About the Author

Jan Berry is a tutor in Practical Theology at Luther King House, Manchester, where she teaches pastoral studies, liturgy and worship, and feminist theology and spirituality on an MA and undergraduate programme in contextual theology. She is a minister of the United Reformed Church, and has considerable experience in creating and writing material for worship, particularly with women's groups. She has previously worked in local church ministry and university chaplaincy.


"Berry pursues a wide-ranging discussion of issues involved in the construction and enactment of ritual and the effects of such ritual making. The interweaving of detailed descriptions of these case studies with discussion of theory related to ritualizing makes for a fresh and stimulating contribution to this field of study." - Practical Theology
