Top 500 Winner

Tied for 7th highest ranked website in the world.
Ranked #1 of all religious resources on the Internet.

"Anglicans Online! isn't so much a religious site as it is a living, breathing, weekly Web publication. . . . The site is a delight to travel, with its easy system of links from section to section and from idea to idea. It feels like you're reading a well-organized Web magazine instead of having to wade through the disorder that characterizes so many Web sites. . . . This is the one that sets the standard for religious sites."
I-Way Magazine - March 1996


Four Stars. (Highest possible rating.)
Magellan Internet Index

"The editors have reviewed your home page for our "Top 5% of the Web" catalog. . . the best, sharpest, and funniest home pages on the World Wide Web."
Point Survey

NetGuide Gold Site

"These churchgoers are pretty congenial, plus they have a sense of humour."
NetGuide Magazine - October 1995

This is one among a number of "unofficial" sites put up by people of various denominations at their own expense and without official backing by the church. In this case it's Tod Maffin, putting this site together during his free time on Friday and Saturday evenings, and in so doing, leading the church kicking and screaming into the information age.
ARIL/Cross Currents

"The largest and most comprehensive resource on the Internet for Anglicans and Episcopalians worldwide."
Yahoo! Unplugged
