Prayer Book Services

When the Church of England was established during the Reformation, Thomas Cranmer wrote a new prayer book in 1549 which he revised in 1552. The first 100 years of the Church of England were somewhat turbulent, but in 1662 Cranmer’s Prayer Book was accepted as the official Prayer Book of the country. It is this 1662 prayer book which we refer to as the Book of Common Prayer.


The beauty of the prose, and some of the magnificent prayers, has meant that this book is one of the most important in the English language, and generations of churchgoers have grown up with it. For members of the Church of England it is the defining text as to what it is to be an Anglican. Some people find that the familiarity of the words helps them to pray in a more profound way. Others find the language a stumbling block in their worship. For those who love it we have a number of prayer book services in our churches.
