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. The first is a gentle revision of the interim Ordinal and Service Book of 2005 which stands in continuity with the 1931 Ordinal and Service Book and its much admired prayer of ordination.
The second is a more radical revision which expresses something of creativity in worship within the Church today. These forms of service may be used word for word, or used more freely as a guide, or used interchangeably.
