The Anglican Church in Florence

The Anglican Church here dates back almost two centuries, with the first chaplaincy established in 1840 with the quiet opening of Holy Trinity Church, serving non-Italian members of the Church of England only. After Italy’s unification, people were able to worship freely, and the congregation erected the Holy Trinity building in Via Lamarmora. Today, St. Mark’s is the sole Church of England congregation in Florence, and forms a chaplaincy with congregations in Siena and Bologna.
