Nigeria is called to be a great nation. Its problems – terrorism, religious persecution, economic hardship – can be overcome by leaders committed to the common good. It was a great honour to address faith and political leaders in Abuja ahead of Nigeria...
This week I’ve had the great privilege of hosting the Primates of Tanzania and the Democratic Republic of the Congo at Lambeth Palace. These are two provinces of the Anglican Communion that we must hold in our prayers. During his stay in the UK, Arc...
We must stand in prayerful solidarity with churches in the Congo as they seek peace and reconciliation in their country. I’m deeply grateful to Congolese Anglican and Catholic leaders for an update on their extraordinary efforts to resolve conflict and...
Revd Julie Boyd lost her son to suicide last year. Since then she has been working with West Norfolk Mind on a project at her church to help people who are struggling. As Julie says: “It’s such a powerful thing to speak of our faith through the actions...
If you are walking in darkness today, this is a reminder: you are loved. You are precious. You have value. Sometimes we need others to believe this for us. I believe it for you today, and pray you come to believe it too. #WorldMentalHealthDay
We are always calling for peace: that’s the call of the Church – peace with God, peace with each other, peace in the world.

When we walk closer with our brothers and sisters in other Churches, the world sees Christ shining ever more brightly. Grateful for a good conversation with Bishop Efraim Tendero of the World Evangelical Alliance about sharing the good news of Jesus an...
The Church of England is sending its first chaplain to refugees to Calais. I'm delighted at this adventure in faith and compassion by the Diocese of Europe, Canterbury Diocese and USPG. Please pray for Canon Kirrilee Reid as she begins her ministry.
Praying is simply sitting before God and allowing him - through Jesus - to shape who we are. How has prayer changed you?
Where do we begin the search for wisdom? We look at Jesus, who showed his ambitious disciples what it means to be truly dependent on God. Watch my sermon at Trinity Wall Street in New York City:
“Peace be with you.” Those words of Jesus – after he was crucified, died and rose again – made it clear that hatred had been overcome by love. Despair had been healed and replaced with hope. The good news? Jesus is still speaking those words today. ...
All the way through the Bible – and above all in Jesus Christ – you hear the call for justice in society. Yesterday I spoke at the Trades Union Congress conference about creating a society where everyone matters – and the most vulnerable people are c...
Five years ago I told the CEO of Wonga I wanted credit unions to compete him out of business. Today I said let’s put church-run food banks and night-shelters out of business. Watch or read my full speech at the TUC conference: bit.ly/2MmOAT7
Today our Coptic brothers and sisters celebrate the Coptic New Year. The Feast of Nayrouz is always a time of recalling the martyrs – ancient and recent – of this faithful and precious Church. We stand with you, and pray that Christ will strengthen, co...
It’s distressing and depressing that any community – especially the Jewish community – feels insecure in the country they love. Ahead of Rosh Hashanah, I spoke with my friend Chief Rabbi Mirvis about tackling antisemitism and hopes for the New Year.
Today, as people from all walks of life – from CEOs to community organisers, entrepreneurs to trade unionists – we’re saying we need profound change so that our economy works for everyone. The UK has plenty to be proud about. But work no longer keeps ...
The cross shows us the transformation of hatred into love. Today I was given a special gift by the Diocese of Taiwan – a cross made from artillery shells. Made as part of the diocese’s peacemaking ministry, these crosses show us that the love of Jesu...
Today, I had the privilege of addressing the UN Security Council about mediation and conflict resolution – and the vital role of churches and faith communities in those efforts. In my speech, I said that mediation is about resolving conflict, but rec...
