Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Evangelical Connexion of the Free Church of England: Bishop's Letter Convocation 2005

The following letter makes clear that the sister church of the Reformed Episcopal Church, which is the Free Church of England is also going Anglo-Catholic. However, The Evangelical Connexion of the Free Church of England, is solidly Protestant and Reformed and completely opposed to any compromise with Tractarianism. Please click on the title to read the letter in pdf format on the Free Church of England website:

Bishop's Letter Prepared for Convocation 2005

Soli Gloria Deo!

[Please note: I was unaware that there is a break away group from the Free Church of England called The Evangelical Connexion of the Free Church of England. Apparently, the Free Church of England is also going in a Tractarian direction. Please see the comment below.]

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the other Free Church of England body - the one actually in communion with the REC.

The Evangelical Connexion of FCE is one of two FCE bodies in the UK. And the one holding to the truths of the founders of the FCE and REC.

In Him,
