Welcome to AREA 52 - the home of creative worship ideas for every week, relating to the Bible readings of the Revised Common Lectionary. You can browse the upcoming weeks, or search ahead for a specific date or Lectionary week, and then click on links to a growing collection of resources - scripts, poems, PowerPoints, prayers, and more. Feel free to use these in services, small groups and personal worship, and to adapt the ideas to suit your context.

AREA 52 is the brainchild of Bob Hartman - bestselling author and much loved storyteller, who just loves to help people engage with the Bible afresh.

Bob's stories and scripts are here alongside resources from other writers and creators, including the usual team. We would also like to thank the financial donors who have made these resources free for all.

If you are not familiar with the Revised Common Lectionary we have written an article on why and how you might make use of it. But whether your follow the Lectionary closely, dip into it for key points of the church year, or are just exploring it for the first time, we hope and pray these resources will be a blessing to you and your church.

Thanks to all who donated in
