It is noted that the Presbyterians had now united with the Congregationalists to make the United Reformed Church. The book in question had been published in 1968. Since then, much discussion, around the circulation of papers, co-incidentally taking place inspired by the Uppsala Report on worship in both constituent parts of the church, was taking place. Significant developments were: a growing observance of the Christian Year, the writing of new creeds, experimentation in worship, more frequent and varied celebration of the Lord's Supper. There was a strong desire for change in church music.
