What's New This Week

ALL THE NEW URLS we receive each week are here. We list two (sometimes three) weeks' worth, cycling the old ones off each week. As they disappear from this page, you'll find the links moved to their natural home categories in our resource pages.

If you can't find something that was once here, you can look in our archives or try the AO search engine. It searches our entire site, and it can also search all of the sites that we link to.

News Centre
Easter holidays under threat. Claudia Schiffer to star as Eve in Old Testament. Winchester Cathedral built the wrong statue. Archbishop Gitari rows with government officials. Ugandan government criticises Ugandan bishops. 57 bishops support Jane Dixon. Zimbabwe press freedom discussed in Zimbabwe press. English Archbishops tell faithful that voting in general elections is important. Archbishop Carnley in news again over blessing of gays and over ministry to Jews. Religion on the Internet is a growth business. All this, and more, in the News Centre.

Official sources
Diocese of British Columbia, Diocesan Post, the newspaper of the diocese, published jointly with the Anglican Journal ten times a year (monthly except July and August).

Odds and Ends
The New Jersey Churchscape: The authoritative source on early churches in New Jersey: This looks like a well-conceived and well-written new site, devoted to ecclesiastical architecture in New Jersey. They note: 'We've created a database and photographic inventory on more than half the 18th & 19th century churches in the state and add to it each month. We welcome and solicit all contributions and suggestions from our visitors'.

California: Los Angeles (Silver Lake), Trinity (Los Angeles) (Note: Web site in Spanish and English.)
California: San Francisco, Trinity (California)
Kentucky: Fulton, Trinity (Kentucky)

North Carolina: Wilmington, St John (East Carolina)
Pennsylvania: Southampton, Church of the Redemption (Pennsylvania)
Wisconsin: Platteville, Trinity (Milwaukee)

Watts and Company: The old-line purveyor of ecclesiastical vestments and liturgical appointments. An interesting but strangely odd site that makes heavy use of Flash. Under the 'Tailoring' link, for example, watch as cappa nigras shimmer into readers' vestments, which then teasingly transmogrify into the traditional English bishop's magpie vestments.

Churches in Swansea and Brecon: An interesting site with goals slightly different than most parish or diocesan site, amongst them: 'Provide a "church" presence when one of our communities is searched for on the Internet' and 'To encourage tourists to go to the churches. It is then up to the individual congregations what they do with those who attend'.
The webmaster asks: 'Considering its extent and depth of information it is unique in Wales and probably the UK. Is it unique in the world?'

Bahamas: Long Island, St John (Nassau and the Bahamas)
Brazil: Rio de Janeiro-Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Capela de Santo Agostinho de Cantuaria (Brazil)

Brazil: Rio de Janeiro, Centro Anglicano de Estudos Teològicos (The Anglican Centre of Theological Studies)
