Diocesan Liturgy and Worship Group


The purpose of the Liturgy and Worship Group is to help people encounter the living God through worship. It does this by resourcing and supporting churches across the diocese in the following ways:-

  • Providing advice as required to the Bishop and diocese on liturgy and worship

  • Offering assistance in preparing worship for diocesan occasions

  • Co-operating with Mission and Ministry in providing liturgical formation for those who lead worship in parishes, particularly for IME 4-7 and CMD for lay and ordained ministers

  • Promoting good practice in worship and the use of liturgy across the diocese including:

    • a good understanding of the legal principles and freedoms

    • inspiring a sense of drama and excitement

    • valuing its spiritual heritage

    • encouraging worship in fresh expressions that is pioneering and faithful

  • Keeping itself informed of further developments and learning across the Church of England in the area of worship and liturgy in order to be a resource to leaders in parishes.
