Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka

THE ANGLICAN COMMUNION grew through English colonisation and missionary work. Although it has historically been largest in former British colonies, it has a strong presence throughout the world. See our "notes on structure" page.

The Churches of Bangladesh, North India, Pakistan and South India are United Churches formed by unions of Anglicans and Christians of other traditions. All four are full members of the Anglican Communion.

The Church of South India includes one diocese (Jaffna) in Sri Lanka. The reminder of the island comprises the two dioceses of the Church of Ceylon (Sri Lanka) which is extraprovincial under the Archbishop of Canterbury.
