Launching Marsden's Mission

lmmLaunching Marsden's Mission: The Beginnings of the Church Missionary Society in New Zealand, viewed from New South Wales edited by Peter G Bolt and David B Pettett

In 1794 the Rev Samuel Marsden became the second Chaplain to the Colony of New South Wales. Both Marsden and the first Chaplain, the Rev Richard Johnson, came to the Colony under the sponsorship of the Church of England Evangelicals. They had high hopes that New South Wales would be the base from which the ‘everlasting gospel’ would sound forth to achieve the salvation of the ‘poor benighted heathens’ of the South Seas. To this end Marsden began the mission to New Zealand on Christmas Day, 1814. As the senior chaplain in New South Wales Marsden’s interest in the Maori people began in 1805 when chief Te Pahi from the Bay of Islands visited Sydney. Marsden developed close relationships with Te Pahi and later his nephew, Ruatara.

Divine Allurement

LB16Divine Allurement: Cranmer's Comfortable Words by Ashley Null

Because justification by faith emphasized personal faith, persuasion was important to the Protestant Reformers. The verb ‘allure’ was thus closely connected with their expression of the Gospel, and this is reflected in the liturgy of the Book of Common Prayer.

A Fruitful Exhortation

af06A Fruitful Exhortation: A Guide to the Homilies by Gerald Bray.

Along with the Thirty-nine Articles, the Book of Common Prayer and the Ordinal, the two books of Homilies form part of the constitutive documents of the Church of England and are therefore of considerable importance for understanding both its history and its doctrine. But whereas the others are well-known and easily obtainable, the Homilies remain relatively obscure.

Having said that, there is still much in the Homilies that is of great value and it would be a pity to lose that because of the formidable difficulties involved in tackling the original texts today.

This Guide therefore aims to provide modern readers and students with a bridge that will help them gain access to what the Homilies teach and adapt them to modern usage and circumstances. Each homily is outlined according to its own internal divisions and themes, and extracts from them are provided in italics.

Instruction in the Way of the Lord

af07Instruction in the Way of the Lord: A Guide to the Cathechism in the Book of Common Prayer by Martin Davie.

The celebration of the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer has helped to stimulate a renewed interest in its teaching and fundamental contribution to Anglican identity. Archbishop Cranmer and others involved in the English Reformation knew well that the content and shape of the services and doctrine set out in the Prayer Book were vital ways of teaching congregations biblical truth and the principles of the Christian gospel.

However, the Prayer Book Catechism is a neglected educational resource for the Church of England. For centuries it provided the framework for instructing young Christians in the basics of Christian belief and behaviour, but in recent years it has come to be almost forgotten.

Till Death Us Do Part

Till Death Us Do PartTill Death Us Do Part: "The Solemnization of Matrimony" in the Book of Common Prayer by Simon Vibert.

The celebration of the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer has helped to stimulate a renewed interest in its teaching and fundamental contribution to Anglican identity. Archbishop Cranmer and others involved in the English Reformation knew well that the content and shape of the services and doctrine set out in the Prayer Book were vital ways of teaching congregations biblical truth and the principles of the Christian gospel.

 

In the Marriage Service we find, encapsulated in rich language, the reformed theology of
Christian marriage, shaped by the Bible.

British Values and the National Church

ls19 2British Values and the National Church: Essays on Church and State from 1964-2014 edited by David Holloway

'The religious traditions of Great Britain are in the main Christian'. So says the law of the land, but recent crises are exposing the vulnerability of those traditions to the manipulation of those with other agendas.

Canon Max Warren’s three lectures on ‘The Functions of a National Church’ were delivered in 1963. At the time, he was ahead of many of his colleagues in his thinking about the role of the Church of England. Warren’s insightful lectures offer much material for discussion. In the first edition of this study (The Functions of a National Church by Max Warren and Raymond Johnston) the three lectures were accompanied by an introduction by Raymond Johnston regarding the theological basis for a National Church; in this second edition, David Holloway follows the trajectory up to the present day with a discussion of 'British Values'.
