About The Diocese in Europe (Church of England)
We are a Mission-shaped diocese - a network of Christian communities and congregations serving Anglicans and other English-speaking Christians across an enormous geographical area.We minister in a myriad of situations, in most of which the Church of England has scarcely been heard of, questions of establishment scarcely arise, civic links may take a very different form, and denominational identity is often much less important than the language of worship. English churches and congregations have been established on the Continent since before the Reformation. The number of these grew to such an extent that in 1633 congregations of the Church of England in all foreign countries were placed under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of London. Anglican dioceses and then provinces were later formed in all parts of the world outside the United Kingdom.The Diocese in Europe is made up of churches and congregations spread across forty-two countries on three continents, and covering one sixth of the earth’s land surface. And yet, this is a Diocese of the Church of England.
