About the Church Times

The Church Times, founded in 1863, has become the world's leading Anglican weekly newspaper. It was a family concern until 1989, when ownership passed to Hymns Ancient & Modern, a Christian charitable trust. It has always been independent of the Church of England hierarchy.

The Church Times was started to campaign for Anglo-Catholic principles, which it did with vigour and rudeness. But in the 1940s and '50s the paper began the move to broaden its outlook and coverage. It now attempts to provide balanced and fair reporting of events and opinions across the whole range of Anglican affairs. The rudeness we now leave to our readers.
