About the Church Times

The Church Times, founded in 1863, is known for informed and independent reporting of Church and world news. Each issue includes wide-ranging features and interviews, Bible commentary, lively debate on current affairs, cartoons, book reviews, and more.

 

The Church Times 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.
