St. James utilizes the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) to guide its worship services. The BCP is a bible-based collection of related prayer books used by the Anglican, Episcopal and other churches. The original book first published in 1549 was a product of the Church of England following the break with the Catholic Church in Rome, and contained the complete forms of service for daily and Sunday worship in English. The BCP contains Old and New Testament readings as well as Morning and Evening Prayers, the Litany, Holy Communion, the orders for Baptism, Confirmation, Marriage, Funeral and other services. The BCP also contains the Collects, Psalms, the Epistle and Gospel readings as well as biblical canticles and readings for the Sunday Communion Service. The BCP has undergone various revisions over the last 460+ years, but has remained the official prayer book of the Church of England and is used around the world in over 150 languages. Traditional Lutheran, Methodist and Presbyterian prayer books have borrowed from the Book of Common Prayer and the marriage and burial rites have found their way into those of other denominations, the King James Bible and the works of Shakespeare as well as many words and phrases have entered into our common English language.
