Parish Affiliation

Parishes are invited to affiliate to The Society.


The Parishes of The Society are listed here.


Affiliation is open to parishes that receive episcopal ministry from a member of the Council of Bishops

  • as their diocesan (the Bishop of Chichester) or area bishop (the Bishop of Wakefield), or
  • having passed a new resolution under the House of Bishops’ Declaration.

The minimum annual affiliation fee is £60, payable by Standing Order (annually, or in quarterly or monthly instalments).


Parishes that are affiliated to The Society may also opt to be registered as a Forward in Faith parish at no extra cost (for further details, see the affiliation leaflet), so that they can be represented in the National Assembly and receive discounts on advertising.


Parishes that affiliate to The Society will receive a laminated card that can be displayed on a noticeboard and will be entitled to use the Society logo and branding (available here). 


Society parishes are asked to encourage their members to support The Society by joining Forward in Faith (the membership organization which supports, administers and pays for its work).


The affiliation form, which contains further information, is available here.
