Books for the Summer

As the Summer Holidays approach in the UK, you might want to order some reading and resources from us...

Outdoor Worship
Mary Hawes of Child in the Midst wrote: "With summer on the way, Outdoor Worship is a great companion for families or mixed age groups to break away from screens, get out into nature and engage with God's world. Each of the 23 themes has activities, worship ideas and a field notes page for jotting down discoveries. The book could be used in many ways - families on holiday, home group outings, church picnics, church family fun days.... A great resource!"

Together with God
This great book by Ed Macenzie and Gareth Crispin interviews 14 families (including Sam & Sara) on how they have developed family worship in the home. Ed recently wrote an article for Premier Christianity on this topic, and there are rumours of a possible podcast...

Worship Colouring Book
An ideal resource to relax with on holiday, which also allows you to reflect on biblical themes. Make use of our multibuy discount and get some for friends and family too.

How Would Jesus Lead Worship
Our book on how to lead gathered worship in a Christ-like way received this five-star review on Good Reads: "This was a wonderful book. Is a great resource book for church leaders." (Margaret Fraleigh). You can download the whole first chapter as a pdf to "try before you buy".

This survey is now closed - thank you to all those who took part! We've peeked at some of the answers and they are both interesting and encouraging. We look forward to analyze the responses properly and hope to present the results to you in some way.  We also pulled a name out of a (virtual) hat, and Anne from Spain is the lucky winner of our goodie bag - congratulations!

LOVED being at Spring Harvest Minehead 3! We were hosts at the Alternative Celebration. Here are some of the resources we used: Sara created some visual reflections based around Luke 10. Sam made a video based on Exodus 3 and the theme of Holy Ground, which we used on Night 1. In practice, we discovered that with a sub-bass speaker the sound is a bit muddy, so if you use this you may want to tweak the bass (we'll try and put a remixed version up soon). We used John Leach's "Heart, Soul, Mind...

We really enjoyed being back in the UK for the last week of Feb 2016. The fun began with a day at Christchurch Welwyn, leading the morning service and then doing and afternoon of workshops. It culminated in a celebration service, featuring the music and creativity of the people we'd been training all through the day. Pastor Simon fed back: "Thank you both for an amazing day yesterday. It was very encouraging and helpful, and hopefully we can apply a lot of the things you said in our worship." Next, on the Monday we had an absolute blast sharing with about 40...

Area 52
Instrumental Music for Reflection
