    Members of the communities listed here have chosen to express their Christian faith and commitment through sharing their lives and finances, at least to some extent.

    Christian Communities vary in style and in social and theological approach. It is unlikely that anyone would be happy with all those listed here! Some of them may be similar to other Christian Communities, but most of them will be quite different.

    We have tried to include communities which see themselves (and others) as Christian, and which others see as Christian.
