The Season of Advent begins on the 28 November, and with it starts a new liturgical year and a fresh cycle of daily scripture readings. Church of Ireland Publishing has announced the availability of Sunday and Weekday Readings 2011. This annual booklet is compiled by Canon Brian Mayne with the assistance of the Revd Ken Rue. Canon Mayne says, ‘Sunday and Weekday Readings helps worship planners and lesson readers know what the appointed readings are for Sundays and guides them through the options for weekday services. It has been found particularly useful by readers and parish readers who find the tables in the Prayer Book rather baffling at times.’

The price of Sunday and Weekday Readings 2011 is unchanged from the last two years, costing £3 in Northern Ireland and €4 in the Republic of Ireland. Copies are available from the Good Bookshop, Donegall Street, Belfast and the Resource Centre, Holy Trinity, Rathmines, Dublin.

The Liturgical Advisory Committee has now made the text of the weekday readings accessible on the Church of Ireland website – www.ireland.anglican.org/worship.  There can also be found a fully worked out form of Daily Prayer according to the Book of Common Prayer. Both these pages can be accessed on iPhone and iPad and attached to the home page so that they can be used on the move.
