Feedback from Readers

One of our biggest challenges in church today is finding ways to be a community of all ages, learning and growing together. We are often very good at creating separate programmes and events for different age groups, but it can be difficult to be God’s family of people of all ages and spiritual stages. We are beset by questions of who we should cater for in our worship, prayer and teaching time. We wonder how we can set the scene and create a sacred space that whole families can enter, and that each person can relate to.

With these challenges in mind, I was thrilled to read Rosie’s book, Tried and True Tips for All Age Worship with all age worship services. Each one has been successfully run, and honours and disciples people of all ages. Rather than just being a collection of ideas for children, youth and adults, this book provides ideas for worshipping, learning, and enjoying each other and God in all age services. I’m so thankful that Rosie has o ered us the experience, wisdom and understanding that she’s gained in running all age services in Anglican Churches here in Aotearoa, New Zealand.
