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.

Sermon Series on Thirty-nine Articles: St. Andrews Anglican, Mt. Pleasant, SC

The Rev. Mr. Steve Wood has announced a sermon series on The Thirty-nine Articles at his church, St. Andrews Anglican, Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina.  If Reformation Anglican was near  Rev. Wood's church?  We would be attending.  What Anglican Church do you know that is conducting such inquiries?  Although in the Anglican exile, one must continue to shine in the darkness.

We continue to vet blogsite, books, and leaders, insofar as we are able.  Here's an encouraging post by Rev. Wood.

As a part of of our ongoing series on the 39 Articles, we welcome this week The Rev’d Dr. Peter Moore. Peter will be addressing Articles 6 & 7 in a sermon entitled, “Scripture: God Speaks.”
The sermon audio and video will be available on our site by Sunday afternoon.
You can also keep up with our sermons via our mobile app or as a podcast available from the iTunes store.


Here’s the intial announcement by Rev. Wood with an outline of the series at:  Here's what Rev. Wood says:

This Sunday we kick off a sermon series working our way through the Thirty-Nine Articles. We’ve broken the sermons down into a series of mini-series that address the Articles thematically.

A series on the 39 articles - Heavens! A heady, ambitious, and honourable undertaking - many thanks for the link.

That the sermons come from the church in which I was married (and from the chap who married us) is a happy coincidence!
