The Church of England
The Church of England plays a vital role in the life of the nation, proclaiming the Christian gospel in words and actions and providing services of Christian worship and praise. Its network of parishes cover the country, bringing a vital Christian dimension to the nation as well as strengthening community life in numerous urban, suburban and rural settings. Its cathedrals are centres of spirituality and service, and its network of chaplaincies across continental Europe meet important local needs. The Church of England plays an active role in national life with its members involved in a wide range of public bodies. Twenty-six bishops are members of the House of Lords and are engaged in debates about legislation and national and international affairs. The Church of England is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
HOPE brings churches together in mission. The goal is to see individuals and communities in villages, towns and cities throughout the UK transformed by Jesus’ love.
The Evangelical Alliance is the largest and oldest body representing the UK’s two million evangelical Christians. For more than 165 years, it has been bringing Christians together and helping them listen to, and be heard by, the government, media and society. The Alliance connects people for a shared mission, whether it’s celebrating the Bible, making a difference in our communities or lobbying the government for a better society. From Skye to Southampton, from Coleraine to Cardiff, the Alliance works across 79 denominations, 3,500 churches, 750 organisations and thousands of individual members. It’s not just uniting Christians within the UK – it’s a founding member of the World Evangelical Alliance, a global network of more than 600 million evangelical Christians.
