Church Times

The world's largest-selling Anglican newspaper, published weekly since 1863; independent of the Church of England, it has a large subscription list of church readers and students across the globe.

From its inception, the Church Times defended the spiritual independence of the Church of England, in spite of the Church's Established status. Many of the ceremonial and doctrinal matters that the paper championed are now accepted as part of mainstream Anglicanism.

An "ecclesiastical and general" newspaper, it provides extensive coverage of meetings of the Church of England's central bodies, including the Convocations, the Church Assembly, and the General Synod but also covers world events. Much of its space has always been given over to book reviews and, more recently, coverage of the arts.
