The Lectionary is produced each year to help meet the worship needs of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. It provides the information you need to plan the Eucharist or other services, and to say the Daily Offices on a regular basis. It puts in convenient form many of the provisions of A New Zealand Prayer Book and introduces elements from other sources which we believe will be of benefit to the Church. It is important to bear in mind that a Lectionary is not so much a daily Bible reading scheme as a provision for reading the Scriptures in the course of the daily round of worship of the Church. Thus most, but not all, of the Bible is read.
The Lectionary gives details of the full range of possibilities offered by the liturgical calendar. It offers many choices to suit the needs of individuals and Parishes or groups who meet to pray. For each day we indicate the day’s special character. Reference is made to the season and to the character of the day. If the day is a feast or holy day, that is indicated in bold type and by the date being given greater prominence. Other commemorations are indicated in ordinary type. The smaller letter(s) under the date refer to the day’s recommended colour.
The cost of the 2018 Lectionary is $9.00 which includes GST and P&P. You may either pre-pay your order or we will invoice you when the Lectionaries arrive. The expected delivery date is mid-October. Please click below for an order form.
