Gathering for Worship
Gathering for Worship. Patterns and Prayers for the Community of Disciples. Author(s): Baptist Union of Great Britain, Christopher Ellis, Christine Ellis. Although not a denomination with a liturgical tradition, the Baptist Church does have a considerable number of service for which some set form of words is needed - holy communion, weddings and funerals, obviously, but also thanksgiving and dedication for a baby; adult baptism; receiving into church membership; the commissioning of deacons, elders, youth workers and other church officers; ordination of ministers; dedication of a new church building and many more such occasions. It has been more than two decades since the last such service book was published and this draws on the liturgical renewal that has taken place in recent years to create texts that are both beautiful and versatile.
