Worship & The 1928 Book of Common Prayer

If you've ever visited an Episcopal or Anglican church, or if you're an Anglican

yourself, you know the weight we place on worship. Not only do we adhere to

historic, reformed doctrine and to traditional discipline, we also take worship

seriously. In the act of corporate worship, we seek to glorify God and bring

honor to His name through the reading of His Word, prayer, and the singing of

traditional hymns.

Our worship is marked by the Book of Common Prayer (1928 revision), which

calls for beauty and simplicity in worship. Scripture stands at the center of

traditional Episcopal worship; the Prayer Book is filled with Biblical passages

and prayers crafted on a knowledge of Scripture. In an age when "any prayer

book will do," and when worship is defined more by human pleasure than by the

pursuit of God's glory, we humbly seek to worship God in Spirit and in truth by

keeping to the 1928 BCP and following its rubrics.

Primarily, though, we seek to honor our majestic Lord, and to do so decently and

in order, as St. Paul admonishes Christians.

“Let all things be done decently and in order.” — 1 Corinthians 14:40
