Update 7 - Where is the New Prayer Book?

Where is the 'New' Prayer Book?

The ACSA Liturgical Committee has become aware that there is a widespread assumption that a 'new' Prayer Book has been produced and it is available now.

Many of those placing orders for Celebrating Sunday, the new experimental.

supplemental liturgical resource with materials for Advent through Pentecost have done so assuming that it is the New Prayer Book.

The Committee is calling upon everyone involved in liturgy and the leadership of worship, to help correct this misunderstanding.

Expecting a New Prayer Book is an appropriate eagerness that we welcome-  however,
such an expectation will only be met after many years of hard work.

The New Prayer Book has been called for by the Synod of Bishops and Provincial
Synod - and is a goal which the Liturgical Committee is diligently pursuing.

However revising APB 1989 is a process, one that will require the involvement of the whole Church, much work, and many years. During those years the Liturgical Committee will be producing several supplemental liturgical resources authorised for experimental, trial use. Celebrating Sunday is the first in this series of publications.

These supplemental resources will be the result of a process of wide consultation among the people of ACSA and will reflect the diverse styles of worship common to our Church while maintain the characteristic features of Anglican Worship.

The ACSA Liturgical Committee looks forward to continued communication with everyone involved in the worship we offer and with eagerness anticipates your involvement in this exciting and historic process of Revision and Renewal.
