Presentation to Prudence Dailey

In September 2020, Prudence Dailey stepped down after fourteen outstanding years as Chairman of the Prayer Book Society. Owing to the extension of COVID-19 restrictions, it has sadly not been possible until now for members and friends to gather to celebrate her remarkable service to the Society.  

The Trustees very much hope you will join them for a long-awaited afternoon of celebration and thanksgiving to be held at Pusey House, Oxford, at 3.30pm on Saturday, 4 September.

The celebrations will include afternoon tea and a presentation to Prudence and will conclude with Evensong at 5.00pm. All are welcome.

Online Streaming of BCP Services

During the first national lockdown of 2020, many clergy, lay ministers and musicians began streaming BCP services online. This online provision proved incredibly valuable and happily many cathedrals, parish churches and college chapels have continued to stream their services via Facebook, YouTube and Zoom.

Far be it from me to promote a cult of quaintness, but the power of the Prayer Book to connect with many of those who find the ordinary diet of the church banal, should not be ignored. There is now a younger generation who are realising afresh the importance of complementing the argot of Twitter and SMS with the majesty of Cranmer.

The Prayer Book Society offers fellowship and encouragement to lovers of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer (BCP), both clergy and laity, spanning a great breadth of age, background, tradition and churchmanship. We:

  • Work with theological training institutions to encourage the teaching and use of the BCP;
  • Supply a copy of the BCP to every Church of England ordinand entering training;
  • Provide training for ordinands and clergy, both online and in person, at national and diocesan level;
  • Provide information and support to clergy and laity wishing to use the Prayer Book for baptisms, weddings and funerals, as well as in regular worship;
  • Publish regular magazines, which are sent free of charge to all our members, and to senior clergy and other Church leaders;
  • Provide opportunities for mutual support and encouragement for clergy, ordinands and others involved in ministry who have a particular interest in the BCP;
  • Help clergy to find posts in parishes which make significant use of the BCP, and help such parishes to find suitable clergy;
  • Run the Cranmer Awards, a prestigious national competition for young people aged 11 - 18 to introduce them to the BCP;
  • Hold local and national events, including a popular Annual Conference, enabling our members to make contact with like-minded people.
