CELEBRATING THE CENTENARY
CONTINUING ANGLICAN CHURCH
WARMLY WELCOMES YOU
We are descendants of the Church of England and began in the year 1921 in the United States and South Africa. Like most Churches, we have adapted and grown over the decades as shown on our website.
Our conviction is to continue sharing the riches of the love of God in an ever-changing world, be faithful in the continuity of the historic Anglicanism in terms of Polity, Theology and Worship which remain true today as it was when our Church founders took steps of birthing this Church.
We actively commit ourselves compassionately to all countries and communities to share the refreshment of our faith. Believing that together with you can accomplish all things through Christ Jesus. By His Grace, Mercy and in the Spirit of Unity, respect and trust as well as support each other to ably care for those in need.
We pray that this website shall reach many people as well as the lost souls and introduce them to the GRACE OF GOD solely and steadfastly abiding by His Holy and inspired Word.
We invite you to visit this website hoping to find the necessary information of your interest. You are welcome to reach out to us with any questions or prayer requests.
We believe that the traditional forms of Anglican faith and worship have been revised, altered, and abandoned within the Anglican Communion in recent decades.
By “CONTINUING” therefore, we mean the continuing of both Anglican lines of Apostolic succession and historic Anglican belief and practice.
The church was recommissioned, furbished and accordingly renamed as the Continuing Anglican Church – Anglican Continuum in August 2019, by only clergy and laypeople who previously left Provinces comprising the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Anglican Communion.
The Continuing Anglican Church – Anglican Continuum stands with the Global Anglican Future Conference (Gafcon) by assenting to the Jerusalem Declaration as the contemporary expression of Anglican doctrine and practice.
FOR PROSPECTIVE CLERGY
Men may become clergy of the Continuing Anglican Church – Anglican Continuum. We do not incardinate nor ordain women as deacons or priests, but appropriately qualified women may become a member of the ancient historic order of Deaconess. Both men and women are warmly welcome to apply to become Lay Readers. We greatly value the contribution of women to lay ministry.
We do not incardinate nor ordain any practising homosexual into Holy Orders.
The Continuing Anglican Church – Anglican Continuum is intended to reach out to all; offering ourselves as examples of Christian love while preserving our Anglican heritage and traditions. We formed the ANGLICAN CONTINUUM (Communion of Continuing Anglicans) and we offer Godly fellowship through dialogue and discussion.
Become a supporter of the ANGLICAN CONTINUUMⓇ (THE COMMUNION OF CONTINUING ANGLICANS) today!

St Peter the Apostle
The Continuing Anglican Church – Anglican Continuum 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 “Our History“)
