The Revd Dr Sandra Millar is Adviser for Work with Children and Families for the Diocese of Gloucester, where she inspires and supports parishes in their work with children and families. She was previously a vicar in the Dorchester-on-Thames team ministry and served her curacy in Barnet. Prior to ordination, she worked in marketing for various food and pet-food companies.
This book is packed with ideas from an author combining the experience of a parish priest and educationalist with passionate commitment to involving children at the heart of worship. The style is easy and the ideas often simple - but Sandra is a shrewd observer of contemporary culture and gives us imaginative options for worship today.

It's refreshing to have a practical book on all-age worship which doesn't assume that all churches have large numbers of children, access to technology and flexible spaces! This book will be useful to the tiny Norman village church as well as the flourishing suburban congregation - and all churches in between! A welcome addition to any worship leader's resource shelf.
