How the Archbishop works for unity

As Christians work together, serve together, pray together and proclaim the Good News together they are no longer strangers – they are brothers, sisters and friends.
Justin Welby and Vincent Nichols

The Archbishop has an important ministry seeking this reconciliation of Christians. He meets and gets to know other Christian leaders – both on the world stage with such figures as Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew – and closer to home with leading figures in European and British Churches. He supports the work of theologians seeking agreement on Christian faith and life.

He encourages Christians to pray together and to work together – serving our world, especially the poorest – so they demonstrate and share the love of God.

In so many places, in youth projects, food banks and homeless shelters, Christians are working together, whatever their church traditions, in serving the world.

Archbishop Justin has said: "More than ever, we have a strong sense of the unity of Christians. God hears the prayer of the Lord Jesus Christ that we ‘may be one, so that the world may believe that you have sent me’ - and even now is fulfilling his prayer.”
