Monthly Prayer Schedule for the current calendar year.

The Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) is a three year cycle of Bible readings. It follows the seasons of the Christian year and begins each year with the first Sunday in Advent (which usually falls on the last Sunday in November).

Our worship resources contain current services, sermons and music suggestions from the Assembly and churches with similar backgrounds to our own such as the United Church of Canada and Church of Scotland.

A lectionary is a series of readings from the Scriptures designed to be used from week to week as the basis for preaching and worship. More information on the Revised Common Lectionary can be found on the Uniting Church Assembly website here - https://uniting.church/lectionary-2023-2024/
