Welcome!

I am so glad that you have found the Forward Ministry web site. Have a look around. Read an article or two. Explore the links. You will learn a lot about Anglican Catholics who are alive with the Good News of Jesus.

Many years ago St Augustine (AD 354-430) said to the Lord: "Our heart is restless untill it comes to rest in thee."

Down through history, millions of people have found that to be true. Whoever you are reading this, I sincerely hope that you will encounter the Lord for yourself - if you haven't already - and then grow in love and understanding as you enter more deeply the life of the Church community.

If you return to this site on a regular basis you will discover an ever-expanding range of resources and teaching materials to help you in your adventure of faith.

There are also many links and articles from across the Christian traditions that will prove useful for those in different forms of lay and ordained ministry.

Thank you for visiting. May the Lord bless you and keep you.
