Publisher's Description

Arising out of many year's experience of helping to lead local church worship and counselling work in a children's hospice, this is the first of three new volumes that focuses on the occasions when many non-churchgoers visit a church: for christenings, weddings, funerals, and memorials. These rites of passage present key opportunities for occasional visitors to encounter the Christian faith. If they are imaginatively handled a lifelong interest can be aroused. If they are insensitively done, people can be put off for life.

This practical resource offers prayers, forms of words and many tried and tested ideas for creating rituals that give support at a time of great need following a death. It will enable the creation of rites (based on the authorized liturgical texts) that are beautiful, memorable and meaningful. Particular help is given for that most difficult of pastoral challenges, the death of a child and the care of the bereaved family.

Editorial Reviews

'This is a useful, sensitive, creative resource and is a welcome addition to the existing available material. It compliments the more traditional formats of church liturgy and brings a personal flexible and creative touch. '
-- The Miscarriage Association
'This is a wide-ranging book for all whose task it is to preside at funerals, especially for those of us who do this frequently. Many ideas in this book are fresh and new. Engaging with these ideas will help to renew our pastoral approach to the the taking of funerals and prevent a sense of staleness from creeping in. This is a book in the best tradition of creating and adapting liturgy for pastoral needs and circumstances'.
-- Fairacres Chronicle
