What is Transforming Worship?

Transforming Worship: Living the New Creation is an initiative of the Church of England launched in July 2007. The main focus of the project is to enable the formation of God’s people through liturgical worship. The report which was presented to the General Synod, can be downloaded here (PDF)

What is the Liturgical Commission?

The Liturgical Commission is a permanent Commission of the General Synod of the Church of England. It has a four-fold purpose:

  • to prepare forms of service at the request of the House of Bishops (to be submitted to them in the first instance).
  • to advise on the experimental use of forms of service and the development of liturgy
  • to exchange information and advice on liturgical matters with other Churches both in the Anglican Communion and elsewhere
  • to promote the development and understanding of liturgy and its use in the Church.
