Music is such an important part of good worship but for many it's difficult to achieve. This conference gives practical workshops and advice covering all styles of Church music with some leading practitioners.

Whether you are an accomplished musician or you have no music provision and want to make better use of videos and CDs, this day is for you. Practitioners come from a range of backgrounds and musical traditions so whether you prefer contemporary or traditional music there will be something for everyone.

Delegates will be able to choose three workshops to go to on the day.

Provisional Workshops include...
  • Hymns for Today's Liturgy
  • Ian Sharp
  • The singing of Psalms and Canticles
  • George Swift
  • Worship Music/Music Group
  • Debs Davies
  • Music without Musicians
  • Jeremy Fagan
  • Contemporary Music
  • Helen Bent
  • Using BSL with Hymns & Songs (for complete beginners)
