The main religion in Britain is Christianity. Most Christians belong to the Church of England or the Church of Scotland. These are Protestant Churches. There are also many Roman Catholics.

Who is the head of the Church of England?

The Queen (the British Monarch) is 'Supreme Governor of the Church of England'.
