Together for a Season is a practical travelling companion for the journey through the Church's year. Aimed at all those planning and leading worship and those working with children and adults in groups, it offers a rich array of creative material designed to bring to life the seasonal liturgy of Lent, Holy Week and Easter, including Pentecost.
Drawing on the material offered in Common Worship: Times and Seasons, this book includes:
There are three pathways through the material: the Lenten tree, Head, hands and heart and Stations of the cross. The book includes information on the origins of these symbols and suggestions as to how they might become a unifying thread in the worship of the whole congregation as they journey through Lent, Holy Week and Easter.
Woven throughout are suggestions for how to lift the liturgical texts off the page to produce engaging, multi-sensory worship that encourages the participation of the whole people of God.
The material is supported by a free CD-ROM, which includes illustrations and templates, the texts of services, and full-colour photographs to inspire your own worship.

Listen to Peter Moger discussing Crafting Common Worship.
'This book goes much further than a "how-to" guide. By providing a liturgical theology for all-age worship, it does the Church a great and much-needed service. Churches and worship planners up and down the land, when inspired by the informed creativity of this resource, will be better equipped to construct multi-dimensional, meaningful and engaging times of all-age worship.' - Tim Lomax, worship leader, author of "Liquid worship" and member of the Church of England's Liturgical Commission
'With service outlines, clear and accessible liturgy, talks and craft ideas, this is simply a really great resource.' - Nick Harding, Children's Mission Support Officer for the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham
A really helpful and varied range of approaches for a season which is not always easy to tackle ; encourages you to branch out in fresh directions.
