A six week course in leading musical worship for the local church, inspired by the life of Jesus. Runs on Tuesday nights in the Autumn term 2018.

Aimed At: Those who want to begin worship leading, or who already lead but are looking for input on foundational teaching and skills. The evening will be split into two: we will begin with biblical teaching on what worship leading looks like in the light of Jesus' life and ministry, and then explore practical skills for those leading worship. Stylistically, guests will be encouraged to dig into their own church's approach to worship, but also stretch their expressions wider. (Note under 18s need to be accompanied by and adult who will take responsibility for them.)
