The Salisbury branch organises a programme of meetings throughout the year across the Salisbury Diocese. These range from Garden Parties to Visiting Speakers and our Annual Advent Carol Service.
Each year the Society organises a conference at which members can meet to encourage one another and hear from theologians, academics and others who value the BCP.
The Cranmer Awards offer an opportunity for youngsters aged between 11 and 18 to encounter the BCP and learn something of its rich history and foundational role in the the Church of England and the English language.
An annual public speaking competition in which young people aged between 11 and 18 compete in reciting passages from the Book of Common Prayer.

Membership of the Society is open to all who are in sympathy with our aims. The suggested annual subscription is £38 for all at an address. Some choose to pay more to support our work, others pay what they can.
Members receive the Prayer Book Today magazine three times a year and the journal Faith and Worship twice a year.
The BCP is often sidelined in parishes but there is growing evidence that it is attracting younger people seeking something more than Common Worship.
The BCP is for everybody, including young people. The Cranmer Awards offer youngsters a opportunity to discover cultural riches they might not otherwise encounter.
Help us by telling your parish and local schools about the competition and encouraging them to enter.
