A Timaru woman has released her third book.

Author Rosie Staite released All Age Worship Vol. 2 just over a week ago.

She said the first volume, released in 2013, had been aimed only at churches, but this one also targeted church schools and other groups interested in learning more about worship resources.

The book, which people could buy from her or the Timaru Christian Bookshop in Stafford St, included pictures, practical worship ideas and a section on grief.

The latter section was inspired by her more than 20 years of working at funeral and memorial services, she said.

Alongside the text were plenty of photos, which she had taken, mostly of South Canterbury scenes, she said.

Copies of her previous two books were almost sold out.

Mrs Staite has worked in various churches and organisations across Christian denominations – including Anglican, Presbyterian and Methodist – but is now self-employed as a resource minister and community celebrant.

All Age Worship Vol. 2 can be bought from Rosie Staite or at the Timaru Christian Bookshop in Stafford St.
