About us

Grounded in the Church’s mission to challenge and change the unjust structures of the world, the Anglican Alliance has a mandate to bring together development, relief and advocacy work across the Communion.

Arising from a decision of senior Anglican clergy, the Alliance has the backing of all sections of the Anglican Communion.

Above all, the Alliance belongs to everyone in the worldwide Anglican family committed to working for a world free of poverty and injustice.


Throughout the world, wherever there are crises, Anglican agencies are there with their experience and expertise.

Meet the Agencies


There are 38 Provinces, or member churches, in the Anglican Communion and six other national or local churches known as Extra Provincials. Many Provinces have development, education, health and social service departments working for a better future.

In Africa, the Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa (CAPA) brings together the Communion’s work across the continent, and is a key partner for the Anglican Alliance.


Board of Trustees

The Alliance is constituted as a charitable company with a Board of Trustees.
