“We are grateful for the contribution of your correspondents to the discussion on the use of the new baptism service. For many of us perhaps the best way forward would be for there to be a general re-authorisation of the ASB service. If it was good enough for attention to the seasonal variations in the prayer over the water.  

The Easter/Pentecost Prayer essentially reproduces the ASB Prayer. Following the Scott way it seems possible to keep within the letter as well as the spirit of the law in using ASB.

But the more substantial objection to the Common Worship Baptism service remains. It should not be necessary to use what might be called ‘the scissor and paste method’ to deduce the doctrine of the Church of England. Unfortunately the impression will remain in churches using undiluted Common Worship that we Anglicans do hold to a doctrine of baptismal regeneration and that parents can avoid the responsibility of believing by passing it on to the congregation” .
