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

New this week
quick overview of the web sites and resources we've received -- and linked -- in the last seven days.

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. And there's 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.

Want to become a part?
Add a web site
to Anglicans Online or tell us what you think. Or both!

Want to know more?
Read about
sponsors of Anglicans Online, the awards this site has won (thanks, Tod!), and the publicity it has received.

Hallo again on this First Sunday after Christmas. My dear friends, I received the unexpected and unwelcome gift of the 'flu on Christmas Eve, so I can't summon the energy for any commentary this week. But you will find all the new links we've received in New This Week, and I'm sure you'll enjoy browsing amongst the offerings.

I have a correspondent who is interested in ideas for a parish Epiphany party. If you have Internet resources or ideas to hand, would you email
me directly and I shall pass them on to her? (If the collection is varied enough, I shall post the links and ideas here at Anglicans Online.) Another correspondent has asked for a chat room connected with Anglicans Online. I wonder whether you would find this a useful service, since there are several Anglican-orientated chat rooms on the Internet already. Please email me if you feel strongly one way or the other. Thanks.

Although most of us follow the rhythm of the church's year, we can't but be aware of the temporal calendar as well. Thus nodding for a moment to that calendar, we
wish every visitor a blessed and happy 1998. In this new year, may God watch over and protect this part of the Holy Catholic Church called 'The Anglican Communion'.

See you next Sunday.
