Christianisation

The Church's story in England began with the advent of a mission from Rome, in the year 596, when Saint Augustine of Canterbury arrived in Kent and established the Roman tradition. In 633, another mission arrived in the north of England and established a Celtic tradition there. By mid-7th century, most of the pagan Anglo-Saxons had been converted to Christianity.
