Inspiring Music in Worship – A short course of guided conversations for churches
by Revd Canon Helen Bent
Description

Details

Inspiring Music in Worship encourages parishes to make best use of music to enhance their worship, even when they have few resources. Guided conversations foster greater understanding – not only of worship and music, but also between leaders of worship (both lay and ordained), musicians and congregations. In an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust, participants are invited to explore together. Grounded in real-life case studies, each session provides an opportunity to discover new riches whilst acknowledging the tensions of traditional and contemporary forms of worship and bringing hope to congregations in the face of challenge and unavoidable change.

Helen Bent is a priest and musician with a passion for worship and mission. She understands the challenges faced by local churches, and guides discussion from her wealth of experience in both parish ministry and the training of worship leaders and musicians. She remains rooted in the local church, regularly leading worship in The Rivers Team in Sheffield Diocese. Although she writes as an Anglican, this course will be useful for churches of every denomination.
