This booklet presents the text of the Common Worship Funeral service, as well as supplementary prayers, Bible readings, Prayers of Entrusting and Commending, The Burial of Ashes, Psalms and Canticles. It includes dual pagination, allowing a funeral to be performed using both Common Worship: Pastoral Services and this booklet simultaneously.
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.
