Brian Wren and Susan Heafield ("Hayfield") are partners in marriage and ministry.

We'd love to hear from you. Enjoy!
This box contains a variety of items for use in worship – called “recipes” because they involve things that are acted out (=cooked!) as well as said. Each item took at least a week to research, write and edit. Each was then “field-tested” in a congregation and revised again to post on this web site. Once you download the item, you may make as many copies as you need, provided you say somewhere that it is copyright © 2012 by Brian A. Wren and used by permission.

Preparing each item and keeping it on the site take time and money. So we offer each “recipe” with two options: “FREE” or “DONATE.” If you are able to to, press "DONATE $4.95" to help cover the cost of development; otherwise, download it for free, with our blessing.

First Batch in the Box:
Partners In Marriage - A Wedding Service
Jonah Retold - A Communal Drama
Glimpses of Holiness - Scripture Readings w/many Names and images of God
In Such A World As This - An Ancient-Modern Psalm and Prayer
