Welcome

The Prayer Book Tradition— A place to belong, a Faith to believe, and a Rule of life and worship.

We Need Your Help to continue our work!
The Society is continuing to expand its work substantially both here and overseas. We have now undertaken
  • our second Annual Conference and and are now even beginning to plan the next one from 14-16th February 2019 in Savannah so please save the date!
  • several one day colloquia on key issues ranging from Liturgical Revision, Marriage and most recently Apologetics looking at God and Science
  • work in Tanzania which has reached thousands of young people and where we plan a new edition of the classic Kiswhahili Prayer Book
  • a complete new volume of Catechesis to teach the faith in Parishes entitled: I am His has been made available
  • and a number of parish visits are in the planning stage and we welcome invitations to send a speaker for such events...
  • an expanding archive of past editions of the Anglican Way and the writings of the Revd. Dr. Peter Toon the former President of the Society.

All this has taken major investment, so there could be no better time to donate in support of our future work !

Is the Prayer Book Evangelistic ? 
Can a church that uses
one of the classical Prayer Books
(England 1662, USA 1928, Canada 1962)
fulfill the Great Commission
to “make disciples of all nations”?
By the Rev. Gavin Dunbar
It is a mark of our time that many Anglican and Episcopalian Christians would answer these questions in the negative. The Prayer Book may be good for some things – but not evangelism. So runs the current wisdom. So prevalent is this view, that even many Prayer Book Episcopalians share it!
Reflecting on the three legged stool of the Anglican via media…
Upholding a real Anglican continuity
from Richard Hooker
to Charles Gore and beyond….
A.M-R
It is striking that Richard Hooker is so often spoken of by Anglicans even though there is often a want of attention to what exactly he actually said…..
Missing from the news:
The story of militant Fulani
attacks on Christians in Nigeria
Since 2001, the Africa Center for Strategic Studies has estimated that up to 60,000 Nigerian have been killed in violence between Fulani herdsmen and farmers.
And on another note…..
After Labor Day
as a small divertissement….
Reflecting lightly upon the ecclesial feline phenomenon….
The subject and domain of the cat is dangerous, even though it be a common one in the life of churches. In large part this is consequent upon the very strong but deeply divergent views that the cat can arouse

What We Do

The Society exists to promote Anglican belief and worship as expressed in the Common Prayer tradition and Angli­can formularies since the first Book of Common Prayer of 1549, in the Church of England, and on through the 1928 Prayer Book down to the present day: worship is at the heart of Chris­tianity and the Common Prayer tradition is at the heart of Anglican worship.
