Curation is a term usually used in the art world for the role of imagining and overseeing an exhibition or art experience. However the word is now being adopted by people in alternative worship, as it affords a very different and inventive way of thinking about how to lead a service or praise event. Rather than simply presiding over liturgy or fronting a band, curation involves negotiating between institutions and artists and making do with what is to hand to create something brilliant. The hope is that moments of epiphany will be experienced as God is invited to be and breathe in the space, and people make connections with their own lives and stories. Curating Worship is in two parts. The first considers the kind of thinking, skills and disciplines involved in good curation. The second consists of in depth interviews, which tease out from people who have curated amazing worship experiences around the world, the ideas and theories behind their approaches and the practical processes involved.

Review:

'Curating Worship is an excellent read that marks a moment of maturity in the emerging/alt worship movement. First in articulating a clear and unique theology of worship. Second in conducting a critical conversation. Third in genuinely modelling a collective approach to authoring.' --Steve Taylor

'This book is a treat before you even open it: the gorgeous cover transports you right into the middle of London urban culture. But although Jonny's own worship community is on the edge of London, the book itself translates into any urban culture and beyond.' --Maggie Dawn

'. . . an important resource for all those who want to develop creative and artistic and cultural accessible forms of worship that is challenging and justice orientated. I have read it almost in one go as it held me that much!' --Ian Mobsby
