The 2015-16 print lectionary is here! This year it's not so much 'hot pink' as 'communion wine burgundy': http://t.co/DrOgySPX7v

"'For some this will be an essential source book for regular Sunday worship. For many more it will be the first place to look when particular pastoral opportunities or crises present themselves, whatever day of the week they fall.' Tim Stratford, Praxis News of Worship"
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.
