NOW BUSINESSES JOIN CHURCHES AS CORPORATE MEMBERS

26th October 2017

A publisher of bespoke books is the first UK business to be signed up as a corporate member of the Prayer Book Society which has launched a drive to expand interest in The Book of Common Prayer beyond Anglican churches and their worshippers.

Gresham Books, based on the Isle of Wight, specialises in the production of bespoke books for schools, colleges and churches as well as related products like choir music folders embossed with a crest or logo.

‘The shared interests of the Prayer Book Society (PBS) and Gresham Books became evident when both exhibited at this year’s SCALA (School Chaplains & Leaders Association) Conference in Liverpool attended by 150 school chaplains,’ reports John Service, the PBS clergy and churches coordinator.

‘In the past six years our corporate membership has grown by more than 40 per cent and includes 85 churches. Now we are keen to expand membership to include other organisations which are supportive of our work.’

The PBS encourages rediscovery and use of the majesty and spiritual depth of The Book of Common Prayer at the heart of the Church of England’s worship.

Gresham’s managing director Nick Oulton, who is a churchwarden at his local parish church, commented: ‘I love the language of The Book of Common Prayer and am encouraged by the way it is regaining its popularity among young ordinands as well as teenagers representing their schools through the PBS’s annual Cranmer Awards competition.’
