Free Church

This collection of websites has been selected around the theme of Free Church religion. The Free Churches (successively known in previous generations as Dissenters and Nonconformists) formally emerged in the seventeenth century. They originally comprised individuals and denominations refusing to conform to the doctrines and practices of the Church of England but have come to include a large number of evangelical and renewal movements which have grown up quite independently of the established Church. Most, but not all, of them are trinitarian. The major categories, in terms of numerical strength, currently comprise Baptist, Methodist, Reformed and Pentecostal. In addition to the websites included in this collection, there is a separate special collection for the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
