Musings of a Clergy Child

Musings of a Clergy Child

Growing into a faith of my own Nell Goddard £7.99

Vicarage life can be exciting, hilarious, scary, surreal and delightful... and that's just one day! Nell Goddard writes honestly and openly about the ins and outs of growing up in a Christian home, from her experience as the daughter of two vicars. With hilarious anecdotes, tough lessons and spiritual reflections from wrestling with faith, this book charts what it's like to live in the goldfish bowl of a vicarage, grow up in the shadow of your parents, lose your faith and find it again. With both rewritten blog posts and brand new material, this collection of tips, letters and musings will appeal not just to clergy children and their parents, but also to teenagers growing up in Christian homes, and to those who want to know what it's like to live a life of ministry you never really asked for.

God's Daughters

Loved, held, accepted, enough Hannah Fytche £6.99

In today's competitive, fast-paced world, everyone is under pressure to be better or at least 'good enough'. The pressures are particularly acute on young people and this book uniquely presents the perspective of a young woman in her late teens, speaking to her own age group. She offers Bible-linked reflections on a range of relevant issues, from exam stresses and family relationships to being a 'good enough' Christian - and goes on to consider the difference that a thought-through, grace-filled Christian faith can make.

God's Church My Place

What it means to belong to a Christian community Steve Tilley £6.99

What does being involved in church mean in practical terms? Christian communities are full of people exercising ministries, doing useful work and, well, helping others. How do we find our place? God's Church, My Place is a book for people who want to serve God and need to work out the where, when and how of that. It covers important topics such as church structure, worship, prayers, serving and the precarious state of the coffee - and all done thoroughly biblically. It will not push you into leadership but value your membership.
