Cranmer and the Lord's Supper

[Cross+Way] 30 Oct 2009--Through his liturgy Thomas Cranmer sought to reform the Church under the Word of God. He did not abandon all that had gone before but endeavoured to take what had become corrupted and transform it in accordance with the plain teaching of scripture.

In some places this meant small changes, in others dramatic. The key features of the 1552 Communion Service (in effect the Book of Common Prayer and the backbone of Common Worship Order 2 in Contemporary Language)were all derived from the teaching of scripture.
