Lambeth Call webinars to focus on safeguarding

THE Lambeth Call on Safe Church (Features, 19 August 2022) will be the subject of webinars on 17 and 18 April, during which representatives of Anglican Churches are invited to discuss the topic in their own contexts. Members of the Communion’s Safe Church Commission, established in 2016, will lead the webinars, for which anyone can register on the Lambeth Conference website. The Calls were introduced at the Lambeth Conference in 2022, and are being further explored as part of “Phase 3” of the Conference (News, 21 April 2023). Previous webinars have focused on Anglican identity (News, 10 November 2023), discipleship (News, 2 June), and the environment.

 

Two accused of murdering Egyptian monks

TWO men appeared in court in South Africa on 14 March, charged with fatally stabbing three monks of the Coptic Orthodox Church. The Associated Press reports that the case was postponed so that the accused — Saeed Basanda and Samuel Avamarkos — could secure legal representation and an Arabic translator. The pair were arrested after three monks were stabbed to death at a monastery in Cullinan, east of Pretoria. Both gave their address as the monastery compound.
