Until I started looking for resources for Schools and Churches to use, I had not come across Engageworship. Now, I pass your name on to lots and lots of people. You are brilliant and gifted. My prayers are with you for the next 10 years. Well done to you all.

I pray that God will provide the insights, and continued motivation and zeal to use your gifts in enabling worship. May His grace and peace be yours always.

I have found lots of good inspiration on the Engage website for use in our All Age informal worship service. This is a great resource and is on my favourite 'first stop' sites.

Very grateful to engageworship for all their resources (and to Resound too). Pleased to contribute towards the present and future.

It's great to know that there are creative & Godly people out there making creative & Godly ideas available for less creative but still Godly people to use to shine His glory to all. Thanks, you are greatly appreciated.

Rev Fiona Ellingham

Thank you for all the creativity you collectively produce. Our Carol service last year used a great variety of your resources including "welcome to our world", the interactive reading of John 1, the Christmas Intercessions and we regularly use the week52 resources for our Messy Church celebration time. The journals are great resources too as single pages as take home sheets. May God continue to bless you richly.

Thank you for all the creative ideas. I have used several of the different prayer activities for Christmas Day worship and at various other times during the year.

Rev. Melissa A Fox

As a Worship Leader, I am always seeking new ways to help people engage with God's beauty and truth. Engageworship is an awesome collection of creative, inspirational resources. I have used several of the scripts and worship service ideas, plus I have been inspired to include aspects in our own worship planning. I appreciate you and hope you will be around for a long, long time. It is my pleasure to give a birthday gift to celebrate Engageworship!

Just thanks for your resources and ministry and the timely reminder that just because you can download for free doesn't mean it costs nothing to make.

Andy Connolly

As someone who is exploring what it means to authentically worship, I thank you for the creative work that you continue to do. We have been blessed at All Nations Christian College by the resources and ideas that you have freely given. God bless you!!

Julie

Thank you for great resources.

Hilary

Engage worship resources were so helpful when I was leading a Baptist congregation with limited income and no worship leader. Being able to worship in creative ways without music was so encouraging. Unfortunately the church was not sustainable and had to close but I have continued to use and re-use the material in my current situation. I have recently purchase the 'Worship in the wilderness' and the 'Simple worship' books for use in small groups. Thank you for your ministry, I have really appreciated it and been inspired by it.

Mark Rice

May God richly bless you in your continuing ministry.

Karen

Thank you for your ministry to those of us who seek inspiration in our own ministries! I so appreciate your website.

Sarah Atkin

Thank you for wonderful resources and great blessings

Kim

Thanks for all the wonderful, creative ideas.

John Waldron

Many thanks for your creative resource. Its an inspiration!

John Tasker

Thank you so much Sam and Sara for enabling us to have these wonderful resources for worship. I used the Christmas video 'You bring peace' on Remembrance Sunday last month, followed by an invitation to light a candle as a sign that the light of Christ will come into our situation. Everyone in the all age congregation came forward to do just that!

Rev Jane James

Thank you for all the inspiration.

sara alexander

I am always looking for fresh ways to engage teenagers in worship and your website is a wonderful tool for that. Thank you for this excellent resource.

I just discovered this wonderful website! I have truly been enjoying all of your creative ideas, and would love to support this work through prayer and through donations. Can I send a donation from the US using my debit card? May our good Lord continue to inspire and direct you as you lead others in developing and providing creative and engaging worship!

Christine Smaller

Thank you for all you do.

Erika

I found engageworship by chance searching for contemporary praise ideas to use in a small Church of Scotland youth event amongst 16 teenagers - it went down a storm and now its one of my go to resources - Thank you team for all the work you do

Dr Sandra Brower

I did my doctoral research on the theology of worship and I teach units on worship at Cliff College, a Methodist college in Derbyshire. I've been using Whole Life Worship as one of the core texts for the unit on Resourcing Worship, and it's great to have resources like this (and the website) where I can direct students engaged in the practical task of planning worship. So thanks for how you contribute to this vital task of the Church.

Margery

Loving God, you have graciously given gifts to your people to build up, encourage and inspire our worship. Bless them now as by your Spirit you bring new and fresh ways of sharing the Good News of Jesus, Immanuel, God With us , Prince odf Peace and hope of the world. Amen

We've found the Engage resources inspiring and useful over the years, and in particular the idea of "Unfinished Worship" is one that has made a profound difference. Most recently we have been using the Whole Life Worship material for a Sunday series and in our small groups, and have had a lot of positive feedback about both content and the resources. One group said there was so much in the video clips they watched one three times in a row!

Anonymous

Loving God, Thank you for the creativity that has inspired this website. May these resources be used to inspire others and in turn lead more to worship, to know you and your love. amen

Jon & Sarah JOY

Congratulations on ten years! May God bless you even more mightily, from inspiration to brain to pen to keyboard to the download click, and beyond.

Matt & Eils

Engageworship has come to my aid many times when I've needed a creative prayer idea, some corporate gathering liturgy, all-age resources - all kinds of things. And Sam and Sara are generally marvellous, creative and godly people. Thanks for all you do! Blessings for the next ten years.

Gail Adcock

I've always been impressed by all that engageworship offer the Church! Congratulations on reaching this significant milestone! Sam and Sara made a big impact on our weekend event with family workers and opened all our eyes to the possibilities of worshipping creatively! Away from the norm and exploring how we can meet with God in a diverse range of ways and settings. I recommend your resources constantly - the family journals especially have been a regular in workshops I've led with children, youth and family workers. Keep doing all you do and be even more brilliant! The Church needs you!!

AdAM

Engage Worship has been a very much valued part of my life for quite a few years now! Being a part of the EngageBand (I'm never that sure how to write it! Ha ha!) has resulted in much travelling to varied and interesting destinations (usually churches or conferences) and even more fun-filled creativity and music-making (the rehearsals are never long enough for me!), but I think over all of the other rich blessings that have been brought into my life through this ministry stands the new friendships I have made along the way! Sometimes I get really tired in ministry, but even in those times it is always a joy to rock up somewhere with Sam and Sara and others and just sit under their humble and capable leadership and to press down piano keys at the right time (most of the time I hope!) Thank you! May the Lord bless you and the entire Engage family!

Jeremy Perigo

Anytime I need creative, contextual, smoking hot, theological rich, sleek, pastorally sensitive, biblically infused worship content, I GO TO ENAGE WORSHIP!! Congrats to Sam and Sara on 10 years!!! I can't wait to see what the next 10 years holds for this amazing ministry.

Arben Xhako

Sara and Sam taught at the first ever Worship School in Albania, in a country that even wrought in constitution that God don't exists. Thanks Sam & Sara and kids and thank you engageworship!

Alwyn Frost

So many thanks for your time in Hemingford Grey. Blessings on your future ministry

Karen Langtree

I first met Sam and Sara a couple of years ago when they led a retreat at Wydale for our young people and parents. They overwhelmed us with their simple and effective worship leading and we all felt drawn closer to God. Recently I went on the Harrogate Whole Life Worship event and the day was utterly brilliant. I came away fired up to follow God's calling to lead worship, wherever he puts me. That was a very emotional moment for me. And who knows, I may even get back to some more prolific song-writing. Happy Birthday Engage!

Stuart Mitchell

Congratulations on 10 years and every blessing for the future

Joel Payne (Resound Worship)

I've been privileged to work with Sam and Sara from the very first day of engageworship and full of admiration for the way their ministry has grown, contributors have emerged from all kinds of places generously giving their talents, and their influence in the wider worship scene has been firmly established. At Resound Worship we've had several opportunities to partner with them on projects and we love the way they bring a holistic approach to our rather more narrow world of songwriting. On a more personal level I've frequently used the resources in small groups, and my vicar at church is always turning up with a new engage prayer he has found. They are thoroughly influential across my worship life! Congratulations both of you. In the words of the apostle, 'I thank my God every time I think of you.'

Timo & Gemma Scharnowski

Always creative, always honest, always biblical, always fun. We love Engage!

Neil Hudson from LICC

Things change when people start conversations that begin with the immortal words: 'What if?' That's how LICC's partnership with Sam and Sara began. In a coffee shop, wondering what might be possible. We knew that too much of the church's worship is cocooned in the spheres of the sacred and the firmly private areas of life. We knew that if we are to see the culture of the UK church change so that whole life discipleship becomes the norm for every Christian, we need to help worship leaders have the vision and the resources to introduce change on the ground in local church communities all across the nation. That's what Whole Life Worship has made possible. Working with Sam and Sara has been eye-opening, energising and envisioning. We are so grateful for their partnership with us. They make things possible. Making things simple takes really depth of understanding and years of experience. So congratulations on this first decade. May God bless you in all that lies ahead as we continue to pray that God will draw people to himself and then send them out to serve him in his world - wherever that may be.

Jo Squires

You guys are awesome. Your creativity and passion to make things excellent is an inspiration. Happy 10th Birthday Engage Worship!!

Peter Cunliffe / St James' Church Hemingford Grey

Sam and Sarah brought engageworship to us personally as our Worship Ministers back in 2008 and for a couple of years. They changed the worship landscape and made us hungry, not for more rock but for more encounter with our living God. Thank you Sam and Sarah and Engageworship for all you did and continue to do to bless the Church.

Bob Hartman

Such fun to work with you on Area 52, at Spring Harvest and in other places. Praise God for his goodness.

Dave Hopwood

It has been a pleasure to be involved, contributing bits of writing to AREA 52 and getting to know the engageworship team. Bless you folks for the next 10 years!

Sunil Chandy

Felicitations on your anniversary.

Amy Robinson

In our context, a little rural church, it has been great to have so many creative ideas flooding in from you. Thank you!

Stuart Gray

Eils Osgood

Happy birthday guys!! Engage worship has been a huge blessing and incredible resource to me over the past ten years, even in the variety of roles I have had in that time. I can remember in my days working at Tearfund, organising a student conference which Sam and Sara came to and provided all kind of creative ways of praying, and helped us to bring worship and justice together in such an inspiring way. Since then, first as a worship director and now in the last few years as an ordained minister, engage is so often my 'go to' place when I am planning gathered worship and looking for ideas and resources to enrich the experience for those I will be leading. I have greatly appreciated attending some of the training that Sam and Sara have run over the years too - always really thought provoking and highly practical, with easy to implement suggestions that bring more breadth and depth to the way I lead worship. THANK YOU Sam and Sara, you are such a gift to the church. Happy Birthday!

Roger Peach

An important part of my role as Music Director at St Andrew’s Oxford is developing our team of worship leaders, including mentoring worship team members with leadership potential. Two weeks ago I met with one of the team one-to-one for the first time, and we were establishing what to focus on in our mentoring sessions. He said he was keen to explore the idea of how to worship God throughout the week, not just on Sundays. I was immediately able to find him an excellent resource! I gave him a copy of Whole Life Worship, and we’ve agreed to meet up regularly, using the book as a springboard to discussion. Two weeks before that I’d lent out my other copy to one of our established worship leaders, showing that this book can be valuable at many different levels.

Richard Lyall

I've really enjoyed contributing visual worship ideas to the website, and also collaborating with you on live events such as Spring Harvest and the Engage Worship days. Happy 10th Birthday!
