- to report to the Anglican Communion by August 31, 2004, through the Task Team on Poverty and Trade, on the Anglican Church of Canada's contributions to development and poverty work to help give a complete picture of the Anglican Communion's efforts to achieve Millennium Development Goals.

Text
That this General Synod affirms the significant role in the witness, life and ministry of the Anglican Communion, that can be played by Lambeth Conferences. We assure the bishops, staff and visitors involved in the Conference to be held in 1978, of our prayers for them as they prepare for and take part in that gathering.
We rejoice that the Dioceses of the Canadian Church have been able to share, in some measure, in bearing the burden of the costs of this Conference. We offer to the Archbishop of Canterbury as president of this conference and to Bishop John Howe as its organizing secretary, the assurance of our readiness to support them with every resource of leadership, planning and design available to us. We look forward with hope and joy to the renewal and enrichment of the Anglican Church in its mission throughout the world, which may spring from Lambeth 1978. CARRIED ACT 36
