The Office of Daily Prayer

One of the glories of the Church of England is its worship. There are currently two collections of services and prayers authorized for use in the Church of England: The Book of Common Prayer and Common Worship: Services and Prayers for the Church of England.

For each collection, the services of Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer for today, yesterday and the next four weeks are also available in full on the Church of England website (www.churchofengland.org) to help you find time for God during your day.

On the front page of our Church website there are three links - to the Common Worship forms of Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer (Compline). These include the text of the psalm and the two Bible readings, and the appropriate Collect. You can easily print the service in an attractive format for reading later. Common Worship “Daily Prayer” is also available in book form – see the picture.

 If you are interested in following one of more of the Daily Offices, we hope that this may be helpful.
