Forward in Faith

is an association of Catholics and Evangelicals
- female and male, young and old -
seeking to renew the Church in the historic faith

  • We are committed to the catholic faith as the Church of England received it, and to proclaiming it afresh in this generation.

  • We uphold catholic order and the catholic doctrine of the sacraments, and in particular the threefold ministry in historic succession, which the Church of England shares with the Church throughout the world and across the ages.

  • We long for the visible unity of Christ's Church, and especially for communion between the Church of England and the rest of the Western Church.

For these reasons, we are unable in conscience to accept the ordination of women
to the priesthood and episcopate.

We are working, through the Society under the patronage of S. Wilfrid and S. Hilda, for an
ecclesial structure with a ministry and sacraments in which we can have confidence, so that we
can flourish within the Church of England and make our full contribution to its life and mission.
