But the basic identity of the Anglican Church is that it is the established Church of England. Anywhere else, it's essentially the English Church outside England.
That's not my experience. The ECUSA for example has a strong identity of its own: National Cathedral, liturgical worship, liberalism in women's and LGBT issues.
The Anglican Church in South Africa also has its own identity, through its history of white Anglo-Catholics and educated Coloureds and Blacks fighting Apartheid together.
The Church of Nigeria, the largest Anglican local church, through its conservative, biblical style, but with liturgical elements, missionary zeal, opposition to Islam...
The Church of Ireland as being of English origin, but trying to present itself in continuity to the old Irish church of St. Patrick, trying to stay neutral in the Roman Catholic-Protestant conflicts, while at the same time welcoming enormous numbers of disappointed Roman Catholics.
The Scottish Episcopal Church, as the middle ground between papism and presbyterianism, and of course considering itself to be the most Scottish church, only true heir of the pre-refrmation church in Scotland, through its chain of apostolic succession.
The Episcopal churches of Spain and Portugal, founded in protest over Vatican I, but with evangelical elements trhough the support they received from "low church" Anglicans.
