Liturgical Year


During the Reformation in the 16th century music in the church took a new direction. John Calvin's Genevan Psalter has been sung by the church ever since.

What is a Liturgical Calendar?


All of God's people participate in the reading of His Word in a systematic way, i.e., the lectionary, and the church provides a calendar ordered around the concept of a Liturgical Year.

For example: every Sunday a particular part from Scripture is read and that a part of the congregational singing suits this passage and topic.

This Liturgical Calendar is normally used in the (morning) worship services. At home, in the family, this calendar could be used to read from Scripture and prepare for the Sunday worship service. At school this calendar provides a structure to connect to the Worship services and sermons on Sunday, and/or study Scripture further with the students.
