Preachers Perspectives

We asked twelve preachers to share the insights they have gathered through their experiences of writing and delivering sermons regularly.

Check out what they had to say!


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.

Ordination booklet

Two forms of service for the Ordination and Induction of a Minister of Word and Sacrament have been prepared by the Church of Scotland Liturgical group are offered here.

CrossReach Stories

The style and content of the Gospels are by and large narrative accounts of events. They are collections of stories about particular people, in a particular place, at a particular time.

Stewardship and Finance

Three former Moderators of the General Assembly kindly agreed to take us on a journey through some of their personal thoughts about the stewardship of time.

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.


Mission Forum

The Mission Forum is responsible for holding mission before the Church. The members of the Forum have produced a series of four Starters for Sunday.


This month's material includes contributions from Douglas Main, Jim Robertson, Michael J Mair and Rosemary Frew.
