Anglican Pastor started from the thought that writing for the parish could be shared with others, so that it might be useful outside of the parish. The first site was called “Rector’s Notes” which then became Anglican Pastor. Even though it began with one writer, it has evolved into a team writer approach. We always write from the pastoral perspective, but we choose various topics and areas. We also invite contributing and guest writers from time to time.
We hope this is a site you can use and share with new Anglicans, or anyone who wants to hear about our Anglican way of being Christian. This is also a good site to share with anyone who wonders what an Anglican Pastor might say about something.
And please let us know if you have any questions or issues you would like us to discuss. You can do so via our Contact page.
