Resolution 78

The Anglican Communion - The Book of Common Prayer

  1. The Conference holds that the Book of Common Prayer has been, and is, so strong a bond of unity throughout the whole Anglican Communion that great care must be taken to ensure that revisions of the Book shall be in accordance with the doctrine and accepted liturgical worship of the Anglican Communion.
  2. The Conference urges that special services of thanksgiving be held in 1949 throughout the whole Anglican Communion to commemorate the English Books of Common Prayer, of which the first was published in 1549.
