 Issues | Church of England | Introduction

National Church

The Church of England is the established and national Church of England.  It is the historic church of the English peoples, it is legally part of the constitutional processes of the nation and it is represented, in theory, in every geographical area of the nation.

Whilst there were churches in England from early days a uniform and to some extent unified Church of England dates from the immediate aftermath of the Synod of Whitby in 664AD and in particular to the labours of Theodore of Tarsus, Archbishop of Canterbury. Under Theodore the seven kingdoms which occupied England and southern Scotland, both Angles and Saxons, came to have a united Church with common canon law, ceremonies and oversight of the Archbishop.

The Church of England as a body thus predates the establishment of the nation of England by a century and a half.
