Events for 2019

Growing in Worship
for Lay Leaders

Saturday 2 March 2019

10.00am - 4.00pm

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

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
