Written by experts, some of whom have been closely involved in the production of "Common Worship" services, this text is a comprehensive guide to the key features, the underlying thinking and the practical implications of Common Worship.
Common Worship is the collective title given to the complete revision of all services and rites of the Church of England and will form the basis for over 1000 parishes throughout the UK. This will mean that clergy, layreaders and Church members will be facing all forms of worship to learn and understand. Common Worship Today is aimed at just these people. This title will be the only book that looks at the sevices and rites in depth, helping to explain their meaning and putting the words into the context of the daily life of the Church. It will be presented in a colourful and open way with illustrations to help the new user of the Common Worship services to understand the background to the changes as well as to apply them to the spiritual needs of the congregation.
