The Church in Wales, in common with other Provinces in the Anglican Communion, has authorised several contemporary language liturgies.
These liturgies have been produced by the Standing Liturgical Advisory Commission and approved by the Bishops and the Governing Body for use.
They offer a great variety and choice of readings and prayers, and may be used selectively to produce booklets suitable for parish use and use in individual circumstances.
Copies can be downloaded by using the links below to the provincial website resources pages:.
Mothering Sunday (Mothers’ Union)
Each week, the diocesan Ministry Team published a homily, written by licensed clergy, for use by Worship Leaders in services they take, based on the Bible readings for that Sunday (Worship Leaders are not licensed to preach).
They can be used in place of a sermon, or simply to help congregations engage more with the Scripture. They are freely available to download via the link below
Gair y Dydd
Gair Y Dydd is the only daily devotional material available through the medium of Welsh. Each booklet covers a three-month period and offers Scripture, commentary and prayer on a daily basis.
It is produced by the Anglican, Roman Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist, Independent and Baptist churches within Wales and printed by Wasg y Bwthyn in Caernarfon.
The Editorial board is currently chaired by the Ven Hywel Jones, former Archdeacon of Cardigan, and the Bench of Bishops is supporting the ongoing costs of publication.
The Board are looking to increase contributors especially from the Church in Wales.
