The Anglican Centre in Rome is an ecumenical organization which is dedicated to improving relations between the Anglican communion and the Roman Catholic Church.

It was founded in 1966 with the encouragement of Archbishop Michael Ramsey and Pope Paul VI on the wave of ecumenical enthusiasm engendered by the Second Vatican Council and the birth of ARCIC (The Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission).

The Director of the Centre, and the Archbishop of Canterbury's representative to the Holy See, is the Most Revd Sir David Moxon, who resigned from his roles as an Archbishop of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia, Senior Bishop of the New Zealand dioceses and diocesan Bishop of Waikato.[1] His predecessor, until April 2013, was the Very Revd. David Richardson.

The Centre is housed by the Doria Pamphilj family in historic Rome.
