    He proposes that Anglican identity might rather be found within a shared consistent pattern of prescriptive liturgies, established and maintained through canon lawand embodying both a historic deposit of formal statements of doctrine, and also framing the regular reading and proclamation of scripture. Political unity in England was established under the Wessex kings in the 10th century, however, and reforms of the church took place. After that no more lay readers were appointed until Inthe Synod of the Church of England in Bermuda was formed. Throughout the work, Hooker makes clear that theology involves prayer and is concerned with ultimate issues and that theology is relevant to the social mission of the church. Inhowever, all three houses of the General Synod passed a bill authorizing the installation of women as bishops.

    The principle of looking to the prayer books as a guide to the parameters of belief and practice is called by the Latin name lex orandi, lex credendi "the law of prayer is the law of belief". The cathedral in Canterbury, Kent, England. The pews of churches in this country are emptying fast. The way that this is often expressed is by saying that the Church of England is both 'catholic and reformed.

    At the same time, a Diocese of Bermuda became separate from the Diocese of Newfoundlandbut both continued to be grouped under the Bishop of Newfoundland and Bermuda untilwhen Newfoundland and Bermuda each received its own Bishop.

For some low-church and evangelical Anglicans, the 16th-century Reformed Thirty-Nine Articles form the basis of doctrine. What has remained constant, however, has been the Church's commitment to the faith 'uniquely revealed in the Holy Scriptures and set forth in the catholic creeds,' its maintenance of the traditional three fold order of ministry, and its determination to bring the grace of God to the whole nation through word and sacrament in the power of the Holy Spirit.
