1928 Prayer Book

The 1928 Prayer Book was approved in 1927 by the Church Assembly of the Church of England but its authorization was defeated in the House of Commons on 14 June 1928. Its opponents included the Conservative William Joynson-Hicks, then MP for Twickenham and Home Secretary.

In 1966, with some changes, it was authorized as legal for public worship, as the First Series of Alternative Services. Subsequently, it made up much of the Alternative Service Book and its successor, Common Worship.
