“Low churches” place more emphasis on the Reformed nature of Anglicanism than broad
or high churches, and are usually Evangelical in belief and practice. They tend to favor
the Prayer Book services of Morning and Evening Prayer over a service centered on the
Eucharist. Low churchmen reject the doctrine that the sacraments or rites confer grace,
and lay stress on the Bible as the sole source of authority in matters of faith. They thus
differ little from Protestants of other denominations.
