Greetings! WikiProject Christianity was formed in 2006 to better organize information in articles related to Christianity. This page and its sub-pages contain links and information about the project. This project's goal is to help focus and coordinate the efforts of Wikipedians on Christianity related topics, and increase article quality and coverage.

As a group, we do not prefer any particular tradition or denomination of Christianity, but endeavor that all Christian traditions are fairly and accurately represented. The project now includes a wide range of articles on multiple denominations.

The project noticeboard can be used to make suggestions to, or seek the help and opinion of other project members. Adding it to your watchlist will keep you informed of Christianity related events. If you'd like to join and become a part of this project, simply sign the Membership Page. To receive our Ichthus newsletter, just add your name to the list here.
