My Personal Experience

From the Paper:

"According to The Archbishops' Council of the Church of England, the Church of England's roots date back to the time of the Roman Empire when a Christian church came into existence in what used to be the Roman province of Britain. According to early Christian writers Tertullian and Origen, this was in the third century AD. The first member of the British Church was St. Alban who was martyred for his faith on what is now St. Albans Abbey. It was a missionary church with figures like St. Illtud, St. Ninian and St. Patrick evangelizing in Wales, Scotland and Ireland, but the church's organization seemed to have been introduced in the fifth century by invasions led by pagan Angles, Saxons and Jutes. Pope Gregory the Great sent a mission led by St. Augustine of Canterbury in 597 landed in Kent and began working on converting the pagans (Ferguson 78).
"The combination of the three streams of Christianity, the Roman tradition of St. Augustine and his successors and the old Romano-British church and the Celtic tradition coming down from Scotland and associations with people like St. Aidan and St. Cuthbert, resulted in the Church of England or the Ecclesia Anglicana (the English Church)."
