The Common Worship Main Volume President’s Edition is a large, A4 volume, designed to be used by those presiding at Holy Communion. It contains Eucharistic material from the original Main Volume alongside additional content, such as further prayers, collects, seasonal variations and music. Where the contents of the President’s Edition overlaps with the original Main Volume, dual pagination is provided. Contents:
Please note that, unlike other editions of the Main Volume, the President’s Edition does NOT contain Thanksgiving for the Gift of a Child, A Service of the Word, Morning, Evening and Night Prayer, the Litany, the Psalter, the Lectionary, or Canticles.
The Church of England uses two complementary sets of services authorised by the Church of England's canon law - Common Worship and the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.
Common Worship (2000-2008) employs a more modern turn of phrase than the Book of Common Prayer, with vibrant images that seek to connect the biblical tradition with people's own experiences. It provides a common structure for Church of England services, but with a large variety of prayers, readings and resources that allow churches to tailor their services to their own setting.
