Celebrating the centenary
WORLDWIDE ANGLICAN CHURCH
WARMLY WELCOMES YOU
The Worldwide Anglican Church’s journey 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 passionately, compassionately and dynamically 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 most need.
The Worldwide Anglican Church has several thousand parishes and clergies across five continents. (April 2019)
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.
The Worldwide Anglican Church is truly a worldwide Church that has set sincere goals to obey our Lord Jesus Christ’ great commission in thought, word, and deed:
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, …” (Matthew 28:19)

1. The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended,
The darkness falls at Thy behest;
To Thee, our morning hymns ascended,
Thy praise shall hallow now our rest.
2. We thank Thee that Thy Church unsleeping,
While earth rolls onward into light,
Through all the world her watch is keeping,
And rests not now by day or night.
3. As o’er each continent and island
The dawn leads on another day,
The voice of prayer is never silent,
Nor dies the strain of praise away.
4. The sun, that bids us rest, is waking
Our brethren ‘neath the western sky,
And hour by hour fresh lips are making
Thy wondrous doings heard on high.
5. So be it, Lord; Thy throne shall never,
Like earth’s proud empires, pass away:
Thy kingdom stands and grow forever,
Till all Thy creatures own Thy sway.
