Premier: Matt Redman and Bishop Angaelos among list of Lambeth Awards winners

Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby has announced a new set of Lambeth awards as he marks the third anniversary of his installation.

The non-academic awards recognise outstanding service in various fields and winners this year include UK Coptic church leader Bishop Angaelos, worship leader Matt Redman and former MP Sir Tony Baldry.

The new suite of prizes consist of three existing Lambeth Awards – the Lambeth Cross, the Canterbury Cross and the Cross of St Augustine – and six new awards named after previous holders of the office of Archbishop of Canterbury.

Each award recognises outstanding service in different fields, including those of Archbishop Justin’s ministry priorities: prayer and the religious life; reconciliation; and evangelism and witness.

The recipients will be given the prizes, made from Fairtrade silver by the London firm Cred Jewellery, during a ceremony at Lambeth Palace on 31st March.
