Over the last two months we have been experimenting with three different orders of service at St. George’s. Each one is an approved Church of England order and a Eucharistic or Holy Communion service. They are not the only options and each option could be tweaked or changed in various ways.
The three orders are (the colours refer to the covers used in church):
- Beige. Most like the order of service in use at St. George’s in recent years. It is Common Worship Order 1 with Eucharistic Prayer B. It includes optional extras like: the Kyrie Eleison and taking of the bread and wine.
- Green. The shortest of the orders of service. It is Order 1 in Common Worship with Eucharistic Prayer H and no optional extras.
- Blue. This is most like the traditional Book of Common Prayer service (1662), but in contemporary language. It is Order 2 in Common Worship.
Below are PDFs of the orders of service. It would be good to read through them again before completing the survey.
