How do you feel about Common Worship? Are you confident in using its rich offering of prayers, liturgies, collects and seasonal variations? Or do you sometimes find yourself a little out of your depth, wondering which prayer to use when?
If you're the latter - then this is the book for you! Whether you're an ordinand just starting to get to grips with liturgy, a layperson who'd like to understand services better, or a leader who'd like to improve their confidence, here is the ultimate beginner's guide to Common Worship.
Assuming absolutely no knowledge of liturgy or Common Worship, it includes a wealth of helpful knowledge:
- A simple guide to every Common Worship book published, what's in each one and when you'll need it.
- Overviews of all the Common Worship services in print and when you should use them.
- Things you can change in liturgy - and things you probably shouldn't!
- The Calendar and Lectionary - what they are, how they work, and how you can calculate dates yourself.
"This book ... is a real gift to all of us and it is a gift well worth grasping with both hands before you sit down to work the keyboard for your next bit of worship planning." - Bishop Christopher Cocksworth
