A set of accessible resources for people leading group worship - suitable for Ordained and Laity. The resources are designed to enable leaders to explore the journey of life and faith through the twelve themes of of Timing, Unity, Providence, Creation, Growth, Service, Justice, Love, Life, Kingdom, Challenge and Light. There are 48 complete services based on the twelve core themes. For each of the themes, there is a suggested 'creative centre' to focus the group's thoughts. Within each of the themes, there are also prayer liturgies which include four homilies or Biblical reflections to develop the theme. There are also suggested points for group discussion and/or personal reflection. All of the material is suitable for dipping into or using in its entirety as suits the occasion and need. Ready to use straight from the page, they can be used for short, complete services or for opening worship as part of Church meetings or group gatherings. They are designed to give informal group leaders confidence and are created specifically to be able to be used in a variety of worship settings, and to encourage people to confidently lead in the worship of God.
