Other than Evensong or Taize-style meditation, what else is there for evening prayer? Here is a resource that fills this gap to overflowing. It offers dozens of simple, ready-made outlines that are rich with ideas for using visual imagery, music, light and other symbols, with suggestions for getting everyone present actively involved.
Developed and used over many years in local churches by the authors, every idea in this book has been tried and tested. The result is an imaginative resource to inspire worship that is simple, memorable and beautiful. As well as round the year celebrations there are also extra ideas for public occasions, such as a time of tragedy, or for a peace vigil.
