The uniqueness of worship in the Anglican Church has often made the first timers, the young persons and children loose interest in attending its worship services. It is revealing to note that though older Anglicans may not have lost interest in Anglican worship, some
of them have continued in the Church with alot of voiced and unvoiced questions about certain aspects of the worship rites. In one
parish, a few months into my work there, one of the respectable and educated members remarked “Vicar, we are born and bred Anglicans but we do not know the meaning and significance of some of the things we do here in the Anglican Church, please teach us.”
Within the period of my ministry in the parish, I taught the parishioners some aspects of Anglicanism. Many of those who received my teachings on Anglicanism became more interested in the studies and that greatly improved their commitment and participation in the ministry of the Church.
What is the interest in this book? The interest is simply to present an explanation of morning worship in the Anglican Church that is not too academic, yet of benefit to children in the Anglican Children Ministry (ACM), the Girls Guild (GG), the Anglican Youth
Fellowship (A YF), Primary and Secondary Schools, Anglican Students Fellowship (ASF)in the Tertiary Institutions, Women and Men’s Organizations in the Church, Seminarians, Clergy and indeed all those who desire to know more about morning worship rites of the Anglican Church.
The book is catechetical in content; and will bridge the widening gap in the Anglican catechesis. It is expected to satisfy the interest and also assist those worshipping or joining the Church to adjust as fast as they can through understanding the mode of corporate morning worship in the Anglican Church. This understanding will in turn positively affect their commitment to the worship of God in the Anglican way.
