The Consultation of Anglican Bishops in Dialogue is a fluid group of bishops from Canada, the U.S., England, Scotland and various African countries. Together they seek to build common understanding and respect among parts of the Communion that have been in conflict.

The consultation began at the 2008 Lambeth Conference, when the Anglican Communion was split over issues of same-sex unions and larger questions of Scriptural interpretation.

At this conference Archbishop Colin Johnson of Toronto and the Rev. Canon Dr. Isaac Kawuki Mukasa, a Ugandan-Canadian now on staff with General Synod, began conversations with African bishops. Interested African dioceses started theological correspondence with Canadian counterparts, first on human sexuality and then mission. The consultation has now met in person nine times and will conclude with a final Testimony to 2020 Lambeth Conference.
