Anglican churches have existed for a long time in many parts of Germany. They comprise people of various nations, languages, and Christian traditions, and they offer worship and church life in the English language.
The Council of Anglican and Episcopal Churches in Germany (CAECG) is a joint working group between churches belonging to the Anglican Communion.
Some of the Anglican churches in Germany are part of the Diocese in Europe which belongs to the Church of England. Others belong to the Convocation of American Episcopal Churches in Europe. But all are part of the Anglican Communion and together form the Council of Anglican Episcopal Churches in Germany.
Anglicans enjoy a relationship of full communion with the Old Catholic Church. Since 1988 the Church of England and the Evangelical Churches in Germany (EKD) have been developing their ties on the basis of the Meissen Agreement which establishes a degree of communion between the Churches concerned, although it does not yet allow for a full interchange of ministries. On a worldwide level Anglicans are engaged in conversations with all major Christian denominations. Members of other Churches are welcome to receive Holy Communion and share fully in church life.
