Curation: the act of imagining and overseeing an exhibition or art experience. Worship Curation: the act of imagining and overseeing a worship experience.

Worship curator Jonny Baker introduces this original approach to the design and sharing of worship. Rather than simply presiding over liturgy or leading a worship team, Baker and a new generation of leaders are negotiating between institutions and artists, crafting beauty for God out of whatever they’ve got on hand, helping people to make connections between their own lives and stories and the life and story of God.

Curating Worship is presented in two parts. The first considers the kind of thinking, skills and disciplines involved in good curation. The second part features in-depth interviews that tease out the ideas, theories and processes behind the creative approaches of people who are curating worship experiences around the world.

Jonny Baker is Mission Leadership and Communities Team leader for the Church Mission Society, and a leader at Grace, an alternative worship community based at St. Mary?s Church-Ealing in London. He is co-author (with Doug Gay) of Alternative Worship: Resources from and for the Emerging Church.
