What is weWorship? It is a Youth and Young Adult project which aims to gather prayers, liturgies and worship contributions of young people from the length and breadth of our Wesleyan, Methodist and Uniting Family, over the next three years.
Why weWorship? Its purpose it to connect the stories and prayers of young , Methodist, Wesleyan and Uniting people across the globe in order to bring vibrant voice of young people into the very heart of our collective worship experiences.
How do we get involved? weWorship will run in 3 phases over 3 years. Each phase/year has its own theme which connects the worship contributions to the broader theme of the World Methodist Council in this quinquennium: Jesus Christ for the Healing of Nations. To make it fair, we will ask for contributions from different age categories (Please note the word count):
- Under 12yrs (+/- 200 words)
- 13yrs – 17yrs (+/- 300 words)
- 18yrs – 25yrs (+/- 300 words)
- 25yrs – 35yrs (+/- 300 words)
This year’s theme: Our Faith and Human Rights
Step 1: Write a prayer that connects your local congregation’s or even you or youth group’s concern for Human Rights within your unique context. It can be an individual or a group activity.
Step 2: Take a “selfie” with your youth group, Sunday School, youth cell group or young Adult group, and tell us about your community of faith and your minister (+/- 150 words)
Step 3: Email us, with your prayer, your “selfie” and your story. Don’t forget to tell us your age category. Your contribution does not have to be in English. Your contribution can be in Spanish, Portuguese, French and Korean.
This year’s contribution runs from the beginning of June (8 June 2014), the start of Pentecost until the end of September 2014 (30 September 2014)
Four contributions from each age category will be selected by the Youth and Young Adult executive committee for the weWorship E – book and will feature on the Youth and Young Adult webpage.
Happy creating, praying and writing!!!
