Everyone desires to involve children in the life and worship of the Church, and yet beyond giving them a candle to hold, we panic about what can actually do with them which will engage them and enable them to express their innate spirituality. How does the sacramental life of the Church touch the lives of the young? How can the traditions of the Church come alive for those who are more attuned to the X-Box and CBBC?This practical resource outlines a radical engagement with children and young people in worship using the sacramental life which is at the heart of the Church. It explores how participation in the Eucharist and other sacraments can be used to enable children to encounter the depths of the faith without dumbing down. Part One explores children's spirituality, ways to engage young people, the power of story telling, rituals for children and other tools for mission. Part Two offers real examples of sacramental and alternative worship with children including the Eucharist, baptisms, weddings and funerals.
