The Community of the Sisters of the Church was founded in England in 1870. The Community pioneered work in Christian education, child care, social welfare and mission work. By the mid-1890's the Sisters had established work throughout England and in Canada, Burma, India, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Eventually Provinces were established: the UK Province, the Canadian Province, the Australian Province and the Solomon Islands Province. By 1989 all institutional works, schools and children's homes world-wide had been given up or handed over to others and new ways of service and ministry continue to be explored. In 2018, Marguerite Mae Eamon, was the first Canadian sister elected to be Mother Superior of the Community of the Sisters of the Church worldwide.
Today the life of prayer and worship continues to be the foundation and from that evolves ministries of hospitality, spiritual direction, informal educational work such as facilitating retreats and workshops, preaching, teaching Sunday School and Christian clowning. Sisters, lay and ordained, also work in parishes, or as hospital or prison chaplains. It also directs and administers the registered charity, Church Extension Association, Inc.
