The Church Times is the UK's leading church newspaper. Always independent of the Church of England hierarchy, it is a comprehensive record of the people, events and opinions of religious life in the UK and overseas over the past 150 years.

To celebrate the publication of our 8,000th issue we're opening up the Church Times Archive to all our readers this month. Until 31st July you can explore every issue in the 1863-current (four weeks ago) archive, issue by issue and page by page, all as originally published and text-searchable. Read our reports of the key events in the life of the church and the country, search for your parish or just see if the clergy you know get a mention.

After the 31st July you can choose to keep full access to the archive by purchasing an archive pass from this website or by ordering a qualifying Church Times subscription.

With a subscription to the archive you can flick page by page through editions, view at full size, download and print pages for family-tree research... or just to see what was happening on that day. Print & Online subscribers to the Church Times have free access to the complete archive. Have the Church Times delivered to you every week: Subscribe to Church Times Here

Packages are available to all Educational and Library establishments worldwide, providing central access to educators, students and Library users.
