Covid-19 update
While public worship and gatherings have been restricted, we've re-presented our materials to offer:

  • support for church leaders in planning online services and groups
  • resources to enable households to worship together at home
  • help for youth leaders to run fun, creative and thought-provoking sessions online. 

ROOTS resources have always been highly adaptable, making it possible for churches to use them in many different ways. Now, as church communities explore new and changing ways of gathering, we'll be offering inspiring and practical ideas for both socially-distanced and online gatherings.

Whatever your 'new normal' looks like, we'll help you to make the most of our flexible resources.

All week, every week...

Each week, both sets of resources explore the same reading from the Revised Common Lectionary. This enables everyone to worship and learn as a whole church community - whether they're all together, or in their own age-specific groups. Find out more about ROOTS and the lectionary
