Becoming an Anglican

Whether you are a baptized Christian or exploring Christianity or Anglicanism for the first time, you are most welcome at your local Anglican church. You may become a member of the Anglican Church (“an Anglican”) by regularly attending an Anglican church and contributing to its life and work (also known as its “ministry”). To find an Anglican church in your neighbourhood, visit Find a Church.

If you are baptized in the name of the Holy Trinity in a Christian church or denomination, your baptism is acknowledged as valid within the Anglican Church. If you are a self-declared member of and accept the authority of the Anglican Church of Canada your membership is acknowledged.  You may choose to do this through a service of confirmation or reception by the bishop. Please speak to your parish priest.

If you are not baptized and are interested in becoming baptized, please approach your parish priest. For more information about baptism, see the Baptism page.
