Senior pastors, the CEO model, elder rule, bishops, high church, low church non-government etc. are all forms of church government all have their problems because all are led by humans. The book’s weakness is its presentation that the only right model of church governance is elder rule/5.   The High Church service will have the three-fold Kyrie in Greek. A Low Church service will have no candles on the altar to avoid any suggestion of worshipping the Eucharistic elements; a high-church service will have gold or silver cnadlesticks with ornate drip-guards and use Sanctus bells as well.

  In a low church, they are more "happy clappy", that is, less formal in their worship and more "enthusiastic", in the non-theological sense of the word, and ecstatic. It isn't meant to suggest high church is better in any way than low church, any more than High German is better than Low German or the Highlands are better than the Lowlands.   One can speak in high church terms of various symbolic or Platonic themes for which the mioderns have no comparable replacement. Thus, even apart from the conservative traditionalist's specific concerns, a high-church lefty might worry that the victory of low church evangelicalism will strip the church of symbolic themes and leave a void.

Historical use. The term low church was used in the early part of the 18th century as the equivalent of the term Latitudinarian in that it was used to refer to values that provided much latitude in matters of discipline and faith.

The term was in contradistinction to the term high church, or high churchmen, which applied to those who valued the exclusive authority of the. "Low Church" is a neutral term that simply describes a type of worship that does not follow a prescribed order of service, that does not follow certain liturgical patterns, and does not make use of developed ritual, ceremony, or worship accouterments like vestments.

From Webster's Dictionary: "Low Church () tending esp. in Anglican worship. Question: "What is meant by High Church and Low Church?" Answer: Any study of denominationalism or church history is sure to lead, sooner or later, to the terms High Church and Low ally, these terms defined movements within the Anglican Church, but the meanings have broadened to apply to non-Anglican churches, as well.

The terms have to do. The terms “High” and “Low” are rarely used nowadays but refer to different “parties” or schools of churchmanship within the Church of England/Anglican Communion.

“High” Church is the older of the two terms historically and was first applied, in the late seventeenth century, to those individuals who were opposed to the Puritan wing of the Continued.

Adherents of the Low Church position also oppose elaborate liturgy and ceremony and anything that is too close to the usage of the Roman Catholic Church.

The term “Low Church” came into use in the early 18th century to distinguish the more liberal, or Latitudinarian, group from the “High Church,” or conservative group. And those people tend to say one is low church, the other high church.

It’s not a precise distinction. Now, however, I worship in an ELCA Lutheran Church that is decidedly “low church,” even though many of my friends and former parishioners would bristle at what they would call its “formality.”.

It is also due to the fact that the “high” church movement has won much, at least ceremonially, in the new Prayer Book. We have regularized Communion, Confession, Holy Week liturgies, and much more that would once have been unthinkable to include in our corporate, agreed upon common life.

Anglo-Catholics are a subset of High-Church Anglicans, who not only retain aspects of Catholic ritual (incense, bells, chant, etc.) but also regard themselves as doctrinally similar to Catholics. The low-church party, in it’s original meaning of following a mostly Protestant worship style, is pretty rare these days.

Seeing the looks on Ben Preston and Craig Lynn’s faces last week while recording a session on J. Gresham Machen, I worried not only that American indelicacy had run up against Irish sensitivities, but also that the Orthodox Presbyterian habit of being opinionated had offended the moderate sense of the Presbyterian Church of Ireland ministers.

High Church Anglicanism tends to be closer than. As far as the high church/low church, my take on it, listening to my Episcopalian mother-in-law, is the amount of liturgical practices and the tradition of it in the church. In her case, the term “high church” also seems to reflect a more conservative approach.

LOW CHURCH. Low Church is the name applied to the party within the anglican communion in general, and the Church of England in particular, that interprets the book of common prayer in a wholly Protestant sense.

This large body in the Church of England took its rise with the evangelicals of the 18th century. The Tractarians, with their lofty views on Catholic doctrine.

Within Lutheranism there is also a historic "High Church" and "Low Church" distinction that is very comparable to that of Anglicanism (see Neo-Lutheranism and Pietism). In contemporary Roman Catholicism, the term "high church" is rarely used, and when used refers solely to.

Low church is a term of distinction in the Church of England, initially designed to be the series of doctrinal and ecclesiastic challenges to the Established church in the 16th and 17th centuries, commentators and divines began to refer to the more Anglo-Catholic tendency in the English church as high contrast, in the early 18th century those.
