Book of Common Prayer from the Anglican Church of Ghana was most
likely necessitated by Ghana's independence in 1957, which would
have required replacement or removal of Prayers for the Queen.
In addition, there were also a few changes in the Eucharist reflecting
the Anglo-Catholic nature of the Diocese, as described in Modern
Anglican Liturgies, 1958-1968, by Colin
"In Ghana (diocese
of Accra) the tradition has always been Anglo-catholic, and the
Accra Prayer Book (1960) reflects and standardizes this tradition,
even if somewhat unusually as far as the eucharist is concerned.
The whole 1662 rite is included in its original structure, but after
the Sanctus comes Benedictus Qui Venit and a rubric which implies
that the 'Western' canon is then said secretly as far as Quam
This is followed by Humble Access and the Prayer of Consecration
of 1662 aloud, and then (according to the rubric) comes the Unde
et Memores to the end of the canon secretly (whilst the worshippers
say secretly in English an anamnesis from [the 1929 Scottish BCP]I)."
Other than these
minimal changes, and some additions to the Calendar, this BCP follows
the 1662 almost exactly.
