Inspiring Music in Worship

Thursday 6 June; 10.00 - 3.30.00
St Mary's Church, St. Mary's Road, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, CV31 1JW

Led by Helen Bent, Head of Ministerial Training,

RSCM in partnership with Praxis

A day for clergy, lay worship leaders, musicians and singers This will be a practical and visionary day relevant to the worship and music of every local church. The content will be based on material from the RSCM publication Inspiring Music in Worship: A short course of guided conversations for churches with plenty of examples and resources to take away

Inspiring Music in Worship encourages parishes to make the best use of music to enhance their worship, even when they have few resources. Guided conversations foster greater understanding – not only of worship and music but also between leaders of worship (both lay and ordained), musicians and congregations. In an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust, you are invited to explore together. Grounded in real-life case studies, the day will provide an opportunity to discover new riches whilst acknowledging the tensions of traditional and contemporary forms of worship.

The book on which the day is based, Inspiring Music in Worship, is usually priced at £5.99, but will be available on the day for £4.50.

Cost: £30 per person including lunch; £20 for groups of two or more and Praxis members, £10 for ordinands, readers in training and students (to cover lunch costs)
