Packed with practical ideas and original, ready-to-use seasonal material, this volume will be widely welcomed by hard-pressed ministers and worship leaders looking for fresh inspiration at a time of the year when there are always extra services to plan and as they seek new ways of enabling the familiar Christmas stories to be heard afresh amid the commercial frenzy.
From the beginning of Advent right through to Epiphany, this volume offers:
* Reflective introductions to the distinctive biblical emphases of each of the seasons
* Responsive gathering and opening prayers
* Interactive prayers of thanksgiving
* Seasonally themed intercessions
* Children's addresses and activities
* Sermon helps, scriptural meditations and reflections
* New seasonal prayers of consecration for communion
* Simple seasonal ceremonies, such as for lighting the Advent wreath
