|Reform movement. Evangelical
grouping in the Church of England; they are protestant in
the strictest sense of the word, seeing themselves as the
heirs to the Reformation tradition. They base their
beliefs in the nature of the church firmly upon the
formulaics of Cranmer's Book of Common Prayer,
and place a strict Biblical interpretation upon
theological matters. Their opposition to women priests
has pushed them into an unlikely alliance with the Forward in Faith movement.
However, unlike that grouping of traditionalist Anglo-catholics, the Reform
movement does not keep its collective head down; instead,
it celebrates its opposition, confronting the Anglican
establishment on matters such as financial contributions
and episcopal authority. They have refused to accept
episcopal oversight from bishops known to have liberal
views on homosexuality, and in some cases have placed
themselves under the episcopal care of the so-called flying bishops.
