Submissions for the prayer handbook 2018

PHB writing image 2016Looking for prayer writers

Could you write for the United Reformed Church’s 2018 Prayer handbook?

Deadline for submissions: 28 November 2016

You’re probably already familiar with the United Reformed Church’s (URC) prayer handbook – our perennially popular collection of lectionary based prayers and meditations. Historically, we’ve commissioned all prayers from prayer writers across the denomination – but we changed the approach for the 2017 prayer handbook (Feasts and festivals, available now), including non-commissioned prayers for the first time. And we’re doing the same for the 2018 prayer handbook.

So, if you write prayers, please consider writing one for us!  We’re aiming to make the prayer handbook as representative of, and accessible to as many people as possible and so we’re looking for prayers from people of all ages, nationalities and Christian traditions. In short – we’re looking for prayers from you!

Full details and the guidelines for non-commissioned prayers give you all the information you need.  If you have further queries please email us.  

The 2017 prayer handbook – Feasts and festivals – is available now from the URC’s online store.
