Welcome to our SEARCH home page – and a quick rundown of what we at this Church of Ireland Journal aim to provide: a good mix of church and faith-related articles to stimulate discussion and fresh thinking in Ireland and beyond. The articles from now on will mostly be shorter than before and easier on the eye with our new graphic design. No dumbing-down here, but no space for “waffle” either!  And jargon is banned, because SEARCH is for everybody.

As well as inviting articles from key figures in Ireland and around the world, as editor I welcome unsolicited submissions also.  These can cover current issues in Church and society, reflections on faith and mission, biblical directives and challenges, historical and cultural themes, personal testimonies – and a few other things you might suggest. Contributors will not necessarily be Anglicans, or even Christians, but if Anglican we hope they will reflect the full breadth of our tradition.

On this website you will find Facebook and Twitter to enable feed-back and discussion; also full details of the current issue, our editorial team, our history, and an archive of earlier issues. Postage-paid subscription details are here too. Do please subscribe, enjoy the read, and get in touch with your comments.
