Welcome to the Free Church of England.
It is the goal of The Free Church of England, to be a branch of the Holy Catholic Church that is Evangelical in zeal for the primacy of the Scriptures and the proclamation of the Gospel, Catholic in the expression of “the faith once delivered to the saints” and orthodox in doctrine and morals. We stand in the Anglican tradition and our worship is based on the historic liturgies of the Church of England.
It is also our apostolic mission, through a well balanced approach to Christian formation, to enable all our people, ordained and lay, and especially our children and young people, to develop into effective ambassadors of Christ in the Church and in the world.
We are committed by our constitution to seek and maintain communion with other Churches and therefore it is our firm desire to seek full sacramental communion and visible unity with other Christians who worship God as Trinity and who hold the Catholic and Apostolic Faith revealed in the Scriptures.
In these times of realignment among Christians in the UK and globally our mission is to offer a home for all orthodox Christians (of Anglican or other backgrounds) who hold “that which was believed everywhere, always, and by all” (Vincent of Lerins), and, by a ministry of Word and Sacrament, to equip them to live and witness for Christ.

"[Jesus] is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, He upholds the universe by the word of his power." - Hebrews 1:3
