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.We aim to ensure that our articles are as concise as the subject matter allows, attractively presented and accessible to non-specialists.. 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.

THE ARCHBISHOPS of the Church of Ireland lead this issue of SEARCH for the simple reason that both Dublin and Armagh have been engaged in boundary-breaking activity of late. While being equally busy on the ecumenical scene internationally, Archbishop Jackson has been bridge- building at home, encouraging the Church to engage with preparation for The World Meeting of Families, to be attended by Pope Francis here in August. He hopes that many parishes will join in reflection on family issues with their Catholic neighbours as the year unfolds.
