W 186 Ordination Rites in Common Worship (2006)

The ordination services were the last of the Common Worship services to be authorised by Synod - and only after some controversial debates there and in revision.

This study looks at some of the main issues in the history of the development of the Ordinal, examines (not uncritically) how these have found their place in the new services, and explains how in practice ordinations might take place.
