Liturgical Advisory Committee

The Liturgical Advisory Committee was established by the General Synod in 1962 with the following objectives:

  • To formulate and suggest to the General Synod such liturgical proposals relating to Public Worship as may seem desirable to the Advisory Committee from time to time.
  • To consider and report on, if requested to do so by the General Synod, such other liturgical proposals relating to Public Worship as may be brought before the said body from time to time.
  • To foster the study of the Book of Common Prayer and of the Public Worship of the Church by preparing articles relating to these subjects and offering them for publication.
  • To report annually to the General Synod.

The membership of the Liturgical Advisory Committee consists of 14 members, elected triennially by the General Synod, four co–opted members and a student observer.

Following the publication of the Book of Common Prayer in 2004, the Committee has restructured its method of working into four specialist working groups which are:

  1. Liturgical Education and Formation
  2. Music, Art and Liturgical Space
  3. Liturgical Resources
  4. Electronic Liturgy
