Welcome to ROOTS!
What is ROOTS?
Worship and learning for the whole church
ROOTS publishes two lectionary-based, bi-monthly magazines: Adult & All Age and Children & Young People together with the supporting website, rootsontheweb.com.
A unique and comprehensive ecumenical resource package, ROOTS has been publishing worship and learning materials since 2002.
ROOTS provides materials for every Sunday of the year based on the Bible readings in the Revised Common Lectionary (Alternative materials are offered when the Church of England's Common Worship Lectionary differs.)
ROOTS resources are written by experienced ordained and lay practitioners from across the denominations. The materials can be adapted easily to fit different forms of worship, sizes of congregation and group, and ages.
Across all ages
Together, the ROOTS resources support worship and learning with adults, all ages together, and with groups of children and young people. The shared biblical focus helps your community to explore and grow in faith together.
Subscribing to the ROOTS magazines also gives you access to a huge library of resources at rootsontheweb.com including printable versions of prayers, scripts and templates; more than eight years of archive material; and PostScript, ROOTS' topical resource that helps to link the weekly readings with current affairs.
