Introduction: Lead Worship by Design

Music and the Worship Leader

Involving young people

I use stories (often with some simple visual aids), picture books and play readings frequently in my services and find they hold all ages. I also lead the senior Women's Fellowship in our church (delightful ladies in their 80s and 90s). They have fun with doing short impromptu play readings and love big bright picture book stories with a message that's fits with the theme of the monthly meeting.

Once again, thank you very much for sharing this, Rosalie. When I began as a young clergy I didn't like the Women's Fellowships and CWI etc. Our worlds seemed so different. By the time I got a bit of maturity I realised that the 80-90 year old women were often better informed than anyone else. They had time and inclination to listen to the best of radio and tv. I also discovered they were likely the more liberal folk of a congregation having seen most of it before in terms of church life. They had lived long enough to become less dogmatic and more open. But is this also an aspect of congregational life fast vanishing or even gone? I wonder.
