PRACTICAL IDEAS FOR ALL-AGE WORSHIP
In three sections, this invaluable resource offers a variety of ways to - as Common Worship puts it - 'encourage imaginative engagement in worship, opening the way for people in the varied circumstances of their lives to experience the love of God in Jesus Christ in the life and power of the Holy Spirit'.
All-age services throughout the Christian year - Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Candlemas, Lent, Mothering Sunday, Easter, Pentecost, Trinity, Harvest and All Saints. Comprehensive outlines include background and biblical notes, hymn suggestions, ideas for visual aids and decoration, Bible and alternative readings, intercessions, dramas, outline talks and other activities to involve the whole worshipping community.
All-age activities to illustrate hymns, providing an opportunity to add an all-age dimension to the standard Sunday service without extensive preparation. A wide range of themes is covered by a mix of traditional and modern hymns, all of which will be well known to most congregations.
Activities for all-age learning, ranging from short sessions to full-day events. Themes include Discipleship, Get to know your Bible, An Easter trial, The colourful world of the New Testament, Living a Community Life, and Fruits of the Spirit.
