Singing the same song may carry quite different meanings, depending on one’s location within global Anglicanism. CONTEMPORARY ANGLICANISMS: ROOTS OF A TRADITION The Episcopal Church in the United States of America and the Church of Uganda are both branches of the worldwide Communion of Anglican churches. The Anglican Church, or Church of England, was founded when the English church broke from Roman Catholicism in 1534. 1 Anglicans also carried on the Catholic understanding of Christian identity as rooted in participation in the sacramental rites of the church, rather than viewing church membership as primarily a matter of doctrinal belief, as in most Protestant traditions.

An increasing number of Anglican churches now offer English-language “renewed” services, responding to the demand from young people for services featuring spontaneous prayer, a high degree of lay leadership, and Northern-style praise music like that heard in Pentecostal churches and on Lighthouse TV.

Evangelical Episcopalians like those at St. Timothy’s, reading the Bible through the lens of faith commitments to its literal truth, plain sense, and authority, often arrive at conclusions that are different from those of moderate and liberal Episcopalians who see the Bible as a historically situated document and feel freer to interpret its meaning and relevance.
