Anglican worship is ancient and follows the form of the earliest worship of believers.
Justin Martyr was born about AD 100 in Samaria. In his First Apology written in AD 155, he passionately defends the morality of the Christian life, and provides various ethical and philosophical arguments to convince the Roman emperor, Antoninus, to abandon the persecution of the Church. This Apology is somewhat long but well worth reading. You can find it HERE. In the final chapters (65-68), he describes to the emperor what Christians do when they meet together to worship on Sundays. A portion of the text of these chapters has been incorporated into this video.The Apostle John wrote his Gospel c. AD 90 and Justin Martyr wrote this in AD 155.
