Worship is more than what we do for an hour on Sunday — join us as we explore what worship is and share ideas and resources for connecting with God through our practice of worship through the week.

Pray As You Go: https://pray-as-you-go.org/ (also available as a mobile app)
Pray As You Go is a daily prayer session, designed to go with you wherever you go, to help you pray whenever you find time, but particularly whilst travelling to and from work, study, etc. A new prayer session is produced every day of the working week and one session for the weekend. It is not a ‘Thought for the Day’, a sermon or a bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer. Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection. [Brian’s note: this resource comes from the Jesuit community but broadly helpful across Christian traditions.]
Common Prayer: https://commonprayer.net/
Common Prayer is a tapestry of daily prayers inviting faith communities from around the world to pray, sing, and act together. At this site, you’ll find prayers for every evening, morning, and midday that celebrate the best of the Christian tradition and engage with the most pressing issues of our world today.
Some of the books I’ve found helpful for devotional purposes:
Celebration of Discipline – Richard Foster
Celebration of Discipline is a classic that explores multiple facets of an ongoing life of worship expressed in many different habits and exercises. From the ‘inward disciplines’ of Fasting, Prayer, Meditation and Study, to outward and corporate expressions; this book will encourage and invite us deeper into scripture-based practices for a life in relationship with God.
