Emmanuel Bristol is a family of churches working together to make more disciples, who will plant more churches, to show more people that Jesus is Lord.

Ever wondered why we’re Anglican?!

Emmanuel Bristol is part of the Church of England and every so often people ask why we are. Just one reason is a document known as The 39 Articles of Religion. Drawn up at the beginning of the reign of the first Queen Elizabeth it is the great biblical and doctrinal definition of what it means to be an Anglican and is a great Reformation summary of the Gospel and it’s implications.

The Church Society have just published a really helpful and accessible introduction to the articles linking each of them with a Bible passage, providing an explanation and some questions to reflect upon, and then closing with a prayer to pray in response. It could be a slightly different way of doing your quiet times over a 39 day period. Contributors include men and women, scholars and pastors, bishops…and me!
