'The Book of Common Prayer (BCP; also known as the Prayer Book) is the traditional service book of the Church of England, and is central to its faith. Compiled in the sixteenth century by Thomas Cranmer, and modified in 1662, the Prayer Book remains at the heart of our worship, and is the official doctrinal standard of the Church of England, as well as of most other Churches in the worldwide Anglican Communion.'

'The Strict Baptist Historical Society was formed in 1960 to promote an interest in the history and stand for Scriptural truth maintained (through God’s grace) by Strict Baptists; and also to bring into being a central repository where books, documents and other things of historical interest connected directly or indirectly with the rise and growth of Strict Baptists may be preserved for the benefit of present and future generations, in the fervent hope that the project will be for the glory of God and the good of His people.'  Organize an Annual Lecture, usually in the Spring.
