Over the last ten years, Common Worship has introduced a vast range of structures and rich resources for worship. However, many worship leaders remain unclear as to exactly what Common Worship contains and unsure as to how they can use it.
Drawing on Peter Moger's wealth of experience as the Church of England's National Worship Development Officer, Crafting Common Worship is a highly practical guide to how to make the most of Common Worship.
It includes extensive case studies on how Common Worship has been used in various contexts to create engaging and mission-focused worship, including Holy Communion, Baptisms, Marriages and Funerals.
"Ten years into the Common Worship project it's really important that we have the best advice available to help us use this powerful tool that's been put into our hands. Crafting Common Worship does just that. It's a brilliant combination of explanation about the principles of Common Worship and examples of how it can be played out in a range of contexts.
"It's just what worship planners and leaders need for every aspect of worship from Eucharist to Evensong, Funerals to Marriages and Baptisms to Services of the Word of every kind. So if your business is anything to do with worship, Crafting Common Worship is definitely worth buying, reading and using." - The Rt Revd Dr Christopher Cocksworth, Bishop of Coventry
