Coming up in 2016...

There is some great stuff happening this year...

LST Youth and Worship Intensive

Sam really enjoyed teaching this three day intensive in January! We're also leading a retreat for teenagers and their parents near York at the end of February.

 

Church Events

Sam led Sunday worship and then a training afternoon at Great Shelford Free Church in January. Both he and Sara are at Christchurch Welwyn for a day in February. On 23rd Feb we're doing an evening for an LICC Hub in Balham.

Spring Harvest

We're excited about our role at Spring Harvest Minehead 3, leading a new incarnation of the PrayerHouse with different types of worship and prayer through the day. Check out the video below for more on the theme.

RESOUNDworship Songwriting Retreat

This is an ideal few days in June for anyone wanting to develop their songwriting. Sam also continues to co-host the RESOUNDworship podcast, and is part of the 12 Song Challenge for 2016.

Sara and Sam are continuing to work on a number of book and resource projects. We'll let you know as soon as anything is ready to be shared!

Alongside Bob's creative readings are a host of other resources - prayers, PowerPoints, poems, images... and these will be growing and developing as the months progress.  Launching at the beginning of Lectionary Year C means we've got a whole bunch...
