Lectionary (Year B)

A lectionary is a cycle of biblical readings that runs through the Church Year, beginning at the start of Advent.

The Methodist Church in Britain uses the Revised Common Lectionary, which was developed in the 1980s and is now used throughout the world by many Christian denominations.  Visit the Singing the Faith Plus website for more information.
