The Anglican church has long had a presence in Flanders . Already in the 16th and 17th centuries, there were several Anglican religious communities on the territory of what is now Belgium. The Anglican church was then recognised by the Belgian government in 1870. Over the course of the years, the history of Anglicanism has left its mark among what we call 'heritage'.

Heritage can be both tangible and intangible and even more recent Anglican communities are constantly 'producing' heritage in the form of stories, traditions or documents. It is important to take good care of a faith community's heritage. After all, heritage helps to tell a community's story to future generations; it says something about who we are and where we come from.
