W 188 Baptism and Holy Communion in the Methodist and the United Reformed Church

The ‘Free’ churches have been as much affected by liturgical revision as has the Church of England. This study, a follow-up to the earlier booklet on the same subject, looks at the impact of this in the Methodist Church and URC.

It explores the tensions between historic convictions and ecumenical consensus, and compares the theology and shape of services with Anglican rites. It will be a helpful manual for LEPs and other ecumenical contexts.
