Tim Hughes and the Worship Central UK team are heading to South Africa in October!
They will be in Port Elizabeth on 7 October, Durban on the 8th and with Martin Smith in Cape Town on the 11th. Martin Smith will also be running a Worship Workshop in Jhb on 9 October 2014.
The guys at Worship Central have also put together a fantastic 7-week Worship Training Course that you can run with your team. The material can be downloaded for free and includes video teaching sessions and printed notes for your team.
Some of the topics covered include Why is worship central?; leading worship; releasing creativity and playing as a team. Check it out!
Here’s a little little something we’ve changed at our pre-meeting sound check which has been a massive blessing to our sound guys:
Say our setlist was;
We Are The Free
You are Good
Christ is enough
We’ve been using a mix between Ableton and ProPresenter to run our clicks and loops.
If you’re not too sure what or why we use loops, check this post out.
Ableton is fantastic for this, but it can be a bit overwhelming at first.
So to keep things simple, sometimes ProPresenter is easier, especially when we’re training new guys.
We want to make it easy for them, but at the same time make sure they’re stretching themselves.
At the cross, at the cross
I surrender my life
I’m in awe of You, I’m in awe of You
Where Your love ran red
and my sin washed white
I owe all to You, I owe all to You
Our worship team worked through this song at band rehearsal last night.
I must admit I’m a little ‘Tomlin-ed’ out, but hey if I’m not writing any songs, who am I to talk?
It is a great song though.
Easy to sing, and basic to play.
Feel free to grab the mp3, the music sheet and chords.
We’ll definitely be doing this song at our Easter meeting.
We have not been created to worship but created as worshippers.
The difference is that we don’t choose when we worship and when we don’t.
The truth is we are always worshipping.
The question is what are we worshipping?
Col. 3:23 “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men…”
You never are just doing your duty.
You never are just cranking it out.
You never are just going through the motions…
When we fail to see the glory of the King of the universe, we bring Him our leftovers.
Hey, been a while.
So this last weekend half our Church were away on a building project in #Swaziland. Church was quiet. Kids Church even quieter. And the band? Half the guys weren’t there!
You’ll remember a while ago me raving about all the new people that have joined our worship team, and you would’ve thought that this weekend would’ve been the perfect opportunity to get them involved. But I never. A missed opportunity. But never again. And here’s why…
