"At the 1968 Lambeth Conference of the Provinces of the Anglican Communion were asked to examine the theology of initiation and admission to communion. This has been done in some Provinces and not in others. In those Provinces where work has been undertaken there has been a variety of theological stances and practices. In most of these Provinces change has taken place or is in process. In many places children are being admitted to communion at their baptism or at a time well before the traditional age of confirmation and first communion". -- p. .
