Card deck helps young worshippers in spades

'LecDeck" is a deck of 52 cards, each containing a liturgical Bible reading, together with a focus for prayer, weekly challenge, and questions for contemplation and discussion.

The idea came from the Bristol Diocese Youth and Children's Adviser, Dan Jones, after recognising a lack of youth-based resources focusing on the lectionary - a selection of scripture readings appointed for public worship in the Anglican Church.

The discipleship tool has been created for use at youth clubs, home groups, and Christian Unions as well as for personal study.

Jones said he hoped to celebrate the "glories of the Church of England's liturgical worship" through the multi-functional resource and help young people find "depth and meaning in the lectionary readings".

"As part of the rich Anglican heritage, the lectionary provides pre-selected Bible readings to use during worship or personal study throughout the year," he added.

"Our hope is that LecDeck enables young people to grow deeper in their relationship with God."
