    Join the Catholic club, it's got a better sense of community.

    You could always mix and match and be Anglo-Catholic

    Is it really bad that I instantly read that in a Terminator voice?

    What are your views on eucharist? And salvation theology?

    Um, eat bread and drink wine to remember Jesus and his sacrifice.

    A final touch by Jesus ...

    "And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together (folded) in a place by itself." (John 20:7)

    A folded napkin had to do with the Master and Servant, and every Jewish boy knew this tradition.
    When the servant set the dinner table for the master, he made sure that it was exactly the way the master wanted it..
    The table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just out of sight, until the master had finished eating, and the servant would not dare touch that table, until the master was finished. Now, if the master were done eating, he would rise from the table, wipe his fingers, his mouth, and clean his beard, and would screw up that napkin and toss it onto the table, like we do in McD's or wherever.
    The servant would then know to clear the table. For in those days, the crumpled napkin meant, "I'm done".
    But if the master got up from the table, and folded his napkin, and laid it beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table, because........... The folded napkin meant, "I'm coming back!"

    You'd be welcomed! Most churches have people on the doors to welcome you, and you can say that you're just thinking about faith so they can show you where to sit, or find you someone to sit with to explain the service etc. I know it can be intimidating but churches love nothing more than welcoming new people, you'd be making their day!

    That'd point more towards CofE, but of course the best thing is to go and see for yourself in your local church, as grownupfrog says

    ah i see, you can try Vineyard church, i go to one in portsmouth during term time and they are very much involving with feed to poor and outreach ministry with healing on the streets and their cooking for the poor but i'm not sure if that's the same at all places but do just visit many different places until you feel comfortable and that God has led you there
    Vineyard are great. Most of the lively and growing churches have a variety of community/outreach work going on.

    I'm thinking about getting into religion again. I'm not sure to be honest because I don't feel that there's a church out there that has my ethics. I guess i'll just read a bit of the bible and go from there.
    The bible's a great place to get reconnected again to God

    Points more to Anglicanism, as has been said

    Don't feel shy or weird! I understand it can be daunting but honestly most churchgoers are lovely and will do their best to make you feel at home. Not sure about Anglican churches but in all Catholic churches there should be Mass cards/booklets telling you what to say and when, and when to kneel/stand/sit, so tiz all quite straightforward
