Liturgical revision has been an integral part of the life of the Anglican Church of Canada. The revisers of the first Canadian prayer book (1918) noted two complementary forces in the liturgical life of the church: fidelity to a tradition of liturgical prayer extending over many centuries and responsiveness to the expressed needs and concerns of the present generation of Christians who gather to offer their praise and prayers to God.

This fall we will explore how we worship and consider the liturgical work being done across the country and around the Anglican Communion. Initially, we will gather for 3 sessions, focussing on:
- Principles for worship: What guides our decision-making in the development of liturgy?
- Structure of the Eucharist service: What is the common approach to eucharistic celebration that builds Anglican identity and unity?
- Eucharistic prayers: What is the theological and pastoral content in the current variety of Eucharistic prayers?
We will meet Monday’s at 7:00pm and Wednesday’s at 10:00am for 3 weeks, beginning September 14th and 16th respectively. Please contact Christine for more information!
