Crumbs of Hope: Prayers from the City
is a unique collection of prayers and poems. The authors suggest that worship in the inner city can be a source of hope and inspiration for all.

Not afraid to face the harsh realities of urban life, Crumbs of Hope celebrates the joy of Christian community and the presence of God in the most unexpected places.

The prayers are inspired by the symbols of the Eucharist and shaped by rapidly changing terraced streets. In a post-modern, post-industrial and increasingly global landscape, we are taken on a playful journey from the shattered peace of much contemporary life towards the resurrected dreams of Shalom.

Written with poignant humour which will appeal to individuals, groups and congregations, the reader is encouraged to adapt the material to reflect their own community’s stories, to incorporate current events and to be inspired to write their own prayers and Eucharists.
