An all-round companion for everyone involved in the ministry of serving. Servers play a key part in the celebration of the Eucharist and knowing what to do is only half the story,- how to serve in a dignified way that adds to worship and doesn't detract from is equally important. This guide includes instruction on: relating to the clergy and the congregation, and working as a team; how to cultivate one's own spiritual space; knowing your way round the sanctuary;tools of the trade; movement, posture and processions,the Eucharist step-by-step;the liturgical year, and prayers and personal preparation for serving.

Brendan Clover, Chris Verity

BRENDAN CLOVER was Precentor of Bristol Cathedral and is now Senior Provost of the Woodard Corporation, which owns the largest group of independent Anglican schools in the world. CHRIS VERITY is a server at Bristol Cathedral.

"Being a Server Today is a goldmine of information. It covers the sacristy, the liturgical year, and the different serving roles. It gives guidance on the mechanics of funerals and said or sung masses. The real strength of this book, however, is its concern with prayer: servers are to "cultivate an inner stillness" in all that they do. (...) any server would derive immense nourishment as well as practical help from Being a Server Today. The Revd Robert Mackley, Assistant Curate of Our Most Holy Redeemer and St Mark, Clerkenwell, London, Church Times, 10 February 2006.
