Baptism, weddings and funerals bring the Church of England into close contact with hundreds of thousands of people every year.
The ministry offered by local churches at these key times of life has been the subject of a widespread study with the aim of fostering best practice and deepening theological and biblical understanding of the occasional offices.
Here, Sandra Millar, who led this study and has presented its findings to over half of all dioceses so far, shares its contents and offers many practical suggestions - often from local parish practice- for enriching the quality and depth of pastoral support offered at these highly significant moments.
Grounded in rigorous research, this volume includes the research findings, biblical reflection, practical ideas and questions for reflection.
