Welcome To The Prayer Book Society
The Prayer Book Society was formed to promote and preserve the use of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer-the traditional service book of the Church of England containing the Church's historic beliefs and its official standard of doctrine.
2012 marks the 350th anniversary of this remarkable book, which has shaped the worship and doctrine of the Church of England and the Global Anglican Communion, and remains the cornerstone of Anglican identity. It is hoped that this anniversary year will encourage those who may not be familiar with the Book of Common Prayer, or who have not used it for some time, to explore its pages.
The Society works to ensure that the historic Prayer Book continues to be available to future generations, and seeks to introduce it to young people, ordinands and PCCs throughout the Church of England. There are sister Societies in many parts of the Anglican Communion.
