Precedence[edit]

Within the world-wide Anglican Communion, the Archbishop of Canterbury's Award for Outstanding Service to the Anglican Communion is the highest level of award achievable. It ranks next above the Cross of St Augustine which is awarded for exceptional service to the Anglican Church.

These Lambeth Awards were expanded in March 2016 by Archbishop Justin Welby, by the addition of the six new awards based upon his ministry priority areas. The full suite of non-academic awards now compliments the academic awards available through the Lambeth degrees.
