The Global Anglican was established in 1879 as The Churchman and was published as Churchman until 2020.

The Global Anglican is a journal for the Church of England and global Anglicanism. Each issue aims to promote the faith of the Holy Scriptures and such teachings of the ancient Fathers and Councils of the Church as are agreeable to the said Scriptures. In particular such doctrine is to be found in the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion, The Book of Common Prayer, and the Ordinal, in line with the doctrinal position of Church Society.

The Global Anglican is a journal committed to excellence in upholding high academic standards in its articles, book reviews and editorial.

The Global Anglican is an ecclesiastical journal that aims to speak to the pastoral needs of the contemporary church.

The Global Anglican aims to equip ministers, students and lay people to persuade others of the eternal truths of our faith in Jesus Christ and the need for them to be applied today for the renewal of the church and the conversion of the world.

“Today there are 41 provinces in the Anglican Communion, with the recent inaugurations of the Episcopal Church of Sudan in 2017, Iglesia Anglicana de Chile in 2018, and Alexandria in 2020. This global trend continues to gather pace. Meanwhile, many vibrant new expressions of Anglicanism have begun to flourish outside the structures of the old Communion. It is no longer sufficient to be a merely parochial, or even provincial, Anglican. Anglicanism is a truly global movement. In keeping with these new realities, our new name is not just The Anglican, but The Global Anglican.”
Andrew Atherstone, Chair of The Global Anglican Editorial Board
