When was the Anglican church built?

The modern Anglican Communion of churches has a very long history which began soon after the time of Christ, when the first churches were planted in England. These churches were independent of Rome, and were known as 'Celtic' churches.
However, for a long period (about 600AD to 1536AD) the churches in England were ruled by the Popes of the Roman Catholic church. This rule was rejected in the time of Henry VIII, and since then the Church of England has been independent again.

The word 'Anglican' really just means 'English', and it came into use as just another way to describe the Church of England. However, many denominations in other countries were planted by English Anglicans, and are now part of the worldwide 'Anglican Communion.'
