CONTINUING ANGLICAN CHURCH
WARMLY WELCOMES YOU
Celebrating the Centenary
We are descendants of the Church of England and began in the year 1921 in the United States and South Africa. Like most Churches, we have adapted and grown over the decades as shown on our website.
Our conviction is to continue sharing the riches of the love of God in an ever-changing world, be faithful in the continuity of the historic Anglicanism in terms of Polity, Theology and Worship which remain true today as it was when our Church founders took steps of birthing this Church.
We actively commit ourselves compassionately to all countries and communities to share the refreshment of our faith. Believing that together with you can accomplish all things through Christ Jesus. By His Grace, Mercy and in the Spirit of Unity, respect and trust as well as support each other to ably care for those in need.
We pray that this website shall reach many people as well as the lost souls and introduce them to the GRACE OF GOD solely and steadfastly abiding by His Holy and inspired Word.
We invite you to visit this website hoping to find the necessary information of your interest. You are welcome to reach out to us with any questions or prayer requests.
During the 1960s and 1970s, our intrepid pioneers played a significant role in the fight against Apartheid in South Africa and worked with Dr Martin Luther King Jr during the Civil Rights Movement in the United States of America.
We believe that the traditional forms of Anglican faith and worship have been revised, altered and abandoned within the Anglican Communion in recent decades.
By “CONTINUING” therefore, we mean the continuing of both Anglican lines of Apostolic succession and historic Anglican belief and practice.
FOR PROSPECTIVE CLERGY
The Continuing Anglican Church was recommissioned in August 2019, by only clergy and laypeople who previously left Provinces comprising Archbishop of Canterbury’s Anglican Communion.
Men may become clergy of the Continuing Anglican Church. We will not incardinate nor ordain women as deacon or priest, but appropriately qualified women may become a member of the ancient historic order of Deaconess. Both men and women are warmly welcome to apply to become Lay Readers. We greatly value the contribution of women to lay ministry.
We will not incardinate nor ordain any practising homosexual into Holy Orders.

St Peter the Apostle
The Continuing Anglican Church – Anglican Continuum owes its Episcopate and Apostolic Authority to the Syrian Church of Antioch where their disciples were first called Christians, and of which the See of St Peter the Apostle was the first Bishop. (See “Our History“)
