    I just discovered this outfit and their splinter 'Evangelical Connexion of The Free Church of England' and wondered what the members of this forum thought about them.

    The Free Church of England, from what I understand, has orders that are recognized by the Church of England itself, and it is in communion with the Reformed Episcopal Church and thereby has some connection to the ACNA. I have seen sermons from FCE clergy before and they have been pretty good. They might be a good alternative for someone living in the UK and close to one of their parishes.

    I don't know anything about the "Evangelical Connexion", though.

    I'd not heard of them until quite recently. From their website it appears that they're quite a small body in England with around 20 churches.

    The nearest congregation to me is two hours drive away. Had one been nearer I might've considered visiting out of curiosity.

    There's an interesting (but older) thread on another religious forum including input from a former FCE minister:

    That thread you referenced is quite interesting. I got some of my information from Wikipedia at

    http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_Church_of_England

    but do wonder where that information came from after reading the "Ship of Fools" thread!
