The Society is an ecclesial body, led by a Council of Bishops. The purposes of the Society are:

  • to promote and maintain catholic teaching and practice within the Church of England
  • to provide episcopal oversight to which churches, institutions and individuals will freely submit themselves
  • to guarantee a ministry in the historic apostolic succession in which they can have confidence

The parishes of The Society enjoy a relationship of full communion not only with the relevant bishop of The Society but also with all the other parishes of The Society.


The Society is not a membership organization.  The Society is supported and financed by Forward in Faith and administered by its Director.  Those who support the aims of The Society are asked to support its work by joining Forward in Faith.  To join Forward in Faith please click here.
