Welcome to the web site for the Peterborough diocesan branch of Forward In Faith. We exist to support the Society of St Wilfrid & St Hilda in upholding and expressing the Catholic faith in the Church of England, and encourage men and women of all ages who value that inheritance to join us. But you certainly don’t have to be a member of FiF to come to a service or an event sponsored by the Society – everyone is welcome.

We value tradition but are forward-looking and seek to be a good model for generous disagreement within the Church. We hold fast to the faith once delivered to the saints and received by the Universal Church while reaching out to other Christians of differing convictions and seeking ways of mutual cooperation wherever they may be found. Don’t hesitate to get in touch on any aspect of our witness.

Why join Forward in Faith in the Diocese of Peterborough?

At present in the Diocese of Peterborough four parishes are formally affiliated to Forward in Faith, but there are many isolated individuals, scattered across the diocese, who share our views and aspirations.

Some worship in parishes that already have a woman incumbent; many others are in parishes where the majority do not accept that there is a problem about women bishops, either because they do not understand the scriptural and historical objections, or choose to ignore them.

By joining Forward in Faith you will be among kindred spirits and will receive the prayers and support of those whose views you share.

You will also:
receive regular news of national and local FiF activities. These include an annual Chrism Mass, Patronal Festivals, Pilgrimages to Walsingham, Social Events, the National Assembly and many more.
be eligible to attend, and to propose and vote on resolutions at the Annual General Meeting.
add to our steadily growing numbers, further strengthening our cause and ensuring that the Church of England makes adequate provision for us.
