Welcome.

This page provides resources for you to lead worship services, Morning and Evening Prayer, and the Liturgy of the Word, a church service without the Eucharist. 

(For those lay persons wishing to lead the primary Sunday worship service, please contact Paula Blundell at the Synod Office regarding obtaining a Lay Ministry certificate to do so.) 

Resources are provided for the BAS and BCP prayerbooks as well as other forms of leading the Liturgy of the Word. Also provided are resources for a greater understanding of the lectionary and the liturgical year, the context of our Anglican worship, and ways to worship that engage with our bodies as well as minds and spirits.
