Worship while we wait for Jesus’ return

All Souls Langham Place, London

Saturday 25 January 2020
10:00 - 17:00 | Doors open at 9:30

What does music ministry look like in this ‘in between’ stage, as we wait for Jesus return?  How do we serve our congregations with music that encourages them to keep going in the struggle and the wait?  And how do we practically do that in the way we play and the songs we choose?

This is a day for church musicians, music directors, PA teams and pastors, to be encouraged and built up in the week by week work of local church music ministry.

Children's song writers

Singing with all ages.

What place should singing have in our times together with children? What different roles does it play? What if I don't like actions, or children's songs make me cringe? Dan and Gareth (aka Awesome Cutlery) will talk about choosing songs, teaching new songs, using accompaniment (or not), using actions (or not), how to lead singing if you're not musical. For leaders, parents, or anyone who knows kids.

Leading music with only a few musicians

How do we embrace the challenge of small numbers of musicians serving in our local church. How do we grow a team when no one seems to be stepping? How do we not burn ourselves out? How do we encourage the most powerful instrument in our church - the congregation and their united voice

Beyond Pragmatism

Preparing and planning as we meet God together in our Sunday gatherings, looking into how to think through a service from beginning to end, with a coherent flow and theme, so that the message of the sermon is upheld in everything else that happens. A great session if you are involved week by week in picking songs or leading services.

Liturgy and Leading

Come to this if you want to grow in your gifts leading gathered worship or help others to do the same. We'll be exploring how ancient words from Scripture and Church history can help modern people to love God and their neighbours—and having a go at leading people through church services in a way that helps them participate in speaking and listening to God and one another.

Making best use of rehearsal time

Many of us are time poor and often that extends into our leading of the music at church. Rehearsals can be short, setting up can be frustrating. So we are going to look at a few ways to work together (PA teams and musicians) to make the most of what limited time we have.

How to make the most of classical musicians

Many of us find ourselves working with classically trained musicians, who may feel worried about straying from the notes on the page, or struggle to convert classical performance styles to the more low-key local-church setting. How do we encourage and train them to be even more useful in leading our congregations in singing and in using their gifts for evangelism?
