The Church of Bangladesh is a church of the Anglican Communion in Bangladeshmarker. It is in fact a united church, having been formed by the union of various Christian churches in the region.

The Church of Bangladesh came into being as the outcome of the separation from Pakistan. This initially started as a movement which focused on language and finally took shape through the liberation war in 1971 which created a free and independent Bangladesh. The Synod of the Church of Pakistan on 30 April 1974-declared and endorsed a free and independent status for the Church of Bangladesh.

The Church of Bangladesh brings together the Anglican and English Presbyterian Churches. Here it is worth mentioning the contribution of the many devotees and missionarieswho gave their labour and endured all kind of trouble to proclaim the Good News and thus established congregations in different parts of the country and especially in its remotest villages.

Following the creation of independent Church of Bangladesh, efforts were made to increase local leadership. The Rt. Rev. B. D. Mondal was consecrated as the first national bishop of Dhaka Diocese in 1975. He tried to follow the path of Bishop Blair, by encouraging the active participation of lay leaders from all sections of the church congregations. After the creation of the Synod, Rt. Rev. B. D. Mondal became the first moderator of the Church of Bangladesh and Rt. Rev. Michael S. Baroi the deputy moderator. At the time of Rt. Rev. B. D. Mondal's retirement, a new bishop was elected, and in January 2003 Rt. Rev. Paul S. Sarkar became the third national bishop of the Church of Bangladesh.
