Are there any Anglican churches in Poland? If not, where do Brits worship? Just heard that some 20 Anglican clergymen in the US and some 200 parishioners have converted to Roman Catholicism during this Holy Week.

you have internet access, why don't you search for your answer? (Google "Anglican churches in Poland")

Yes.
Why do you presume "Brits" are all Anglicans?
Ive Methodists,Anglicans,Church of Scotland,Roman Catholics,even a Dominican friar and some distant Jewish relatives in my family :)

Well,ignorance isnt a crime yet :)
I suppose it makes sense to presume a vast majority are,but, TBH, certainly not around my neck of the woods....mind you, Im a mornings walk from where half the Pilgrim Fathers came from and a 20 minute bike ride from the village where Methodism was born :)

ps,always found it *odd* that there are Anglican Churches in the US,so not really worried about 200 people going Papist :)

well maybe, but what is interesting is just how many people never changed from the 'old religion'......and also how close the two churches have become (Cardinal Newman and the Oxford movement), so much so that the last time I was in an ostensibly 'Anglican' church I became convinced I had read the sign at the door wrongly....the smell of incense nearly knocked me out..

You won't find that in the Anglican Church in Warsaw, although Father Felix is a nice guy. They use an RC chapel on Krakowskie Przedmiescie and also have something in Gdansk.

Before the war there were thousands of Anglicans in Poland, especially in Warsaw and Bialystok.

Staggering ignorance.
By the way, some of us (Brits) do not worship anything or anyone, least of all the heroes of fairy tales told to frighten children.

The way the Anglican church is heading, with defection to Rome, the nearest Catholic church will soon suffice.

Is that "High Church" (no druggie pun intended)? I know part of the Church believes in transwottsits,not cross dressing,afaik,but that literal wine being blood and crackers being flesh at the point of eating.......and another part doesnt.

BTW, mod, you are just publicaly showing your stupidity again by deleting this post. High Church is the Anglican branch that believes in the same mumbo jumbo as the catholics.

Any chance you will man up and say why you are randomly moving posts to the bin tonight?

When I was in the UK, I was working with dozens of native Brits of all backgrounds, from what I gathered they were all the same as me - not the slightest bit interested in religion. Now, whether that's a good or bad thing is beyond my knowledge, but I have no interest in religious activity whatsoever although I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm an atheist because everything in the world and beyond didn't get here on its own - but organised religion is of no appeal at all

Maybe,but,a lot,like me,would never talk about things in person.
There is far more a tradition of keeping your religious views to yourself here,probably because of the wide variaty of Christian denominations as well as plain old reserved embarrassment :)

The ones that do open up tend to be born again types,evangelists,very little actual religious learning,lots of blind faith and illogical ignorance.

Many Brits worship only self-indulgence: me, myself and I! And most any deity is better than that innit?!

You can say the same about 'many' Poles, or your nationality, Americans.

And most any deity is better than that innit?!

Only if that deity actually exists.

There is no such thing as an American 'nationality'. There is citizenship, yes, but America is a salad bowl of at least two zillion different nationalities. An Italo-American, Afro-American, Scandinavian American, Americans of Czech, Hispanic,.Haitian, Korean, Arab, etc. heritage have little in common except death and taxes.

You are right, I acknowledge that. Although I've no beliefs, I respect others' traditions and views and wish them well

Anglican Church in Warsaw



I am moving to Warsaw and wondered about a church in English in Warsaw? I am particularly interested in an Anglican or Episcopal church. Anyone have any recommendations for a specific church?
