The Working Group on Worship has gathered resources that can be used from Easter to Pentecost and beyond in the gathered worship of congregations, presbyteries and synods.  The aim is to invite people to celebrate God’s grace and goodness. This can also include other aspects of worship including confession, lament, intercession.

The calendar may provide helpful resources for worship services, for preaching, for congregations that hold services during the week, or in Bible study, fellowship, or house groups.
