The course aims

  • to inspire your worship in fresh ways

  • to equip you for the future

  • to introduce you to new resources

The programme of eight sessions will cover

  • The role of music in Christian worship

  • A musical timeline from biblical times to present

  • Wise choices of resources

  • Parish management - how to cope with or without musicians

  • The shape of the new normal

The course is held in an attitude of worship and prayer, showcasing different styles and genres of music throughout the programme. We will worship together online but also signpost participants to examples of worship in a breadth of traditions and styles to prompt reflection and discussion.
