About Anglican Faith

All Saints BannerHere is a range of articles about various aspects of Anglican Faith and Practice. This extends the glossary where space is limited. The articles here are to help, discover extend and explore.

They are not a catechism, they are not complete, indeed they are a bit random, and if you find one less than helpful, for the moment, read one that is more agreeable.

If all the Anglicans in the world were laid end to end they would never reach a conclusion!
