Music for Mission and Ministry is a residential training course for lay or ordained leaders of worship and musicians, exploring how to use music creatively and effectively in worship. Please note: no specific musical expertise is required. These practical courses are designed to inspire, deepen, equip and resource. They endeavour to cover the full breadth of traditions, styles and genres present in a 21st century church. They are particularly useful for those in multi-church settings where musical resources may be limited.

Download the course flyerDay places are available for those who live locally at a reduced cost. This still includes lunch and an evening meal. Places are limited, so it is important to book promptly.

Each course is held in an atmosphere of prayer and worship with opportunities to worship in different styles using a varied and broad range of music. These courses are deliberately small and intimate with a balance of input and conversation with others. They can be particularly useful for curates about to move on to their first incumbency and for those in transition to a new parish or benefice.

They have been very well received with excellent feedback:

"Helen has an impressive ‘can do’ approach which was really helpful. She clearly understands the difficulties when there are few singers and no musicians and she has given me lots of ideas that I can try now that I am home."

"This is the best course on worship I have experienced so far."
