The Book of Common Prayer

The Book of Common Prayer (BCP) is the official book of worship of the Episcopal Church. The BCP provides liturgical forms, prayers, and instructions so that all members and orders of the Episcopal Church may appropriately share in common worship.

There are multiple copies in every pew at St. Thomas and those new to Episcopalian services can follow along during any service. Our bulletin, handed out before service, includes the page numbers in the BCP.
