This page explains how to use the pre-defined Templates in ServiceBuilder. For information about how to create your own templates, please click here.

  • Start Servicebuilder
  • Select one of the pre-defined templates. There are three different types of templates

    Regular Services
    Occasional Services (like weddings, baptisms and funerals)
    Seasonal Services (like Christmas and Easter)

  • Select a service from one of the three drop-down lists.

  • Enter the Date of the service and press the "Next" buttton. Your selected template will now display on screen. For example, if you choose the "Morning Prayer" template, you will see something like this.


    (AAPB p.18)

    Opening Hymn Song:
    If the Song is not in the list, please enter it in the box below
    introduction You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honour and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.
    Revelation 4:11

  • The template above contains
    a text area (so that you can write your own welcome),
    a drop-down list (so that you can select the song)
    a rubric (instruction to the user) with a second text area for entering a song not on the default list, and
    static text (the text of Rev 4:11).

    To use the template, fill in the text areas and select an item from the drop down lists.
  • Once this process is complete, Click the "Build Service" button
