OUR ANGLICAN HISTORY AND CONNECTIONS
ANGLICANS HAVE BEEN PRACTICING CHRISTIANITY LONGER THAN THEY'VE BEEN SPEAKING ENGLISH.
Christianity may have already arrived in the British Isles by the end of the first century. A brisk tin trade connected Britannia to the Mediterranean world, allowing for a vibrant exchange of culture and ideas. Some medieval legends even go so far as to paint Joseph of Arimethea as a tin trader, who regularly made trips to England, and may have even brought Jesus to the island in his youth -- a legend rhapsodically enshrined in William Blake's immortal poem, "Jerusalem."
Officially, however, the beginnings of Christianity in England are lost in obscurity. Ps-Hippolytus identification of Aristobulus -- one of the Seventy apostles sent by Jesus -- as the first Bishop of Britain is dubious, but the Church does seem to have sufficiently well-established in England by the fourth century to have sent representatives to the Council of Nicaea (325).
I. ASCETICS AND ADVENTURERS: ANCIENT CELTIC CHRISTIANITY
Paraskevi Project performs Baptisms with grace. It is a great opportunity to rekindle a strong connection with God and our Savior.

NOT ANGLOS, BUT ANGELS
