Prayer Journey

Connect your Sunday services with Monday life - from their biblical foundations through to practical ideas - with this leader’s pack, book, and small group series.

Sunday Worship has the potential to transform our daily actions.

Help each and every person in your church recognise the value of their work, activities, and relationships in God’s economy. The retired-busy crowd, the living-life-to-the-full crowd, the uncertain-in-faith crowd, the juggling-work-and-family crowd: come together and re-dedicate it all to God on Sundays. Make your Sundays about breathing in the Spirit of God, so you can breathe out the Spirit throughout the week.

In contrast to common service ideas based around bolstering personal devotion, church involvement, or family life, Whole life Worship offers ways to focus on energising and releasing the congregation to live for Christ out in the world. Have people regularly reporting back about the ways they’ve put their faith into practice at work, at home, on their frontline. Watch the depth and breadth of discipleship grow as you connect the dots between what happens on a Sunday and the rest of the week.

Whole Life Worship was created in partnership with Sam and Sara Hargreaves, directors of Engage Worship. The resources are accessible separately and yet work powerfully together to inspire leaders and their congregations with a fresh, creative experience of worship that equips people for all of life.

Whole Life Worship Journey Pack

Brimming with creative ideas and fresh approaches, this includes a workbook of five adaptable service plans that can be used as a sequential set or as a treasure chest of ideas, accompanied by a USB pen loaded with the materials needed for each service.

Each service includes:
– Animated video introductions (also downloadable)
– Interactive gathering and response ideas and all-age activities
– Prayer and reading suggestions with scripts
– Sermon background and notes on a core passage
– Song suggestions including PowerPoints and lyrics
– Companion small group Bible studies (PDF)

Five services teach these themes:

01

Worshipping engages our whole lives

-

02

Worshipping offers us fresh insight

-

03

Worshipping transforms our everyday actions

-

04

Worshipping inspires our everyday speech

Whole Life Worship Study Guide

The ideal companion to the Journey Pack, this five-session series of small group Bible studies explores the connections between worship and everyday life.

Each session explores a Bible passage and its implications for worship in our Monday to Sunday lives. These work with short animated video introductions (the same as those included in the Journey Pack) to prompt discussion, and include ideas for prayer and take-away actions.

The accompanying videos are free to download further down this page.

Whole Life Worship Book

Whole Life Worship by Sam and Sara Hargreaves with Neil Hudson, makes a passionate case for worship services that engage with people’s Monday to Saturday lives. It offers biblical foundations, practical frameworks, and a wealth of usable examples to fire the imagination of church and worship leaders, whatever your tradition or stream.

‘Packed with thoughtful provocation and practical innovation, this is a vital book for all those who lead in our churches.’ - Krish Kandiah, Author and Founding Director of Home for Good
‘Sam and Sara offer an important corrective to twenty-first entry church worship… the message is revolutionary, if we will only take it on board.’ - Mike Pilavachi, Co-founder of Soul Survivor

Whole Life Worship Prayer Journey

This 40-day prayer journey gives you and your church an easy way to begin praying, with daily prompts direct to your email or via the Bible app YouVersion. It reflects on how Christ can be glorified in our gathered worship together, and our scattered, daily worship, wherever we are Monday to Saturday. Prayer journeys offer encouragement and solidarity, since everyone signed up starts together. You’ll be part of a virtual community of thousands more Christians, receiving the same prompts as they face their own challenges and opportunities. Find out more.
