First time here?
Start here to learn about being Anglican.

Looking for a parish?
We've got the biggest list of parishes and dioceses in the
UK and Europe, Canada, the USA, and around the world. You'll also find a page for Anglican-related denominations not in communion with the See of Canterbury.

Looking for Anglican resources?
You'll find comprehensive
general links for clergy and lay, pages for youth ministers and young Anglicans, and a section on music.

Can't get enough news?
News Centre has links to coverage of major Anglican news events, and the Hot Issues page explores issues in more depth.

Feel like chatting?
Join a
discussion group, some of the liveliest spots in the Anglican Communion.

sponsors of Anglicans Online, the awards this site has won (thanks, Tod!), add your site to our listings, or let us know what you think.

(Dear friends, I must ask your understanding and patience: look for the weekly update Monday evening 27 October, Eastern Standard Time. I thought I could manage the revisions on a laptop whilst I was out of town, but that proved manifestly impractical. Sorry! Cynthia)

Hallo again to all. The home of the much-loved 'A New Zealand Prayer Book' has come online: The Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. With links to each strand (tikanga) of the church - Te Pihopatanga o Aotearoa, the Dioceses in New Zealand and the Diocese of Polynesia - the site includes, in addition to general information, the Constitution / te Pouhere, and a brief history. You might like to explore the beautiful Diocese of Christchurch on the South Island, the first EnZed diocese with a web site.

Leaving the spring-like climes of the Southern Hemisphere and heading to the UK,
recent speeches by the Archbishop of Canterbury are featured at the not-quite-ready Church of England web site. Also out of England is a new mailing list, theol-educ, which is short for, not surprisingly, 'theological education'. The list is directed to people involved in education professionally and who wish to chat about texts, extension courses, library acquisitions, and the like.

In the USA, one can now find the
final text of the resolutions brought before the 72nd General Convention of the Episcopal Church held last July in Philadelphia. There's a topical overview and links to the full text of each resolution. In addition, the supplemental liturgical material with newly approved inclusive-language texts, called Enriching Our Worship, is now online.

Whilst in ECUSA, so to speak, many might find Ted Mollegen's
stewardship web pages a wonderful starting point for issues of giving, with a host of good links. And in Vermont, three colleges, perhaps recognising the extraordinary popularity of Hildegard of Bingen in the States, are sponsoring an international conference in 1998, the 900th year of the birth of this remarkable woman. Online registration begins in December and, amongst other notables, the Anonymous 4 will be there. Speaking of conferences in the States, the North American chapter of the Society of Ordained Scientists will represent the Episcopal Church and help sponsor the next Ecumenical Roundtable on Science, Technology, and Religion in Boston next May. If you've like more information, email the Revd John F. Hird.

For a comprehensive page of Anglican resources, have a look at
Links for Seminarians. Guaranteed to interest many of us who are not students at seminaries or theological colleges, the page has been developed by Frank Logue, a Masters of Divinity student at Virginia Theological Seminary. His collection is a good one.

See you next Sunday.
