Strengthen for Service Lite

Cost: £10 (£7.50 for affiliates)

Led by The Revd Helen Bent, RSCM Head of Ministerial Training, this one-day training event is a shortened version of the three-day Strengthen for Service course. It has been specially devised in response to a demand for guidance to be available to clergy, readers and other lay worship leaders on how to choose the music for their church and how to work well with their musicians. This practical day will look at ways in which to deepen our understanding of the place of music in worship with guidance on choice of repertoire, copyright and how to integrate words and music creatively in the liturgy. Strengthen for Service LITE is particularly appropriate for those just starting out in this area of ministry, those  facing new or perhaps unexpected challenges in the worship of the church, or those who simply want a refresher and some new ideas.
