ROOTS Adult & All Age

Each issue of ROOTS Adult & All Age magazine provides two months' resources to support preparation for worship with adults and when all ages worship together.

How will ROOTS resource your weekly worship?

Each week ROOTS focuses on one of the four readings in the Revised Common Lectionary. This biblical focus is shared by the Children & Young People magazine so everyone explores together.
