The Church of Vryland (Afrikaans: Kerk van Vryland, Scots: Kirk o Vryland) is the officially-established Anglican church of Vryland. The primate has the title of Archbishop of Boardman, although the monarch is the Supreme Governor. Its jurisdiction covers the territory of Vryland, but it is not officially recognised by the Anglican Communion.

The Church of Vryland is one of many churches within the Anglican Communion. Although it is the only officially recognised religious denomination in Vryland, the majority of people in Vryland do not belong to it. The church describes itself as "Anglican" and mainly follows the Anglican Communion although it is not officially in communion with it.

The Church of Vryland is one of two religious institutions to be recognised by the Government of Vryland, the other being the Celtic Catholic Church.
