Bishop William GodfreyThe Anglican Church of Peru is a missionary diocese with growing churches, forming part of the Body of Christ in South America's third largest country. There are parishes and missions in Lima, Arequipa, Juliaca, Ica and Cabanaconde as well as numerous social outreach and development programs so desperately needed in this poor country. As a missionary diocese we still rely on support from overseas mission personnel, mission organizations, and direct support from churches and individuals.

As part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, which has more than 80 million members found in 160 different countries, our spirituality is catholic, evangelical and charismatic - catholic in that we preserve the faith of the early Christian Church, with its sacraments and three fold ministry of bishops, priests and deacons; evangelical in our emphasis on the authority of the Holy Scriptures and the proclamation of the word of God; and charismatic in that we rely on the grace and power of God for our work and ministry.

The Anglican Church of Peru is a diocese which is clearly both Peruvian and Anglican in its identity.  Its roots and history go back to the first half of the nineteenth century with the arrival of English and N. American immigrants. But Peruvian congregations are now the overwhelming majority, even though there is still a live English-speaking congregation at the Cathedral. National  clergy and lay ministers make the Church and its worship relevant to the people they serve in Christ’s name and in many of our congregations Latin American Christian music enhances the worship.

Again, we welcome you to our Diocese. As you browse our web site, we hope you will be blessed by our Lord Jesus Christ and will find out more about who we are and what we do; that you will want to support us with your prayers and one day, maybe, come and visit us.

¡Bienvenidos!   Welcome!
