The Open Episcopal Church

The Communion of the Open Episcopal Church in the Province of the United Kingdom and Ireland

The Open Episcopal Church is a growing ecumenical denomination that calls itself “the small church with a big heart”. It has bishops in England, Scotland and Wales and clergy throughout the United Kingdom. It has ministered to hundreds of thousands of people and has over 25,000 members – a vocal and active champion of religious equality and works to model and encourage inclusive community.   
     The Open Episcopal Church consecrated the first woman bishop for England in 2003, Wales in 2007, and consecrated the first woman bishop for Scotland in June 2012.  The core vision of the church is encapsulated in the scripture: There is no Jew or Greek, servant or free, male or female: because you are all one in Jesus Christ.”  Unity, equality and diversity are core principles of church life. Holy orders are open to all irrespective of gender or sexual identity. The Church marries and blesses alike the unions of heterosexual couples and those of other sexual identities. All are offered the sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ, whatever their age or belief or philosophy.  Many of the clerics are itinerant after the apostolic model, bringing the sacraments into people’s homes, gardens and community centres; baptising children and celebrating marriage in ways accessible to ordinary families.
     The Open Episcopal Church does not require adherence to a particular interpretation of the Christian tradition. It regards religious language as negotiating mystery, acknowledging that no story, doctrine or culture can adequately encompass the divine. Freedom in thought, in worship and in ministry is encouraged. The social concern of the church prompts members to work with the homeless, support development projects, care for addicts, help rehabilitate offenders, run mental health projects and stop as ‘Good Samaritans’ to help those with roadside troubles.  
     Not defined as a local worshiping community or as an organization, but as the life of God abroad throughout society and within all people, the Open Episcopal Church regards all as playing their part in the quest towards God and all who work for good are welcome as members.  The church received national and international attention due to the wedding blessing Archbishop Blake conducted for Jade Goody and Jack Tweed and through the launch of ‘Post the Host’ an outreach provision to distribute the consecrated Hosts by post.       The church has been at the forefront of campaigning for equal marriage in the U.K. and  Archbishop Blake was invited recently to attend Downing Street to meet with the Prime Minister. 
    The church wishes to be open to the Holy Spirit’s ingenuity and to remodel form and structure so that the vital inheritance of Christianity is not lost for this generation.
