PraxisNorth Relaunch Event: Creative Worship Outside

Worship is the only activity of the Church which will last into eternity. Worship enriches and transforms our lives. In Christ we are drawn closer to God in the here and now. This shapes our beliefs, our actions and our way of life. God transforms us as individuals, congregations and communities. Worship provides a vital context for mission, teaching and pastoral care. Good worship and liturgy inspires and attracts, informs and delights. The worship of God can give hope and comfort in times of joy and of sorrow. Despite this significance, we are often under-resourced for worship.

For this reason, Praxis was formed in 1990, at the instigation of the Liturgical Commission of the Church of England, the Alcuin Club, and the Group for the Renewal of Worship. They offer practical guidance, inspiration and quality training events:
• To enrich and inform practice of worship, both traditional and contemporary, in the Church of England
• To resource congregations, lay leaders and clergy in their understanding of and approach to worship
• To provide opportunities in which different worshipping traditions of the Church can meet and engage creatively with one another

Tuesday 5 July 2022, 7 – 9 pm on Zoom

  • Liturgy and worship practitioners across the northern dioceses to come together.

  • An ideal opportunity for clergy and lay ministers to share ideas and expertise. 

  • What does creative worship outside look like? 

  • An opportunity to share experiences of 'Forest Church', 'Pimms 'n' Hymns', 'Wild Compline' etc. 

If you'd be willing to offer a short presentation on the theme (max 15 mins) contact Revd Helen Bent: / 07786030399.
