  Low church - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Low church is a term of distinction in the Church of England or other Anglican churches, initially designed to be pejorative.
Low Churchman now became the equivalent of Evangelical, the designation of the movement, associated with the name of Simeon, which laid the chief stress on the necessity of personal conversion.
Low churchmen reject the doctrine that the sacraments confer grace ex opere operato (e.g., baptismal regeneration) and lay stress on the Bible as the sole source of authority in matters of faith.

 Church of England - Printer-friendly - MSN Encarta
Low Church members, finding their piety and church practice akin to those generally characteristic of Protestantism, feared an excessive tendency toward the beliefs and practices of Roman Catholicism in this revival by High Church members (those preferring a closer adherence to sacraments and to Catholic liturgy).
Furthermore, the movement enlarged the theological concern of the church for the ancient Catholic and apostolic character of the ministry and for the sacraments, for its pastoral ideals, and for the meaning of its fundamental creeds.
That both the Low Church Evangelical Revival and the High Church Oxford movement could develop within the Church of England illustrates the breadth and flexibility of the Anglican tradition of faith and practice, as does the very coexistence through the years of the Low Church and High Church tendencies.

 The Difference Between Low Church and High Church
From Webster's Dictionary: "Low Church (1710) tending esp. in Anglican worship to minimize emphasis on the priesthood, sacraments, and the ceremonial in worship and often to emphasize evangelical principles." By contrast: "High Church (1687) tending esp. in Anglican worship to stress the sacerdotal [priestly], liturgical, ceremonial, traditional, and Catholic elements in worship."
John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist tradition, was sometimes accused by his detractors of being "low church" because of his field preaching and training of lay-preachers outside the confines of normal church structure and structures.
Low Church attitudes, especially among American evangelicals, are often suspicious of structured worship, including emphasis on the sacraments and observance of rituals such as the Seasons of the Church Year.

 Gottesblog: High Church or No Church?
Moreover, just as "high church" is weak due to its failure to distinguish the naughty from, as it were, the nice, so also "low church" is weak.
Low church, especially among those who employ its distinguishing marks with an adiaphorous passion, all too often means church in which the liturgy means little or nothing.
The vengeance with which "low" worship is now being practiced, as well as the depths to which "low" has in some cases plummeted, leads us to the temptation to wonder how far in fact low now is from the bottom, that is, from the absence of worship at all.

 The Church of England
Under Charles I, the "popish" High-Church policies of the Arminian William Laud alienated the Puritan wing of the Church, and after the victory of Cromwell's (frequently Puritan) parliamentarians over Charles's (frequently Catholic) Royalists in the Civil Wars of 1642-1651, the Anglican Church, by now the Church of England, was largely dismantled.
The Puritan emphasis on individualism, however, made the establishment of a national Presbyterian Church during the Interregnum impossible, and the Restoration of the Monarchy under Charles II in 1660 facilitated the re-establishment of the Anglican Church, purged of Puritans, who split into various dissenting factions.
Although the real authority of the Church diminished thereafter, evangelical fervor diminished as well, and there was a considerable movement of industrial wealth from the old Nonconformists to the established church.

The church was becoming weary of the controversy, and because theology was already being taught at Ursinus, it was probably expedient for the Synod to vote in favor of Bomberger.

The term was apparently invented to describe churchmen whose principles were the opposite of "high church." The term "low church" emerged in England in the early eighteenth century.
During this period, it was virtually synonymous with "latitudinarian." Low church teaching minimized the authority of the episcopate and tended to exalt royal supremacy.
The low church party stressed the importance of preaching as moral discourse and tended to assign sacraments to a subordinate place in church life.

 Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields
The Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields is an Episcopal parish in the Diocese of Pennsylvania that is centered on the worship of God, the ministry of all baptized persons, and the call to be agents of Christ’s love in the world.
The expressions ‘high’, ‘low’, and ‘broad’ date back to the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, respectively; however, the theological issues implied in these terms date back to the emergence of the Church of England in the turmoil of the 16th century.
Most Episcopal churches today could be categorized as broad in their understanding of the church’s authority, the interpretation of scripture, and in their liturgical practices (broad liturgical practices would include the weekly celebration of the Eucharist, wearing vestments, having a minimal amount of ceremonial, and the like).
