This hardback volume contains all the contemporary language Collects and the prayers to be said after Communion, for every Sunday and every major and lesser festival in the year.
It provides both the original collects from the Common Worship Main Volume and the Additional Collects on the same page for convenience and ease of use.
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.
