eBook Worship Toolbox

eBook Worship Toolbox

Would you like to start building your own eBook Worship Toolbox?

Here’s a range of eBooks and digital resources that I personally find useful as a Lay Preacher when I’m preparing sermons and liturgy for services. I keep them handy on my Kindle eReader and computer.

  • The first section lists New Zealand worship resource books we have published and which you can either buy from us, or as Kindle eBooks from Amazon. (You can also buy our eBooks in ePub and PDF formats.)                                                                                                                  
  • You will then see links to PDF editions of Lectionaries for Year C and Year A that you can download for free from the NZ Methodist website.                                                                               
  • We can now also offer subscriptions to the Gathering material produced by the United Church of Canada in PDF format. There are four issues per year.                                                             
  • This is followed by links to three Bible translations (NRSV, The Message, NIV) and other stimulating, thoughtful theological Kindle eBooks that you can buy from Amazon.
