Act of Uniformity Amendment Act 1872
The Act of Uniformity Amendment Act 1872 (35 & 36 Vict. c. 35), sometimes called the Shortened Services Act, was an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom that amended some of the provisions of the English Act of Uniformity 1662.
It allowed certain modifications
- a shortened form of Morning and Evening Prayer on week days
- on special occasions approved by the Ordinary special forms of service, provided that they contain nothing, except anthems or hymns, which did form part of the Holy Scriptures or the Book of Common Prayer
- additional forms of service on Sundays and Holy-days in addition to the regular services, approved by the Ordinary.
- the use of Morning Prayer, the Litany, and the Communion Service as separate services and in varying order
- sermons or lectures without the common prayers or services appointed by the Prayer Book
