Youthwork Summit event report
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.
All the talks went immediately on the YWS website, so if you missed it go and have a look!
In case you were wondering, here are the songs and resources we used:
- We began with a simple version of 'Open the eyes of my heart' (shifting just from E to Bm, harmony geeks), and interspersed with this 'Open Up' prayer which we wrote for the event.
- We then shifted into our version of the hymn 'Praise to the Lord' and then Israel Houghton's 'Lord you are Good'.
- After lunch we taught a song called 'Open Up' by The Brilliance, which again fitted the theme. You can get the chords here.
- We began the final session with our version of 'O for a Thousand Tongues', and then Sara led the 'Jesus is Lord' responsive prayer/creed.
- We continued with 'Praise is rising', 'Our Father' (with space between choruses for interceding for Manchester and our home towns), and 'Open Up' again.
- After Shane Claibourne's talk we led 'I have decided to follow Jesus' (relating the story behind it's composition), into Rend Collective's 'Build your Kingdom', and finally reprised 'Lord you are Good'.
If you saw us at the conference for the first time please do browse around the free resources we offer on this site, look at our Engage with God DVD and Journal series, or consider booking us to lead at an event or training day.
Finally, if you are looking for more input in Theology, Music/Worship or Counselling, the LST Summer School offers four intensive days in July to get equipped and fired up for ministry. Check out the website for more details.
