Saturday 2nd March

Growing in Worship for Lay Leaders

Praxis Southwest

Venue: Cullompton Community Centre, Pye Corner, Cullompton, Devon, EX15 1JX

10.00 - 4.00 p.m.

This is an opportunity to return to basics in designing acts of worship particularly with the lay leader in mind. We will cover areas such as the building blocks of worship including the many freedoms we have even within the structures of Common Worship. These are the foundations on which we can be creative with the way we read Scripture, with music, intercessions, and even those beginnings and endings that often get forgotten. Come not only to pick up ideas but to share them, a service you’ve designed that you’re proud of and worked well, especially if it’s something “outside the box.” Bring along resources that you have found helpful to share with the group. There will be an opportunity to hear from experienced practitioners and to contribute your own thoughts so that everyone has something to take away.

For further details, or to book, please contact Preb. Gill Behenna, 1 Saxon Way, Bradley Stoke, Bristol, BS32 9AR

Inspiring Music in Worship

Praxis Midlands

10.00 - 4.00
St Mary's Church, St. Mary's Road, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, CV31 1JW

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.

Cost: £30 per person including lunch, with group, Praxis member and student discounts

To book please download this form and for all enquiries please e-mail the Rev'd Jayne Crooks.
