    Hi, I'm a traditional Anglican worshipping in the Church of England in an 11th century church in Bristol, England. I lean towards Anglo-Catholicism, but fall short of being an out and out papist. I'm one of those who has trouble being described as Protestant and firmly believe that our via media strikes the best balance between two error-ridden extremes. In my time (I'm 62) I've tried to worship at Non-Dominational, Pentecostal, and Reformed Baptist churches, sometimes for years on end, but never felt comfortable.

    I discovered these forums by accident last night and hope to be a productive guest here. I'll change my profile picture once people have got used to the horrors it presents, just so you can put a face to the name, which as you can see is Paul.

    Many thanks.

    Welcome among us Paul. I have found this to be one of the kindest and most respectful places on the internet. I was asked recently to describe where I stood in terms of Anglicanism, in a kind of threatening kind of way, and I was kind of glad to suggest that I was a 39 Articles kind of Anglican, who understood the Elizabethan Settlement and the importance of the Chicago-Lambeth Quadrilateral. That will have left them some work to do on Google. In reality I am an Eastern leaning Anglican.

    Welcome Paul!

    Glad to find another Anglo-Catholic leaning person here. In my neck of the woods it's hard to find a church that is facing that way, so I mostly chat with people online of the same mind-set.

    I have found this community to be very knowledgeable and helpful.
