Ask almost any priest what their biggest headache is and the answer is likely to be 'finding with ideas for including children in worship'. Here is the answer to their prayers - a whole year's worth of ready-to-use scripts for children's liturgies of the Word. This resource has been developed and used in Anglican and Catholic parish churches over the last ten years by a professional educationalist, artist and experienced children's church leader. Sixty complete worship outlines are included and they feature: ready-to-use scripts to open up the Sunday Gospel for children of all ages, activities, games, and creative ideas, reproducible artwork and cartoons, simple responsive prayers to begin and end each session, ideas for 'back in church' presentations to the adults by the children. The scripts and illustrations (in full colour) can be downloaded from the accompanying CD Rom.
