Head of the Church

I noticed the Newspaper Headlines recently.
I didn't stop to read the paper but the headline spoke about the Queen possibly no longer being Head of the Church.


No offence to Her Majesty, because I am not anti-Monarchy, but surely God is the Head of the Church?

As I once said to the Bishop, I am confused by the CofE  because the head of the Church should be God, but in the Case of the CofE, they have: God - presumably, and the Queen, and the Archbishop, and 10 Downing Street, etc.


  1. Henry VIII was "Supreme Head of the Church of England" - by his own declaration. Elizabeth I very wisely downgraded that to "Supreme Governor of the Church of England".

  2. Thank you Tony. The paper definitely said 'Head' And I have heard her referred to as 'Head' of the Church so many times.
    Thank you for pointing this out.
