LST events and releases

London School of Theology, where Sam works has programme leader of the Theology & Worship course, has been busy!  He's just finished writing a module on Issues in Contemporary Christian Worship for the new MA in Integrative Theology, with options in Music & the Arts, and Christian Worship Studies.

The LST Choir has just released a single called Voice (video below, single available from iTunes and other digital outlets).  In the Autumn they will be releasing an accompanying set of interviews and study notes, so do look out for this!

LST is also hosting two amazing conferences relating to music and songs in the Autumn - firstly the National Worship Songwriters day, organised by and featuring LST lecturers such as Old Testament expert Miriam Hinksman.  Here is a little video to explain more, and more info and booking are here.

Finally, in October Geraldine (Latty) Luce is gathering people who love community singing for a day called SING!  She'll be sharing her experience of running community choirs, and exciting us to sing together.  You can get more information and book on this site.

We had a blast at #YWS14 this past weekend.  There was such a great range of speakers, and we were encouraged to offer broad, creative worship with the engageband plus six London School of Theology Music and Worship students.

We're thrilled that Youthwork Magazine's reviewer (Gemma Wilkinson, a full-time youthworker in Newbury) gave our Engage with God DVD a five star review!  She starts by saying that she was a bit disappointed to get this in the post as her previous experiences of this kind of resource has left her, and her young people "bored, embarrassed, or distracted.  However," she continues, "I was in for a wonderful surprise." "Far from being boring, the videos are well paced and engaging.  The content varies widely between movies, including a mixture of song, scriptre, reflection, Lectio Divina and spoken responses.  Each video captured...

The Engage Worship Day on 15th Feb was a blast!  300 people decended on Luton for a day of exploring the theme 'engaging EVERYONE in worship'.  Some highlights for me included: the whole congregation doing sign language along to Come You Thankful People; the Junk Tank percussion group, choir and orchestra making a joyful noise; a group of children who spontaniously began praying for healing for one lad; the BIG Ministries team making us laugh and think with their sketches; the whole range of ages,...

Booking for 15th Feb Engage Worship Day in Luton is now closed.  You will be able to get tickets on the door, but workshops will be limited due to room capacities.
