We seek to live out the Christian faith in ways that proclaim the gospel and serve our communities, through our 496 parishes and 187 church schools. In these troubled times, Jesus’ message of forgiveness and reconciliation is urgently needed, and we aim to live it out through our Changing Lives approach to church life and service.
We firmly believe that our Christian churches are part of a world-wide fellowship, which we express particularly though our links with our Anglican brothers and sisters in Zambia.

Still not sure?
The rejesus website has been developed by the main churches in England for people to explore who Jesus was and is. The site offers an enormous variety of information, spirituality, interaction and entertainment, and is highly recommended for people who are not sure about what the Christian faith means or involves, or what they believe.
The Christian Enquiry Agency is there to assist those exploring the Christian faith, whether for the first time or revisiting it again. It provides various resources to help people on their journey towards Jesus Christ, and provides the facility to email directly with specific questions.
You can find many more resources and useful websites in useful links.
In addition, our Resource Centre holds a full selection of material on all aspects of church life and Christian faith.
