There are links, below, to resources for reflective services, developed by the Dassett Magna Group of Parishes, which interleave Bible readings with songs/hymns, on a variety of themes.
For most themes, there is a series of paired readings, in which Old Testament passages are illuminated by and provide the background to New Testament passages, with suggested songs/hymns to enable the congregation to respond to what they have heard. Some themes include reflections or readings adapted for several voices.
Suggestions have been made for which passages might be read by the person leading the service, and for songs/hymns that tie in with the readings. Times of silence after the readings can be helpful. Obviously these suggestions, like all of the materials on this website, can be adapted to local circumstances.
