Church Year

As a church within the Anglican Communion, St John’s worship follows the rich pattern of the church’s liturgical year according to the Revised Common Lectionary. The following pages give you a little background information on each of the church’s seasons (which begin, incidentally, with Advent) as well as some general information on what special worship you might experience at St John’s during that time of year. Our calendar includes details of all of our services and at special times we will post a link to more detailed information on our homepage.

The background information included in these pages is drawn from the Church of England’s publication ‘Times and Seasons’ which is available in full by clicking on the link.  Hard copy, as well as other liturgical materials, can be purchased through Cornerstone Bookshop.
