Revised Common Lectionary

The Revised Common Lectionary was prepared by the Consultation on Common Texts (CCT), and consists of a table of readings which gives the liturgical day or date and the Scripture references for the texts to be read.

Tomorrow's Calling

Over the course of the next year, Starters for Sunday will host prayers of intercession for the Church of Scotland, in particular for the success of the Tomorrow's Calling initiative. Some of these prayers will be prepared by people from the Church of Scotland and other prayers will come from our Ecumenical partners. They will be written for use during public worship and private devotions.
