Dioceses and provinces currently without chapters
Our Society is a federation of chapters. If you do not yet have a chapter in your area, you might think about asking a few like-minded local clergy if they would be interested in forming one. Our Manual gives details about our aims, and explains the process for establishing a new chapter, which may cover more than one diocese. Alternatively you might take part in a chapter in a neighbouring diocese, if one exists within a reasonable travelling distance.
The Society is open to clergy in any diocese in communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury. Currently, chapters exist in the United Kingdom and Europe, The United States of America and Canada, and Australia.
