Administrative history

Established in 1909 in Sydney by Canon F. B. Boyce, the Anglican Church League furthers the cause of Evangelicalism in Australia and is active in matters relating to, for example, revision of church literature and Synod issues. The League was established in opposition to the Protestant Church of England Union, and is affiliated with the National Church League in England.
