During the week our family (i.e., author of Anglican Rose & this blog) sings, prays, and studies the Christian faith according to the 1928 American Prayer Book and 1902 Standard Bible. Our Leaflet and Newsletter (bottom-right sidebar) is an attempt to gather like-minded friends and families from the Rosegarden, Glenmoor, and other neighborhoods within the South Bay Area (Santa Clara, San Jose, Fremont, and Hayward). We are not self-sufficient but encourage vital lay agency, “churchly” or not.

The Bartlett’s fellowship is preferably with conservative low-church Episcopalians and other moderate Protestants. Our society does Evening Prayer most frequently on Sunday afternoons. Otherwise, we worship with others at other abodes, including the Friends’ Meeting House in San Jose. We hope to help mend those broken sprigs which once adorned and grew within our native Church. As Wesley reminded his Methodist people, “the first Message of all our Preachers is to the lost Sheep of the Church of England”.

If you live in the Far West, we are happy to visit you. Please contact us for more information:
