Do you want young people to recapture the meaning of worship and discover how to connect worship to their daily lives? Do you want to know how to use liturgy creatively without alienating the youth congregation? Have you ever wondered what the biblical truths are behind all-age worship and how to do it better?
From using image and film as worship aids to rethinking the rites and rituals of worship, this book, written by a range of experienced practitioners, contains an insightful mix of theology, case studies, practical information and questions to help churches rethink the way that they engage young people in worship.This is a thought-provoking read full of new ideas, key principles and inspiration for connecting young people with worship and developing their spirituality. Young People and Worship challenges the myths and clichés, emphasizes that there is no ‘one size fits all’ worship, and encourages youth workers to build up lifelong worshippers who will stay beyond their teenage years.
