Leading sung worship

Session date: Thursday 7th August 2014 Session time: 11:45 am - 12:45 pm Session location: LT7 Session track

What does it mean to lead worship? Is it the same as directing music? What should be the goals of those entrusted with this task? How do we prepare to lead sung worship? What steps can we take to encourage people to engage fully in congregational worship? How can we lead helpfully without becoming a distraction? How should we relate to church leaders, PA operators and those who offer constructive criticism? This seminar will explore these questions and also consider some practical musical suggestions which can help in local churches.
