Bursting with tried and tested ideas, here is a unique aid to enabling young and old alike to participate creatively in worship throughout the Christian year. From Advent to Pentecost, Crafts for Creative Worship is teeming with exciting suggestions for involving the whole church family in practical activities that will bring to life the scripture readings and enrich the liturgy. Downloadable artwork and templates, complete with step-by-step instructions are given for a year-long range of creative ideas and activities.
This resource is full of simple ideas for making things to enrich the great celebrations of the church year: Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, Pentecost and other seasonal celebrations along the way such as Mothering Sunday and Harvest; paper banners and altar frontals, gift bags full of reminders of the season for everyone to take home; and, paper kites and doves and balloons for Pentecost, for example, simple recipes for festive treats, easy songs and rounds that can be learnt on the spot and sung by all ages. It is now reissued with a downloadable CD-ROM which includes the templates and instructions for all artwork.
