Common Worship: Christian Initiation

Full Product Description

This latest volume in the "Common Worship" series is an essential part of any minister's library. The services provide a liturgical structure for the journey to and beyond baptism and confirmation. As well as the well known services of Baptism and Confirmation, there are the brand new Rites on the Way designed to be used with adults who have recently found faith - perhaps through Christian nurture courses like Emmaus or Alpha. These services mark their coming to faith and help them on the journey towards baptism and confirmation. Other new services include Reconciliation and Restoration. These include rites for the reconciliation of a penitent (confession), as well as a corporate service of penitence for use during Advent and Lent and in preparation for significant events such as a parish mission or pilgrimage.

The book contains four major groups of services: Rites on the Way - approaching Baptism, including, Thanksgiving for the gift of a child and Rites Supporting Disciples on the Way of Christ; Baptism and Confirmation; Rites of Affirmation and appropriating Baptism, including, admission of the Baptized to Communion, Affirmation of Baptismal Faith and Reception into the Communion of the Church of England; Reconciliation and Restoration - Recovering Baptism, including, a Corporate Service of Penitence, The Reconciliation of a Penitent and A Celebration of Wholeness and Healing.
