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 to which we link.

Worth Noting
Each week we try to find something interesting that we recommend as 'Worth Noting'. This week we think perhaps everyone is paralysed by the ugly infighting surrounding the choice of the next Archbishop of Canterbury. If you enjoy train wrecks, you ought to go read all about it in the News Centre and recall that we told you it was Worth Noting. Or you could add an 'h'. We'll see if we can't find some cute human-interest story with an Anglican spin to list here, so that this section isn't utterly empty.
