Preparing for worship

Worship is at the heart of all we do as Christians.  Whether as a worship leader or local preacher, or as a church steward responsible for a local arrangement in your church, we seek to do the best we can as we lead the people of God in worship.  This booklet offers a framework to help you, particularly if you’re just starting out leading worship.
