Welcome to

Welcome to Lay Anglicana, the online voice for lay people from the pews of Anglican churches the world over. We hope you will get involved by:

  • Reading our BLOG and discussing each post in the related comments (and perhaps contributing a guest post of your own? – please submit a proposal);

  • Using the links in our ARTICLES to other websites in a living encyclopaedia of all things Anglican;

  • Contributing to our collective articles, such as the forthcoming one on leading intercessions, which we will put up on the website to help others;

Our aim is to unify the numerically important – but hierarchically insignificant – laity of the Church of England, and to build bridges with other Anglican lay people across the Communion.

We welcome contributions from the clergy and indeed from other Christian denominations: we hope Lay Anglicana will be useful, not just as a place for lay Anglicans to talk to each other, but as a place where we can all seek to understand the viewpoint of ‘bishops, priests and deacons’ as well as Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, Catholics and so on. (And perhaps it may offer a place where they in turn seek to understand us?)

We rely on donations to keep this website running.
