About the College of Archbishops’ Evangelists

The College of Archbishops’ Evangelists works under the presidency of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to encourage, connect and develop the ministry of evangelists across the Church of England. Our programme includes a range of in-person meetings and webinars, communications on evangelism and weekend missions led by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Our members support the evangelistic work of the Church of England across the country.

We believe that the gift of the evangelist comes from the Holy Spirit and is expressed through people of every race, church tradition, gender, social background and age.

We are excited about the incredible variety and talent, creativity and vision that already exists within the college and want to see this multiplied and released through the connections that it enables.

The college is not the only Anglican community committed to evangelism and we want to partner with other agencies and celebrate other ministries. We welcome additional members, who should have both a gift for drawing others into faith and a proven ability to encourage and equip others to exercise their evangelistic giftings.

The college is chaired by the Bishop of Leicester, the Rt Revd Martyn Snow, and our work is overseen by our college council and implemented by three college ambassadors: the Revd Katy Cunliffe, the Revd Dr Christian Selvaratnam and the Revd David Senior.
