THE
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 owes its Episcopate and Apostolic Authority to the Syrian Church of Antioch where their disciples were first called Christians, and of which the See of St Peter the Apostle was the first Bishop. (See “History“)

Song of Praise

♫ Hymn “The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended
Author: John Ellerton (1870)
Came from: Holy Trinity Church Stratford-Upon-Avon
“for St George’s Day from Stratford-upon-Avon.” Songs of Praise. BBC One London, 23 April 1989.
“Single Click” the screen to stop.

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.

Amen.
