Free to Use Service Material

On this page will you will find pre-prepared service sheets, orders for worship, prayers and other worship material. They are all in PDF format, and you can print them off and insert the hymns and themes and tailor them to the specific circumstances. Many of the 'high' churches and other liturgical denominations already have plenty of this sort of material. Less liturgical churches have greater freedom of expression, perhaps, but with that comes the problem of 'what shall I preach about?' Make use of any or all of the material here, which we will update on a regular basis.  Some are complete forms of worship, and you can print off one for each member of the congregation which forms the service sheets.
The only conditions of use are: they are not to be used for profit, that is, don't sell them. They are not to be used in a negative or derogatory manner. Please hold the richness of the various denominations and their variations in prayer. Pray for co-operation and understanding amongst them. Please also pray for the work of the Cross Denominational Mission, and members of the mission's team. These are the only conditions of use we ask.

Publication: The Science of the Sacraments, an esoteric view of sacramental worship. OCAC no longer considers esoteric belief essential. However, this is a very valuable insight into gnosticism and esoteric exploration of spirituality, but please note: the Science of the Sacraments does not represent OCAC policy or belief.
