The Nursery Rhyme Mass bills itself as ‘Making eucharist accessible to children: awe and wonder in a sacramental encounter without dumbing down.’ It succeeds brilliantly.
The text is rewritten to be accessible to children and set to well know tunes, mostly nursery rhymes that children will already know.
I know! I know! – – you’d expect it to be a little cringe worthy at least, but it isn’t.
This could offer a wonderful way to introduce the eucharist to Messy Church for example.
Of course this is not yet an authorised Anglican litugical text, so use appropriately.
