Extra-provincial Anglican churches


Extra-provincial Anglican churches

The extra-provincial Anglican churches are a group of small, semi-independent church entities within the Anglican Communion. Unlike the larger member churches of the Communion, extra-provincial churches are not part of an ecclesiastical province and are, in five cases, subject to the metropolitical oversight of the Archbishop of Canterbury. There are currently six extra-provincial churches:
* The Anglican Church of Bermuda led by the Bishop of Bermuda
* The Church of Ceylon, Sri Lanka, led by the Bishop of Columbo
* The Episcopal Church of Cuba (under a metropolitan council rather than the Archbishop of Canterbury)
* The Parish of the Falkland Islands
* The Lusitanian Catholic Apostolic Evangelical Church (Igreja Lusitana Católica Apostólica Evangélica), Portugal
* The Spanish Reformed Episcopal Church (Iglesia Española Reformada Episcopal), Spain
