Liturgical Advisory Committee
Liturgical resources for the new church year go live
Through the website, worship leaders and others can access:
- The Collects, Readings and Post Communion Prayer as well as some hymn suggestions for each Sunday;
- Resources and Orders of Service for daily worship including Holy Communion, Morning and Evening Prayer, the Late Evening Office, and Compline; and
- A PDF download of the Sunday and Weekday Readings from Advent Sunday 2022 until the day before Advent 2023.
Each of these pages allows access to a calendar which enables users to navigate directly to the date of their choosing.
Speaking about the resources, the Ven Ricky Rountree, the LAC’s Vice–Chair, said: “These resources, which include readings and resources for Sunday Services and Daily Prayer, form the bedrock of our worshipping life in the Church of Ireland. Increasingly, clergy and other worship leaders and parishioners are using the website to access these resources digitally. The LAC remains indebted to our former member, the Revd Ken Rue, who continues to draw these resources together each year for upload to the Church of Ireland website. We are glad to commend these resources for the next liturgical year to use of the Church.”
The annual Sunday and Weekday Readings booklet is also now available, with a view to helping worship planners and lesson readers know the appointed readings for Sundays and weekdays, and those who wish to follow a personal course of Scripture readings which is tied in with the Church calendar.
Sunday and Weekday Readings may be obtained from the Church of Ireland’s online bookstore or from Richard Ryan at the Book Well, Belfast (email: firstname.lastname@example.org; mobile: 07581 143 596). The price is £3.50/€4.00 per booklet.
