Previous incarnations of this book have been used extensively throughout Britain and abroad by lay leaders, bishops, clergy trainers, youth groups, house groups, women's groups, prisoners' groups, worship groups – in fact absolutely anyone exploring transforming, creative and participative worship.
All the new material has been used and tested continually in the light of comment and experience. Some material is incorporated from the previous edition.
This fourth incarnation contains the following liturgies: five for morning, two for daytime, five for evening, two for Holy Communion, and one set of Prayers for Healing. There are also fourteen chants (full music versions) appropriate to the liturgies. A new feature is the introductory section, with hints on how to prepare for and use the liturgies to best effect. It includes guidelines for planning, leadership and environment, with pointers as to the use of music, the Bible, conversations and symbolic action.
