Sunday worship, baptisms, weddings and funerals are the shop window of the church and there is nothing more important for mission than getting them right. How do we help congregations and occasional visitors encounter God through them? This practical guide draws upon the treasury of the church's tradition and experience to establish good practice and enrich understanding. Part One explores the changing landscape in which we live and the place of worship within it. Part Two asks how our churches can be more welcoming and provides a handy 'worship audit'. Part Three focuses on the main services (CW & BCP Communion, Evensong and the pastoral services) and how to bring these liturgies to life. Part Four helps us to maximise the opportunities offered by the seasons of the Christian year. Part Five focuses on using the non-verbal elements of worship well - liturgical colours, candles, oil, incense, icons etc Part Six is an extensive glossary designed to answer every question you might ever ask about worship and liturgy.
