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 revised edition is brought fully up to date with all the latest books, service cards and apps now available, including the Eucharistic Prayers for Use with Children, the Baptism texts in accessible language, Patterns for Baptism and Common Worship: Baptism and Confirmation Services, and the Daily Prayer app.

"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


‘I found it helpful in many ways. E.g. I hadn’t realised that I could use the seasonal material [in the baptism service] at any time as I didn’t bother to read the instructions in the blue book about seasonal material, it being Ordinary time when I read it.’

‘I have learnt a lot about how to utilize Common Worship, although I have been using them for some time and thought I was fairly familiar with them.’

‘It seems to me essential reading for all Readers and ministers, especially those who think they know everything about Common Worship, as I now sincerely doubt that!’ -- Reviews from readers
