Now called the Reformed Evangelical Anglican Church of South Africa, it is not recognised by the Anglican Communion but maintains strong links with the Diocese of Sydney. The established Church of the Province of South Africa was formed in 1870. In 1938, with help and advice from Archbishop H.W.K. Mowll, the Church of England in South Africa adopted a federal Constitution. In practice the Church is organised as one Diocese with a Bishop and Area or Assistant Bishops. Bishop Stephen Bradley was an Australian who came to South Africa in the 1930s and was Presiding Bishop from 1965-1984.
Donated by Peter Spartalis after the completion of his MTh thesis in 1990.
