This a collection of links to worship resources which may be helpful to those leading worship. Please send suggestions for additions to Peter Campbell Smith.


RootsWide range of mainstream material for adults and children. URC is involved in its production, but most resources require a paid subscription
All age worship resourcesAll-age services, prayers, short talks, drama scripts, prayers and seminars. From an Anglican minister in Guildford
Bible Reading FellowshipPreviously called Barnabas in Churches, this site contains hundreds of ideas for children's and all-age work including drama, games, stories and much more.
The Bible ProjectShort-form, fully animated videos to make the biblical story accessible to everyone, everywhere.


The Revised Common LectionaryWe customarily - but not always - take our readings and theme from here.
Engage WorshipWide range of resources including illustrated readings, interactive prayers and much more. Includes 'Area 52' inspired by our good friend and inspiration Bob Hartman, containing resources keyed to each week's lectionary reading.
Fresh ExpressionsFresh Expressions are new forms of church that emerge within contemporary culture and engage primarily with those who don’t go to church. Website is perhaps more ideas than actual resources.
Better gatheringsHelpful examples of liturgy, prayers and other service elements. Most items are in a fairly formal, traditional style. From the Anglican Diocese of Sydney
HopeLots of ideas, examples and links to prayers. Hope is a UK evangelistic charity.
One VoiceWorship resources from New Zealand.

You can browse by subject or season, or search by keyword. Items were originally published in a fairly conservative US magazine.
Encircled by prayerURC prayer resources for all occasions including Communion.
re:worshipHuge library of resources and reflections for worship planners and leaders indexed by season, subject and Bible reference.
Church leaders' guidebookThis is written by and aimed at US ministers who generally have quite large congregations. It includes a lot of ideas and resources. See especially Worship Leaders' Guidebook.
