Which members of your congregation, or of your wider community, might share their gifts with you at All-Age Worship? Here is one example of a way in which such a link might be made, in order to give you a flavour of how a visiting speaker might be incorporated into the usual service.
From this you can see that it is not difficult for a visitor to make a real contribution to the Family Service, in a way that links naturally into one aspect of Christian teaching. Many members of your congregation will have gifts or life interests that could be incorporated into a service, and would probably be very pleased to be asked. Appropriate support must be offered, and no pressure exerted on people who genuinely would not feel able to take the "centre stage" in this way. For those who do feel able to accept your invitation, however, the experience can be enriching for them as well as for the rest of the congregation. Every member of the Body of Christ has a part to play, in the Family Service as well as in every other arena.
