Understanding Worship is an A4-sized study guide, designed to help all those who want to understand worship better. It engages with the Church of England's new Common Worship services, but goes much deeper than that, exploring the origin and meaning of Christian worship as it has developed through nearly 2000 years. It will be ideal for home groups, study groups, Lent courses, other small group settings, sermon ideas and for training worship leaders. Each session comprises: suggestions for worship in the group, discussion questions, visuals and photocopiable materials, four pages of material for the leader to use as the major content of each session.Material is provided for up to twelve sessions, covering: the development of Christian worship, the Christian year, scripture, music, space and movement, Holy Communions, services of the world, initiation, healing services, funerals and marriage.

Canon Anne Horton is Rector of Swithland in Leicestershire and Diocesan Director of Lay training.Canon Perran Gay is a Canon of Truro Cathedral and Director of Training in the Diocese.Review:
"This is an excellent A4 size study guide on Liturgy, its origins, development and current practice, cleverly designed for study groups...the contents are well presented and well written. Each session has a session plan with pages of information and visuals are designed with an overhead projector in mind. I recommend this strongly for clergy and for anyone with an interest in Liturgy or a curiosity about how our services are shaped or what may be the way to develop services in the future. It is a guide which may prove very useful in study groups this advent or perhaps during Lent. Highly recommended." —Church Review, October 2001
