This revised, expanded edition of the Common Worship: Times and Seasons contains everything you need to celebrate Holy Communion Order One throughout the church year (excluding Holy Week and the Easter Liturgy). It combines relevant material from the Common Worship: Main Volume President’s Edition with seasonal material from Times and Seasons, laid out clearly for use at the altar. It also includes selected material from Festivals and Pastoral Services, and the Additional Collects. With nearly 400 pages of seasonal material, the Times and Seasons President’s Edition offers prayers, blessings and fully-worked out services for every season of the Christian year. Though the Liturgy of Palm Sunday and a Mid-morning Eucharist on Easter Day are included, the full liturgy for Holy Week and Easter is instead found in Common Worship: Holy Week and Easter.

Please note this volume does not contain Holy Communion Order Two or any other traditional language texts.
'Common Worship: Times and Seasons will bring the Christian Year alive in new ways in many church contexts. It is important that these opportunities are grasped creatively and David Kennedy's practical guide will be a real resource in ensuring this.' - Michael Parham
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.
