Worship

The primary duty of Christians is to offer God their worship.

The Church in Wales stands in the tradition of the Holy Catholic Church (as distinct from the Roman Catholic Church), which means that the majority of our worship is based around the sacrament of the Eucharist. We seek to follow Christ’s instruction to his disciples to ‘do this in remembrance of me.’

However, the possibilities for worship are almost endless; even if we simply concentrate on the Eucharist we find that there are many different ways in which we can be faithful to our Lord’s command.

The Church in Wales has two authorised rites for the Eucharist – that contained in the 1984 Church in Wales Book of Common Prayer, and the more recent Holy Eucharist 2004, which seeks to enshrine the fundamental understandings of the Eucharist in more contemporary language.
