Common Worship : Christian Initiation Hardback
Part of the Common Worship: Services and Prayers for the Church of England series
This desk-size volume contains the liturgy for all kinds of Christian Initiation.
It includes the well-known rites of Baptism and Confirmation, as well as a range of associated services to help Christians in the various stages of their journey of faith.
These associated services included Rites on the Way, designed to be used with adults who have recently found faith.
These rites mark their coming to faith and help them on the journey towards baptism and confirmation.
Also included are various Rites of Affirmation, designed for those who wish to mark or reaffirm a Baptism that has already taken place.
Services of Reconciliation and Restoration are also included, as they draw individuals back into the full baptismal life of the Christian community.
These include the Reconciliation of a Penitent (individual confession), and a corporate service of penitence for use during Advent and Lent or in preparation for mission or pilgrimage. Services included are: * Thanksgiving for the Gift of a Child * Rites Supporting Disciples on the Way of Christ * Holy Baptism * Emergency Baptism * Holy Baptism and Confirmation, including a Vigil Service * Celebration after an Initiation Service outside the Parish * Thanksgiving for Holy Baptism * Admission of the Baptized to Communion * A Form for the Corporate Renewal of Baptismal Vows * Affirmation of Baptismal Faith * Reception into Communion of the Church of England * A Corporate Service of Penitence * The Reconciliation of a Penitent * A Celebration of Wholeness and Healing
