Whole Life Worship: Empowering Disciples for the Frontline is published by IVP, in collaboration with the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity. We're so excited at the feedback we've been receiving:

  • "This is such a helpful, well-thought out, biblically sound, and beautifully practical book... It invites us to become 'whole life' worshippers - those who don't simply lift up their song, but those who lay their lives down for the sake of the King and Kingdom."
    Kathryn Scott - songwriter, worship leader, pastor of Causeway Coast Vineyard Church
  • "Packed with thoughtful provocation and practical innovation this is a vital book for all those who lead in our churches."
    Dr Krish Kandiah - Founder and Director, Home for Good
  • "Whole Life Worship is biblical, prophetic and pastorally sensitive. Sam and Sara offer an important corrective to 21st century church worship... the message is revolutionary if we will only take it on board."
    Mike Pilavachi - Soul Survivor

Launch events and Saturdays

The Saturdays are ideal for all worship team members, pastors and other interested people. We  unpack the book and inspire you to lead Whole Life Worship by demonstrating usable ideas.

  • "Brilliant – gentle but challenging, and with an understanding of the spectrum of churches there.  It was wonderful to go home with a whole bunch of things that I not only longed to do, but could do easily and quickly with the resources we already have."

We have run Saturday regional training events based around the book in Cheshire, Luton, Brussels, Bath, Cumbria, Belfast, Cheltenham, London, Lichfield, Orpington, Balham, Beckenham, the Cambridge Faith in Business Conference and for the Chinese Church in London! We are open to doing more of these in the future, so do get in touch if you'd like to host one. Sara and Sam have run seminars on Whole Life Worship whilst at Spring Harvest, Chester Clergy Conference, the Salvation Army Frontline conference and Bristol Baptist College.

Journey Pack

The companion resource, Whole Life Worship: Journey Pack is designed to help church communities go on an journey of exploring the themes of the book through practical means: service plans, worship ideas, song suggestions, group discussion notes and more. It features access to downloadable PowerPoints, animated videos and printable scripts.

You can also buy the printed Study Guide booklets for just £2.
