1662 BCP Services Favoured by 35s and Under
Daily services taken from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer (International Version) has a decidedly young audience profile. Sixty-percent of those listening are 35 and younger. This goes against the prevailing opinion of the accessibility to such in British church circles.
The @1662Pod podcast originates from Connersville, Indiana’s Trinity Anglican Church. Weekday services of Morning and Evening Prayer along with Holy Communion on Sunday are available live or via the podcast or the parish’s Facebook page.
The Rector, the Revd Richard R. Tarsitano, moved to Connersville to re-plant the Anglican work in a former Episcopal Church USA building. The Episcopal congregation had grown increasingly liberal before ceasing to exist a number of years ago. Before moving to Indiana, Tarsitano and his young family had served for a number of years in Florida.
Connersville, Indiana is a former industrial manufacturing town located about an hour southeast of the state capital of Indianapolis in the midst of the Corn Belt.
The parish uses the 1662 Book of Common Prayer (International Version) published by Inter-Varsity Press and the Authorised Version of the Bible in all its services.
