Companions of the Center for Anglican Communion Studies

The Companions of the Center for Anglican Communion Studies is a membership society for individuals, parishes, dioceses, and institutions seeking to connect with our programs supporting a reconciling, intercultural Anglicanism.

There is no cost or expected donation to join the Companions. Our goals are increased engagement with our programs and a stronger connection with our friends.

The society is grounded in our three guiding approaches: equipping the international community, empowering intercultural leaders, and enriching Episcopal-Anglican identity.


Membership eligibility:

We warmly welcome those in the local region of Virginia Theological Seminary and those residing across the United States of America and around the world.


Member benefits:

All Companions members will receive:

  • an invitation to our annual, members-only dinner featuring leading voices from across the Communion (recent speakers have included the Most Rev. Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, and Bishop Anthony Poggo, Secretary General of the Anglican Communion),
  • free publications,
  • an annual opportunity to advise the Center’s leadership, and
  • updates on CACS events, resources, and opportunities.

Member expectations:

We will rely on the Companions members for:

  • your prayers,
  • participation in 3 CACS events per year, in-person (if local) or virtual (if non-local),
  • recruiting 5 others per year to attend any of our CACS events, and
  • participation in an annual planning meeting, if possible.

We value our relationships and hope you will consider joining the Companions by filling out this short form. Please email us at with any questions. Thank you for your interest in the Center for Anglican Communion Studies.
