Christian Life and Worship

The Department for Christian Life and Worship advises the Bishops on subjects relating to the material and spiritual life of the Church.

A key area of the Department’s work is the liturgy: the preparation and reviewing of liturgical texts and the supporting of liturgical formation in dioceses. The two other main areas of work are Patrimony — the heritage of the Church in England and Wales — and Spirituality. The Chair of the department is Archbishop George Stack of Cardiff.

Working with Others

The Department for Christian Life and Worship represents the Bishops’ Conference in a number of organisations.
