Liturgy on the Edge: Pastoral and Attractional Worship

Liturgy on the Edge: Pastoral and Attractional Worship
This book is rooted in the understanding that every local church exists to celebrate, enjoy and embody God being with us - the heart of all life and faith, but also to stay on the edge, close to the community it serves, and to become known for practising compassion, understanding and love.

Seeing worship as the heart of faithfulness, the source of human identity and the foundation of justice, this book offers pratical insights on creating worship that is characterized by engaging dialogue and active encounter. An experienced team of lay and ordained practitioners describe and reflect on creating services that enable the church's mission to the community. It explores liturgy on the edge of faith, as in outreach services; liturgy on the edge of life, as in pastoral services; liturgy on the edge of the year, as in specil annual occasions; and liturgy on the edge of the world, as webcasting, podcosting and broadcasting. This practical companion to creating pastoral liturgies arises from the vibrant ministry of St Martin-in-the-Fields and is designed to aid local ministry teams in devising forms of worship outside and beyond the scope of authorised church liturgy, yet in sympathy with its purposes and structures. It includes outline liturgies for: * regular pastoral services, such as an informal Eucharist, worship for small groups or for a church away-day, a dementia-friendly service, a healing service, interfaith ceremonies. * acute pastoral needs, such as services for communities affected by local tragedy, those experiencing loss through violence. * outreach services in the open air or welcoming people into sacred space. * special services though the year for Homelessness Sunday, Prisoners Week, Holy Week, Harvest, Remembrance, a community carol service and more. Each section is introduced with a reflection on theory and practice, and each item has a commentary on theological, liturgical and pastoral choices made with the aim of enabling practitioners to adapt and create liturgies for their own contexts.
