Many churches produce their own service sheets or booklets, whether for regular use or for special occasions such as weddings, confirmations or carol services. This practical book offers a range of suggestions to help in the process of putting together such materials - from planning to proof reading and beyond. It includes ideas about:
- Design and layout
- Liturgical principles
- How to use illustrations
- Practical matters like paper and printers
- How to make the structure clear
There are hints and tips about how to avoid common pitfalls and produce clear, user-friendly orders of service. A range of real-life sample layouts are provided to illustrate best practice. The ideas in this book will inform and equip anyone compiling their own service sheets or books, enabling them to produce materials that are both elegant and appropriate for their setting and purpose.
"Although explicitly written for an Anglican readership, there is much good material for those in other denominations... I approached this book with some scepticism, but read it with increasing enthusiasm. Warmly recommended." Stuart Bell, in The Methodist Recorder, 14 Dec 2000
