What do you do if someone approaches you just before a service is due to begin and tells you that the minister is not coming? This book is provided for those who are asked at the last minute, ‘Can you take the service?’. It provides three complete services that can be led entirely from this book (including sermons and prayers of intercession), as well as guided sections in which the leader can use the church service books or printed pew-sheets that may have been prepared in advance. Appendices supply additional sermons and sets of prayers of intercession.
This is an essential for any vestry bookshelf and the second in the ‘Vestry Guides’ series. This edition uses the forms of text from Common Worship and the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible. Created by Paul Monk.
