Broad church

Broad church

a portion of the Church of England, consisting of persons who claim to hold a position, in respect to doctrine and fellowship, intermediate between the high Church party and the low Church, or evangelical, party. The term has been applied to otherbodies of men holding liberal or comprehensive views of Christian doctrine and fellowship. Side by side with these various shades of high and low Church, another party of a different character has always existed in the Church of England. It is called by different names: Moderate, Catholic, or broad church, by its friends; latitudinarian or indifferent, by its enemies. Its distinctive character is the desire of comprehension. Its watch words are charity and toleration. (Conybeare)
