Partner with us for a new Easter Season resource!

So often, Easter Sunday goes by in a blur, and churches move on into other themes. We believe that Jesus' resurrection is more than a "happy ending" to Lent - it marks a glorious new beginning. In our broken, discouraged, post-pandemic world, we all need the risen life Jesus offers us. We need to go deeper into how to live as Resurrection People.

For this reason, we're creating resources to cover the weeks from Easter through to Ascension. In the same style as our popular Waiting and Wilderness material, the Church Service Pack will have outlines for seven services. This will include prayers, all-age ideas, readings, poems, sermon outlines, responses and more. New songs, written especially for this series, will be printed in the back. Accompanying downloadable videos, PowerPoints and scripts will be accesible via a web page.

There will also be a Personal Devotions book, with five readings per week. This allows congregations to carry on the journey throughout the week, going deeper into the themes. These can also be adapted for small group study.

The team share more of the vision in the video below.

How You Can Help

If you are in a position to help, we’d love you to consider it. We really believe in the potential of these resources to inspire and equip churches for resurrection living. In addition, we’ve not been able to run many events this year, so income is down from bookings. In order to keep resourcing the church we need help from those who can afford to do so.

Three ways you could help (See sidebar for more details):

1)     Pre-order copies of Resurrection People (£6 or £12).
2)     Sponsor part of the creation of these resources (suggested £250).
3)     Sign up to support us on a monthly basis for the next 6 months.

Our goal is to raise £5000. This will cover writing, design, creation of PowerPoints and videos, recording of new songs, typesetting, printing and more.

A few details

Engage Worship is a ministry of Music and Worship Foundation CIO, a registered charity in England and Wales (number 1175280). We are overseen by a board of trustees. All the money you give (minus small PayPal fees) goes to resourcing this ministry, primarily through employing Sara & Sam, Gemma & Timo to create resources, lead training and model worship ministry. Our main source of income is gifts from supporters.

If you pre-order our resources they will be sent to you as soon as they are available, we hope in January 2022. We cannot claim Gift-Aid on money from pre-ordered resources, but if you give a gift on top of that or simply sponsor the creation of a resource we can Gift-Aid this if you are a UK taxpayer and give your consent.
