A reflective video based on the book of Esther, and the idea that even though it may be difficult to sense or hear God in particular situations he is always present as his people live out his Kingdom.  It features a voice over by Abby Guinness.  The soundtrack is an...

Bible Refs: Psalm 103
Written By: Sam Hargreaves

This is a 'flow' or structure of worship, taking its shape from Psalm 103.  Sam wrote it for a session at the LST Summer School 2014, as an example of how worship can be shaped by the structure, themes and words of a specific psalm (read more about the process...

This is an extended time of prayer and reflection, based on 1 John 1:1-3.  Sara wrote this for a Methodist "Walk and Talk" family ministers conference which we led at, and including a few songs at the beginning it took us about 1.20 hours.  You could cut it down if...
