1662 Book of Common Prayer

by on March 21, 2010

Mission A few of us started mission with a quick brekky at Maccas before attending the 8:15am Holy Communion service at St Philps York St. This was the first I had attended a tradional Anglican church service and I actually thoroughly enjoyed it. The service followed the 1662 Book of Common Prayer and I found the hymns and the language in the book very rich and edifying.

After the service I had a great chat with John Cowper who is the 5th generation of William Cowper who was the founding minister that built St Philips. He explained that the 1662 Book of Common Prayer was written by Cranmer out of the 15 Century reformation and has been used by the Anglican Church since it’s inception.

During morning tea we had wonderful conversations with the elderly congregation who all share a great love for the prayer book for it’s reformed theology and communication of the gospel.
