Book of Common Prayer

The Book of Common Prayer (BCP) is the official resource for structuring and ordering worship in the Church of Ireland. The latest edition was published and approved by General Synod in 2004, and contains the legal service for marriage ceremonies.

Every service in the book is linked to here, the links are to the official Church of Ireland website, so will direct you to a new website. Please feel free to download them as PDF or RTF formats.
