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.

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.

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 that week. 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.
