Led by the RSCM’s Head of Ministerial Training, Revd Helen Bent, Strengthen for Service provides practical guidance on how to manage your church’s music.

This hands-on course will…

• Give you practical advice on choosing suitable music and materials for worship

• Help you establish good working practices to continue to plan and manage your church’s music

• Provide you with significant biblical and historical insight to further support your learning

There will be “clinic” style sessions, study options and worship in a wide variety of different styles.
