St Peter's is a corporate member of the Prayer Book Society, which exists to promote the use of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer in our worship, teaching and devotions. The 1662 Book of Common Prayer has provided the liturgical and doctrinal backbone of the Church of England for nearly five centuries, being itself a revision of the first English Prayer Books of the early 16th Century. It sets forth the catholic faith and worship of the Church in the majestic and memorable prose of Thomas Cranmer. The regular use of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer produces tenacious and faithful Christians through its depth of spirituality. It answers the needs of the soul for it speaks throughout of the Holy Scripture, by which the soul is nourished. There is a dignity and reverence to the language of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer which is proper to the worship of Almighty God. The 1662 Book of Common Prayer is the gold standard for worship and belief both in the Church of England and throughout the Anglican Communion. It has been translated into 150 languages and is used in 50 countries.
