"LAST CHANCE LITURGY" 2:30 PM every Sunday at Christ United Methodist Church, Birdsboro, Pennsylvania.
We are blessed at St. Raphael's Anglican Mission to use the traditional Book of Common Prayer (1928) and such other worship supplements as are consistent with the same.
This worship has been described as:
~ Evangelical: proclaiming the saving doctrines of the gospel.
~ Reformed: returned to ancient and scriptural simplicity of worship.
~ Orthodox: consistent with the right teaching of the seven councils of christendom.
~ Catholic: according to the whole counsel of scripture everywhere known in the creeds, and true to the doctrine, and discipline established by bishops "rightly dividing the word of truth" all the way back to the Apostles.
Our worship is blended with components of other Anglican traditions besides the American Book of Common Prayer. For example, features of the Anglican Missal are used. An abbreviated litany from the Scottish Episcopal Book of Common Prayer (1929) is sometimes used. Also an alternate form of evening prayer from the Church of Ireland's Book of Common Prayer (1926) is used occasionally for "Celtic Evensong" especially on St. Patrick's Day and similar feasts. Finally, the closing portion of the Kenyan Book of Common Prayer is utilized since there are congregants at St. Raphael's from the Kenyan Church.
