Since the introduction of Common Worship, demand has
been extremely high for material to help parishes use Common
Worship with children. Designed to meet that need, this
fully-revised edition of My Communion Book helps children
gain a better understanding of Holy Communion.
This all-age resource for children and families is primarily aimed
at 4 to 8 year olds. It can be used initially as a sharing book,
adult and child reading together, but children may use it at times
on their own. Taking the child through the service, the book
explains key words and asks questions that relate directly to the
child, helping them to engage with the service of Holy Communion in
a fun, interesting and meaningful way.

number of inspiring ideas on ways to use the material creatively.

inviting children and their families to gather in worship. Using
John and Betty's enormously helpful book will be an invaluable tool
as churches seek to make the plea a reality."
