WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE “ANGLICAN”?

 

The roots of the Anglican Church go back as far as the first century church.

Our current structure was developed in the latter part of the 20th century. Conservative Anglicans found themselves in theological disagreement with the liberalization taking place in the Anglican Communion.

As a member of the Anglican Church in America (ACA), we are members of the Traditional Anglican Communion. Our traditional liturgical worship makes use of the 1928 Book of Common Prayer.

Our lectionary readings are read from the authorized King James translation. We follow the traditional calendar of the church year. Our worship music is drawn from the rich legacy of Christian hymnody.

Reverend Gary Drinkwater

Founding Rector, Emeritus

Father Gary grew up in the Episcopal tradition. In 1999 he was ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacons in the Episcopal church.

In 2016, Father Gary was ordained to the Priesthood in the Anglican Church and was called to be founding Rector of the Anglican Church of the Transfiguration that same year. In March 2021, Father Gary retired as Rector.

Our church remains ever-grateful to Fr. Gary, as well as to his wife Diane, for their many and diverse contributions to establishing the Anglican Church of the Transfiguration as the viable church body it has become.
