Engage Worship Day 2015 - SLOW DOWN

We're really excited about the Engage Worship Day for 2015 happening on the 21st Feb in Luton!  Here's a little teaser promo you can share:

Our theme will help us strip away some of the good-but-not-essential elements which crowd in on our church services, and focus us on the heart of worship.  We'll be exploring simplicity, reflection and sustainability in worship ministry.  The afternoon workshops are very practical, covering all the instruments and also issues of planning and leading worship.  Plus the main auditorium will be left as a quiet, reflective space, for those who want to treat the day more as a retreat.

We've got our usual great booking discount, and are putting together goodie bags.  So tell your team and get booked in!

We're really excited about our 'Engage with God' Family Advent Creative Journal!  It aims to help all the family engage with the themes of Advent and Christmas through creative ideas and interactive worship. It was sent to some experts in family ministry, and we've had some great feedback including this from Martin Saunders (Youthscape, former editor of Childrenswork mag): "I love this idea - a practical way for families to explore and deepen faith together.  Clever ideas, engaging design - and some genuine depth.  I've never seen anything like it!"    We're doing a fantastic bargain-deal for buying in bulk, so do check...

We've just returned from teaching at the first week-long Albanian School of Worship.  This was brilliantly organised by Beni and Irma Xhako, and was a real joy to be part of!  We had the privilege of working with over 20 students, ages ranging between 16-45.  We taught a range of material, including stuff from our book How Would Jesus Lead Worship, Bible-based subjects we would usually do at a church training day, plus practical things such as guitar and voice sessions, band rehearsal skills and songwriting. We've written some reflections which you can read here, based on our experiences and thoughts.  Here we...

We're looking forward to putting on a gig at The Greenhouse, Luton on 21st June, to raise money for our trip to Albania.  We'll be going over in September to teach at a pioneering worship conference - for more info look here.
