Helen Kirk: August 2018
The first 'Our Calling' priority of the Methodist Church is to worship: 'The church exists to increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love' With that in mind the Vale of Aylesbury Circuit would like to support and resource those who lead worship in their own local churches, either as worship leaders or organisers of local arrangements. In the Autumn we are planning a short course consisting of six sessions:
9th September: What is worship? How worship is structured
3rd October: Leading prayers
17th October: Planning themes for worship; using the Bible & other readings
31st October: Wider resources and materials for worship
14th November Choosing hymns/songs and practical presentation
28th November Technology in worship & Round up of the Worship Leader's role.
All the sessions will take place at 7.30pm at Stoke Mandeville Methodist Church. These sessions are open to anyone who currently leads worship, who is involved in leading local arrangements in their church, or who would like to explore leading worship.
If you would like to know more or book a place on the course, please contact either:
