All Age Services
"All age" worship has been something of a recurring theme for me.
I often get asked to lead the dreaded "family service" and have done a few trainings about them.
At the moment I'm just re-looking at some materials for a session with a local church next week and some teaching at Oasis College for youth ministry students later in the month.
There are many quotes about these services and how wrong people can get them,(often based on caricature) but this one seems to sum it up:
"It would, essentially, be a service focused on children and young people with a short sermon, plenty of action songs and confectionery would usually make an appearance somewhere!"
(Susie Mapledoram in Young People and Worship).
