COMMUNION NEWS SERVICE
Monthly news updates on the Anglican Communion, as officially published by the Anglican Communion office in England. Roughly 20-25
stories in each package, including episcopal appointments and the occasional feature from Anglican World magazine. ACNS offer an
email subscription; you can find the instructions on their web site.
Diocese of Sydney has a world-class communications department, and they
keep a current
list of stories to which they would like to draw your attention. Its
structure and style are not unlike Anglicans Online's own News Centre,
so of course we like it.

ECUMENICAL NEWS INTERNATIONAL
A news service with a special focus on providing religious news for
the international media. Using a worldwide network of correspondents,

The internet has a way of disintermediating distribution. This means
it connects the sender directly to the receiver without intermediate
organisations. The Independent Catholic News is run by a group of journalists
in London. Since its beginnings in May 2000, it has been a good source
of religious news stories by Roman Catholic journaliasts.
THE LIVING CHURCH
The Living Church Foundation operates a lively and well-written online Anglican news
site. We at Anglicans Online always read it carefully before publishing our own News Centre.
An online electronic magazine written and edited by David Virtue. He claims
a large international readership. You will not be ambivalent about
this material; you will either like it or hate it. In March 2003 he
published a diatribe against Anglicans Online; in fact, most of the
contents of this site is a diatribe against something. It is often
said that one is known by one's enemies; we suppose we're honoured
to be counted among Virtue's enemies.
