Gathering: Resources for Worship Planners
Published four times a year, Gathering is a worship planning magazine for ministers and lay leaders, music directors, and United Church of Canada worship committees.
Current Issue: Pentecost 2, 2016
This issue celebrates the 80th anniversary of the ordination of Lydia Gruchy. Look back at Gruchy’s life and see how her ordination has shaped our denomination. What did it mean at that point in our history to expand the idea of who led worship? What has it meant since, and what will it mean into the future? What does it mean to minister to the whole people of God? What does it mean to equip the saints? What is the role of ministry?
Prayers for Worship are also available for download. Free to Gathering subscribers—with unlimited access—using a code given with each issue. Non-subscribers pay $4.95 for a one-time use.
Gathering now publishes four issues a year:
- Lent/Easter (Ash Wednesday to last in Easter)
- Pentecost 1 (Pentecost Sunday to Labour Day)
- Pentecost 2 (Season of Creation to Reign of Christ)
Bulk subscriptions are also available.
