The modern Church of England still practices Christianity. One of the most important facets of this faith is worshipping together. Meeting in church buildings as a congregation is a basic tenet of the faith. The church spreads the word of God as a warm and caring protector of the faithful. Meeting at church to worship is just one way people are joined in their faith. They celebrate their religious beliefs as well as enrich their lives through service.
The Anglican Church also hosts a variety of groups in their churches. These are part of the community of the church. They give members of the congregation a way to meet other than at worship service. There are Bible Study groups for those that wish further religious education. Many of the groups are social rather than religious. They are a way for members of the congregation to share their lives informally. These groups offer a variety of different venues for new and old congregation members to spend time together.
