They will meet again in September 2016.The Ecumenical Patriarch has now concluded his visit to the Archbishop of Canterbury. It was announced today that Archbishop Justin has been invited to a conference next year at the Phanar – the home of Patriarch Bartholomew in Istanbul – to discuss the churches’ response to human trafficking.Click here to read the joint communiqué from Archbishop Welby and Patriarch BartholomewThe agreed text, In the Image and Likeness of God: A Hope-Filled Anthropology, is available to purchase from the Anglican Communion’s online shop.
