Liturgies for Advent and Christmas, Lent and Easter, Transfiguration, Pentecost, Trinity Sunday, All Saints’, St Columba’s Day, Father’s Day; on hunger, economic witness, peacemaking, the environment, pilgrimage, welcome, hospitality and friendship. Includes a blessing liturgy for a marriage or partnership, a wedding/partnership ceremony and resources for a memorial event.
Full communion services and shorts acts of worship; liturgies for small groups and all-age gatherings; worship rooted in church life and the Iona Community’s resident group on Iona, in social justice and pastoral work. So – as always with the Iona Community – worship which is contextual, with a strong justice and peace edge.
Originally published as single digital downloads by Wild Goose, these are now all brought together for the first time in the second of at least two Big Books of resources and liturgies.

God of the rhinoceros and the midge,
God of the Large Hadron Collider and the iPhone,
help us to sense your presence in and through all things.
God whose grace is sufficient for all our needs,
help us to be people of compassion, justice and peace.
(Norman Shanks, from ‘A liturgy for the Feast of the Transfiguration’)
