Worship At Home Tree

The tree in front of the hospital door is dancing.
Dancing to music that is both silent and loud.
A wind fed ballet of ecstatic mayhem.
The pirouetting branches soar high then fall bowed.
Whirring erratically together in a waltz of sheer joy.
Rejoicing in the ecstasy of breezes, sunlight, sap.
Green leaves and blossom flying skywards.
Then settling slowly into the root's sumptuous lap.

And we who observe it through the clinical windows of the ward.
Listening to the hygienic machine bleeps, bed calls and efficient murmur of care
Whilst contemplating the pain of another round of tests.
Imagining the deadly samba of the virus that we know is there.
In the trees performance we get a glimpse of another melody.
In the wild festivity of creation God promises to hold us tight.
For his movement can lead us through steps of rejoicing or lament.
But even the darkest solemn music has moments of sheer delight

Seasons BookletSEASONS booklet PDF - Resources for 4 Services produced by SCALLOP

Here is a resource for Local Worship produced by SCALLOP Churches.
It is a booklet with IDEAS for a series of 4 services based on "Seasons", each of which can be presented by worship leaders or the local church.
These are suggestions and the outlines are not comprehensive, but it is hoped they might provide a starting place!

Print on both sides - flip on short edge - then fold into a booklet.

EnvironmentEcology / Environment service medley - Resources for two services

These services can be used to precede discussions on our responsibility as church for the environment and our response through engaging with A Rocha Eco-church.

This is a resource for local worship. It is a document containing two services, the parts of which can be used as a pick-and-mix or as a basis for your own inspiration.
