Liturgies and Resources for Christ-Centred Hospitality

A collection of creative liturgies, prayers, readings, reflections, recipes and programme ideas on the theme of hospitality that (the blurb on the book says) is ‘very reminiscent of Wild Goose resources from Iona’.

The table is a central image in Christianity:  feasts appear frequently in Jesus’ parables, the central act of Christian worship takes place around a table and the Bible describes heaven as a place of banqueting.

Building on this inviting imagery, Dilly Baker offers ready-made resources for the whole year:

  • A Welcome over the Threshold (New Year to the end of Lent)
  • Conversations with a Stranger (Holy Week and Easter)
  • In God’s Company (summer and autumn)
  • A Place at the Table (Advent and Christmas)

Ideal for churches in mission, this is a creative and imaginative resource with something for everyone.

  1. Mary Austin

    ‘Another excellent worship resource from Canterbury Press who are renowned for the quality of their publications in this field. A Place at Table offers liturgies, prayers, gospel reflections, meditations, ideas for retreats, all age groups and even seasonal recipes around the central theme of hospitality. The book takes us through the festivals of the church year but also picks out other more secular days of significance to mark – any opportunities where that central theme of the Christian faith, hospitality can make its mark. This resource is down to earth with an invitation to all to gather round Christ’s table at its very core. Suitable for both public worship and private prayer this is a must for the shelves of anyone involved in preparing acts of worship, retreats or quiet days.’ – MARY AUSTIN, GOODBOOKSTALL REVIEW.
