The Prayer Book Society is looking forward
to the launch of its completely redesigned magazine
The Anglican Way
which has been slightly delayed
      but will be available soon !
This important development has been a major project that has taken much time and effort.
The first new-look edition will explore just what comprises Classical Anglicanism and further news of this
will be sent out shortly.

In the meantime, it is intended to continue to offer
further resources
for prayer and reflection
in these challenging days
