I was baptised and confirmed at Canterbury Cathedral by the Bishop of Dover, Trevor Willmott, last year if that is anything to go by. I didn't know about the difference between the High Church and the Common Anglican Church. I thought that I was just attending the standard Anglican Church as I was baptised at Canterbury Cathedral which is our local Cathedral.
The Church (St Mary of Sevington) that I go to is so tiny that the priest Rev John Mackenzie ( http://www.willesborough.org.uk/rev.html ) only comes to do a Eucharist service only once a month. He does 3 or 4 weekly services at the bigger Church (Willesborough).
During the rest of the month when Rev John does not attend, we have lay people taking the service. Usually 4 people from our congregation take turns to do this (2 men and 2 women). It's a very nice and intimate service and then we have tea and coffee and biscuits after the service.
