Vestry Guide 3


An explanation of the liturgy of the Eucharist for adults preparing for confirmation or those interested in learning about the Anglican liturgy.

The vast theology and enormous depth of the Eucharist explains why it has been central to Christian worship since the time of the apostles. This modern guide to the Liturgy explores the Church of England’s Common Worship form of service. It explains and demystifies everything about the words, actions, traditions and meaning within the Eucharist service, both implicit and explicit. Throughout, the explanations are printed facing the respective text of the service, allowing the reader to follow through ‘in real time’ as a service proceeds and thereby appreciate better the various parts and gain a fuller understanding of the liturgy.

The approach here is conceived for adult candidates for confirmation or considering reception into the church. It is also an ideal introduction for anyone interested in learning more about the Anglican liturgy, as well as an excellent resource for teaching and discussing its meaning.

The third in the ‘Vestry Guides’ series. This edition uses the forms of text from Common Worship and the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible. Created by Paul Monk.
