In the many worshipping communities, music leaders perform a vital function. They help to build Christlike, inclusive communities - what St Paul described as the "body of Christ". However, resources can be in short supply. In this insightful and practical guide, an experienced church musician describes how, according to Paul, individuals and communities are transformed into the body of Christ, and how music-making enables this process, even when resources are in short supply.
This valuable book encourages music leaders to step-up and persevere in low resource contexts, and challenges all those who lead music in worship to focus not just on producing musical results but on building Christlike communities. It is essential reading for music leaders and those who train, oversee and nurture them, such as clergy, elders, worship committees and educators.
"This is an insightful and very readable guide to music in worship, for churches where musical resources are thin. It'll be helpful for any musician or minister wanting to develop their music in church. It roots music in a theology of inclusion and charts an encouraging way forward."
