AnabaptistA member of a radical movement of the 16th-century Reformation that viewed baptism solely as an external witness to a believer's conscious profession of faith, rejected infant baptism, and believed in the separation of church from state, in the shunning of nonbelievers, and in simplicity of life.Magnifying glass image
AnglicanThe term Anglican (from Anglia, the Latin name for England) describes the people and churches that follow the religious traditions developed by the established Church of England. The Anglican Communion codifies the Anglican relationship to the Church of England as a theologically broad and often diverging community of churches, which holds the English church as its mother institution. Adherents of Anglicanism within the Anglican Communion (that is in communion with the See of Canterbury) worldwide number around 70 million but there are numerous denominations which consider themselves Anglican but which are out of the Communion.Magnifying glass image

Assemblies of GodAs a result of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the turn of the 20th century, thousands of Christians were impacted by the power of God’s Spirit and the Pentecostal Church was ignited. A number of Pentecostal networks were established between 1912 and 1920.
In Birmingham in 1924 the British Assemblies of God came into being. From those early days, leaders and churches worked for the expansion of the Kingdom of God.
Our early leaders gave the wider Church much of its teaching on Pentecostal doctrine through writing books and travelling. Donald Gee and Howard Carter were two who travelled the world to tell people about the new understanding of the Holy Spirit’s activity in the Church.
The Movement grew and many different departments were added to its ministry, reflecting our desire to plant churches and assist the growth of our people in the things of God. Today Assemblies of God has over 1,000 leaders and more than 600 churches with many specialised departments ministering at home and abroad, making us one of the largest Pentecostal denominations in our country.

BaptistBaptist churches are often regarded as an Evangelical Protestant denomination. Baptists emphasize a believer's baptism by full immersion, which is performed after a profession of faith in Jesus as Lord and Saviour. A congregational governance system gives autonomy to individual local Baptist churches, which are sometimes associated in organizations such as the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches or the Southern Baptist Convention. In the late 1990s, there were about 43 million Baptists worldwide, 33 million of them living in the United States.
Other large populations of Baptists exist in Africa, especially in Nigeria (called the Nigerian Baptist Convention), in Ghana (called the Ghana Baptist Convention), and in Sierra Leone (called the Sierra Leone Baptist Convention).
The Baptist Union of Great Britain is a focus for British Congregations.
In the UK, in fact, two streams of Baptist life based on two theological understandings of the death of Christ. General Baptists believed Christ died for everyone in general; the Particular Baptists (who emerged in the 1630s), believed he died for an elected few. The two groups ran in parallel, but in 1813 a General Meeting of the Particular Baptist Denomination was established. In 1832 it set aside the foundational Calvinist 1689 confession of faith and the New Connection of General Baptists joined with them – forming the Baptist Union. The more extreme Calvinists left to form the Strict and Particular Baptists.

CalvinisticNot so much a demonination, although some churches identify themselves as such, Calvinism is a theological system and an approach to the Christian life that emphasizes the rule of God over all things.

Catholic ApostolicThe Catholic Apostolic Church was a religious movement which originated in England around 1831 and later spread to Germany and the United States. While often referred to as Irvingism, it was neither actually founded nor anticipated by Edward Irving. The Catholic Apostolic Church was organised in 1835 under the lead of apostles. The last apostle died in 1901 after which the membership gradually declined.Magnifying glass image

CokelersThe founder, John Sirgood was born at Averring, Gloucestershire, in 1821. The nickname 'Cokeler' is of very early date, and is popularly attributed to Sirgood's preference for cocoa rather than beer.Most aspects of Dependent belief are fairly orthodox within the Arminian traditions of Protestant dissent. They believed firmly in the people's ability to exercise free will and thereby achieve salvation. Thus, in the nineteenth century, they were closer to Primitive Meth­odism for example, than to Congregationalism which was still strongly Calvinistic in its belief in predestination. Like Quakers though, Dependents were and are avowed pacifists and were conscientious objectors during two world wars. Notes from the web site quoted Magnifying glass image
