Anglican Catholic Church. 'We affirm that the Church of our fathers, sustained by the most Holy Trinity, lives yet, and that we, being moved by the Holy Spirit to walk only in that way, are determined to continue in the Catholic Faith, Apostolic Order, Orthodox Worship and Evangelical Witness of the traditional Anglican Church, doing all things necessary for the continuance of the same.' (From the Affirmation of St Louis)

Anglican Catholic Church in Australia. Its web site says very little about it; they seem to assume that visitors to it already know who they are. The primate is the Most Revd Louis W Falk.

Anglican Catholic Church of Canada. 'We are Anglican in background and tradition. We are Catholic - not in the sense of Roman Catholic, though, no doubt, we have much in common with them. Rather, we accept the whole Christian Faith. We don't want to be 'cafeteria-style' Christians, who pick and choose the parts of the Christian religion that we like, and turn up our noses at the rest. "We therefore accept all that Jesus Christ has taught. He is the eternal Son of God, 'the Way, the Truth, and the Life,' who was born into this world as a human child of the Virgin Mary, lived among us as a perfect human being, died on the Cross, rose from the dead, and lives and reigns for evermore.'

Anglican Catholic Communion, Diocese of Southern Africa. 'The Anglican Catholic Church in Southern Africa began some eleven years ago at Polokwane in the Limpopo Province and now has parishes scattered around South Africa .'

Anglican Church IN America. 'The Anglican Church in America is a Province of the Traditional Anglican Communion. The word 'Anglican' refers to our spiritual heritage and roots in the Church of England.'

The Anglican Church International. The ACI is a radically inclusive denomination. Our creator calls every person to turn to God's embrace; to find safety, love, and acceptance. The ACI supports the freedom of every human being to respond to the call of a loving God. We affirm a theology that is life giving and enhancing, rather than one that is shaming, rejecting, or oppressive and punitive

Anglican Church International Communion. Formed 17 November 2001 in Atlanta [Georgia, USA]. 'The new communion is the first step toward bringing greater unity to the much splintered continuing "churches" throughout the world. The guiding principles state "this is a traditional communion dedicated to bring peace and unity to all Anglican worshipers," and adhere to the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and the 1962 Canadian Book of Common Prayer. Signatories to this historic document are The Rt. Rev. Larry W. Johnson, Bishop of Virginia; The Rt. Rev. Lafond LaPointe, Bishop of Haiti; The Rt. Rev. Luther Pierre-Toussaint, Bishop of Haiti; The Rt. Rev. Vincent Thakore, Bishop of the South; and The Rt. Rev. Melvin H. Pickering, Bishop of the Diocese of the Holy Sacrament'.

Anglican Church Of America. 'A radically inclusive dual-denomination: There are many Rites in the one, catholic and apostolic church such as the Anglican Rite, Celtic Rite, Roman Rite or Orthodox Rite (Eastern and Western Rites), Gallican Rite to suggest a few. All are valid expressions of the Orthodoxy of the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.'

The Anglican Church of Virginia. 'We represent a new Anglican Communion called the Anglican Church International Communion.'

'Tracing their origins to the 1930s, Anglican Church parishes and missions of the non-geographical and independent Diocese of the Great Lakes are located in the American Midwest, in several municipalities within the Metropolitan Toronto area, and in other cities in Ontario. The Diocese of the Great Lakes was established in 1998 through the unity proposals of the bishops of the former Independent Anglican Diocese of Ontario and the Independent Anglican Missionary District of the USA. This Diocese works cooperatively with other Episcopalians, including The United Episcopal Church of North America, with which the DGL is in intercommunion, and the Independent Anglican Church (Canada Synod).'

The Anglican Episcopal Church.

Its Presiding Bishop is the Most Rev. Dr. George W. Conner.

The Anglican Independent Communion in the British Isles and Europe 'In a real sense, we are a "Continuing Church", not a new Church.

A separate Australian province has its own website.

Anglican Mission in America. From the web site: 'AMiA is the evolution of the work of First Promise and AACOM, and is dedicated to the creation of a new, orthodox province of the Anglican Communion on American shores'. For our reasoning behind this classification, please see our AMiA-classification report.

Anglican Orthodox Church. 'The Anglican Orthodox Church was founded in 1963 in Statesville, North Carolina by Bishop James Parker Dees as a result of the perceived apostasy taking place in the wider Anglican Communion. The AOC was the first group to separate from the US Episcopal Church since the Reformed Episcopal Church withdrew in the nineteenth century. The AOC is traditional and conservative & adheres to the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion, the Apostles and Nicene Creeds and the ancient homilies and reformed principles of the Church of England. The AOC enjoys member churches in South Africa, Kenya, the Central African Republic, Liberia, Malawi, Madagascar, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, Brazil, Haiti, the Philippines, India, the Fiji Islands, and Pakistan. The AOC stands upon the same biblical principles and theological doctrines as those espoused by the ancient church and affirmed by our founding Bishop Dees.

The Anglican Province of America. This traditional episcopal, evangelical and catholic denomination was established 1970 and uses the American 1928 Book of Common Prayer.

Anglican Province of Christ the King. In 1977, Episcopal clergy and laity gathered in St Louis, Missouri, and set forth a statement of faith called the 'Affirmation of Saint Louis', which expressed their commitment as Episcopalians to orthodox Christianity. The next step was the creation of the Diocese (now Province) of Christ the King in 1978, whose purpose is to put the St Louis statement of faith into action. The Anglican Province of Christ the King uses the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and trains men for the priesthood at its national seminary. The Province has five dioceses which cover the entire United States.

Anglican Province of Saint Jude. This jurisdiction based in Texas and the Philippines notes that 'While we are spiritually and historically Anglican (through Apostolic Succession), in practice, we are not in Communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury nor any Province that is (in Communion with Canterbury, directly or indirectly)'.

Beginning with just 3 small parishes that first year, we now have a presence in over 23 countries and approximately 1200 parishes around the world. Founded in 1992 by independent pentecostal-charismatic congregations, the ICCEC combines charismatic ministry, sacramental worship and the celebration of biblical values born of orthodox, evangelical teaching.'

The Christian Episcopal Church. 'A traditional continuation of the Anglican Church of Canada, [which] upholds and maintains the doctrine, sacraments, and discipline of Christ which the Lord commanded in His Holy Word and which were ever upheld and maintained by the undivided Primitive Church, and which the Church of England received and set forth in the 1562 Thirty-nine Articles of Religion and the 1662 Book of Common Prayer'.

The Church of England (Continuing) 'We are a Protestant and Reformed Church founded on: The Authorised Version of the Bible The Book of Common Prayer 1662 The 39 Articles of Religion Where are the 39 Articles today in the Church of England? Where is the Prayer Book? Where for that matter is the Bible? You will find all these things in the Church of England (Continuing), so if you love the Church of England, that is where you should be!'

Ecumenical Anglican Catholic Church. 'The Ecumenical Anglican Catholic Church is non-discriminatory, non-political, and non-restrictive. We believe in a traditional Anglican form of worship supporting the finest in Catholic heritage, liturgy, and ritual. The unquestionable validity of our apostolic succession comes from Africa, England, Rome, and Russia. We are born out of a sense of escaping the ecclesiastic hypocrisy and human bigotry of men in positions of authority within the church. We refute the "alphabet soup" confusion of Anglicanism.'

The Episcopal Missionary Church. The Episcopal Missionary Church is a "missionary" Church in the sense that it is reaching out to traditional-minded Christians from all backgrounds who find that modernist reforms in their churches have left them without a place to practice their faith. Our motto, "Defend the Historic Faith", is descriptive of both the beliefs and practices of the EMC. All of the traditional values and doctrines which have made the Christian Church the great witness of our Lord's teachings are alive and well, and we invite you to join us as we celebrate Jesus Christ in the Sacraments and proclaim His message of salvation.

Revd. Maternus Dr. Kapinga Diocesan Bishop of Ruvuma to proclaim the Gospel and administer Sacraments, to Italian and/or african anglicans whom are members "in good standing" of the Diocese of Ruvuma. [...] Accordingly EOMI does not claim any Parallel or Overlapped canonical anglican jurisdiction in Italy or Europe. The EOMI recognizes in Italy only the spiritual authority and jurisdiction of the Diocese of Gibraltar (namely Diocese in Europe) of the Church of England.' [Frankly, we're just confused-Ed.]

Evangelical Anglican Church OF America. A traditional conservative denomination based in Brea, California, USA, which uses the 1928 US version of the BCP as its liturgy.

Both the Free Church of England and the Reformed Episcopal Church had been formed to uphold the doctrines of the Anglican Reformation as expressed in the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion and the Book of Common Prayer, which many Evangelicals felt to be under attack from the Oxford Movement. The two denominations cooperated closely from the foundation of the REC in the mid-1870s until the Union of the two Churches in 1927'.

The Free Episcopal Church. 'The Free Episcopal Church stands at the crossroads of all that the Churches have been, and all that the Holy Spirit is inviting the Churches yet to be. We gather as Church to respond to Jesus' request to "feed my sheep". Jesus did not exclude anyone from His Table, and neither do we. We are self-governing local ministries and communities, covenanting together to be Church. In the FEC all people are welcome regardless of the categories that divide us (age, ethnicity, physical ability, gender, social class, sexuality, marital status, and so on). Those fights for a rightful place at the Table, that threaten to tear apart so many faith groups, are not part of our lives together, past or present.'

Holy Cross Anglican Communion. 'We are an independent Anglican/Episcopal church, holding fully to the teachings of the church as passed down through scripture and tradition. We are, however, not rigid or strict in our methods. We believe that each parish should not at all times be the same in formality or decorum. Our clergy have the right to exercise great freedom in vestments, style and worship. We affirm the 39 Articles of Religion. We use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer as our liturgy and our rules of order and structure. We affirm the Nicene Creed as a significant statement of our faith'.

Reformed Episcopal Church. 'The Reformed Episcopal Church, holding "the faith once delivered to the saints", declares its belief in the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament as the Word of God, and the sole Rule of Faith and Practice; in the Creed commonly called the Apostles' Creed; in the Divine institution of the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper; and in the doctrines of grace substantially as they are contained in the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion. This Church recognizes and adheres to Episcopacy, not as of Divine right, but as a very ancient and desirable form of Church polity'. The Diocese of Western Canada and Alaska has its own website.

We hold the Doctrines of Grace as expressed by the English Reformers in the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion, adopted by the American Church in 1801. We worship according to the historic Book of Common Prayer (1928 Revision) respecting that liturgical expression of our Protestant forefathers established by Archbishop Thomas Cranmer in 1549'.
