Women of Holy Week

As we prepare to enter Holy Week, I wanted to post something about the wonderful collection of stories by Paula Gooder, which explore the events of Holy Week and Easter through the eyes of nine of the women. It was my absolute joy and privilege to provide the artwork for the book.
You can buy the book directly from Church House Publishing (and from other online and high street bookshops) and you can also download the pictures (for a limited time only) so you can use them in your own personal reflections or in Church over Holy Week and beyond.

Making the most of your child’s baptism

baptismbook.jpgI’m delighted to say that the second edition of my booklet, Making the Most of your Child’s Baptism – a gift for all the family, will be published by SPCK on 21st January 2016.

The new edition is in a slightly larger format, with a slightly larger typeface – it’s an easy read for families, with lots of lovely pictures (the design work by SPCK’s Sarah Smith is beautiful, by the way). As in the first edition, there are excerpts from the liturgy, explanations and explorations of the words and actions, things to think about and practical ideas to try at home to help the whole family grow in faith.

This second edition is also fully revised to include the new ‘accessible language’ liturgical material published a few months ago, as well as still containing all the Common Worship ‘default’ settings.

You will be able to buy copies direct from SPCK, or from Eden, Amazon etc. Enjoy!
