RT @rhutch@Mustard_Seed1 @CofEPioneering it's a great book, been recommending it to lots of people
Author(s): Church of England
Common Worship: Times and Seasons helps clergy and Readers plan and prepare worship that embraces the richness of the Christian year. This collection concentrates on the major liturgical cycles of the Christian year, especially from Advent to Candlemas and from Lent to Easter. It also includes a collection of resources for the festivals and seasons of the agricultural year, as well as material to explore themes like creation and the environment.This practical resource includes creative service outlines; fully worked out services for all the major festivals and a wealth of seasonally appropriate liturgical material e.g. introductions to the Peace, acclamations and blessings.
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.
'This is an impressive directory of resources that will enrich the worshipping life of the church and aid the planning of clergy, Readers, musicians and intercessors.' - Peter Moger, National Worship Development Officer
Excellent. I wish I'd got in time for Christmas, but here we go for lent. The .pdfs are great and it's good to see what is in the book before getting it.
