Worship resources for Lent, Holy Week &  Easter

Stages On The Way is the second “book of bits” for worship produced by the Wild Goose Worship Group. Like its predecessor, Cloth For The Cradle (which features resources for Advent, Christmas & Epiphany), it contains a wealth of different types of worship resources: litanies, meditations, monologues, poems, prayers, readings, scripts and symbolic actions. In Stages On The Way, Jesus’ road to the cross and beyond is traced, step by step, through Lent, Holy Week and Easter. The prime purpose of the book is to resource worship which enables people to sense something of the hope, apprehension and desolation which Jesus’ friends felt in Lent and Holy Week, before being ambushed by the wholly unexpected, deep joy of Easter In short, to experience Easter.

Drawn from the work of the Wild Goose Worship Group, whose innovative and highly participative style of worship is widely admired and imitated, Stages on the Way‘s range and diversity offers a unique source of elements for lay and clergy worship planners and enablers. All of the material has been used in celebrations and services of public worship, but little has been previously published.

Several indices, including Sources of suggested chants and sung responses, Major Feasts of the Seasons with their themes and Readings for the Seasons optimise the usefulness of the materials.
