THE CONTINUING ANGLICAN CHURCH WARMLY WELCOMES YOU
CELEBRATING THE CENTENARY
The journey of the Continuing Anglican Church (COACH) began in 1921. Like most organizations and churches, we have adapted and grown over the decades as you will learn on Our History page. Our conviction to faithfully continue to share the richness of the love of God in an ever-changing world, through the expression of our beloved traditional Anglican faith, remains as true today as it did when our Founding fathers took the bold and obedient step of birthing our church.
We actively extend ourselves compassionately to all countries and communities to share the refreshment of our faith. We believe that together all things can be accomplished through Christ Jesus, and with His grace and mercy, we work together in a spirit of unity, respect, and trust to support one another and care for those in need.
We retain autonomy and we have and will continue to develop our uniqueness.
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 pray, with this website, to reach lost souls and introduce them to the GRACE OF GOD, solely and steadfastly abiding by his Holy Word.
We invite you to look around our website where we hope you will find information that is of interest to you. We pray that your visit will be a blessing, and we warmly invite you to reach out to us with any questions or prayer requests.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”

Congratulatory message from the Worldwide Anglican Church
Posted on September 19th, 2019, by THE OFFICE OF THE PRIMATE:
The Continuing Anglican Church received this congratulatory message from the Worldwide Anglican Church.
After our Lord Jesus had ascended to Heaven, and the Holy Spirit had moved through the blessed Apostles, in order to fulfill “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you,” they had to separate with great courage and conviction to do as they had been instructed. Thus, it is no different for us today. His Grace the Most Rev. ++ Dr Isaac Shunsuke Sato now has the huge responsibility of moving on from the WAC to lead God’s new Church – The Continuing Anglican Church (COACH) as its Patriarch and Presiding Bishop. All of us in the WAC wish him, his clergies and congregations God’s speed, protection, grace, favor, and blessings.
