Readings at the Church

As a lectionary based church (which basically means we follow a set cycle of readings… whether they are easy or challenging!) we follow the same readings as other Anglican churches throughout the world. There are various lectionary based churches that also follow the same readings (with some exceptions). Imagine the many many various ways that these readings are read; by many different voices and many different interpretations on any given Sunday morning!

For the full listing of Lectionary readings and for more info on the RCL (Revised Common Lectionary) I find the Vanderbilt Divinity Library’s site very helpful. You can access it HERE
