Product description

One of the most common tasks undertaken by all clergy is ministry to the sick and to the bereaved. Containing the essentials for pastoral ministry in the community, Common Worship: A Pastoral Ministry Companion brings together services, prayers and readings for the most frequently encountered pastoral occasions in a portable, easy-reference volume.

It includes liturgies, prayers and readings for:

  • Emergency baptism
  • Prayers for the sick and their families
  • Holy Communion at home or in hospital
  • Reconciliation services (not present in previous Pastoral Services or Ministry to the Sick volumes)
  • Prayers with the dying and at the time of a death
  • Prayers for use at home before and after a funeral
  • Passages of Scripture and Psalms in both modern and Prayer Book versions

This elegant and discreet volume - bound in soft-touch imitation leather with two ribbons - is the ideal size for keeping to hand in your pocket, bag or car glove compartment.

Author Information

Church of England

The Church of England uses two complementary sets of services authorised by the Church of England's canon law - Common Worship and the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. Common Worship (2000-2008) employs a more modern turn of phrase than the Book of Common Prayer, with vibrant images that seek to connect the biblical tradition with people's own experiences. It provides a common structure for Church of England services, but with a large variety of prayers, readings and resources that allow churches to tailor their services to their own setting.
