Reformed Churchmen

We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F. Pollard's "Thomas Cranmer and the English Reformation: 1489-1556" at: February 2015: Jaspar Ridley's "Thomas Cranmer" at:

No author. “Philip Edgcumbe Hughes.”  The Church Society.  N.d.  Accessed 26 May 2014.

Philip Edgcumbe Hughes was Secretary of Church Society from 1953 to 1956.

PHILIP EDGCUMBE HUGHES was an Anglican clergyman and scholar whose life spanned four continents: Australia, where he was born, South Africa, England, where he was ordained, and the USA, where he died in 1990, aged 75. From 1947 to 1953 he taught at Tyndale Hall, Bristol; for the next three years he was Secretary of Church Society; in 1959 he became editor of the Churchman and continued in that role with great distinction till 1967; but in 1964 he had moved to the United States and thereafter taught in American Seminaries, including Westminster Theological Seminary. In theology, he was a firm Calvinist, but had the breadth of sympathies of a true scholar. His writings are solid in substance and graceful in style. One of them, The Theology of the English Reformers, has recently been republished by Horseradish of Abingdon PA. (Churchman114/4)
