A Worship Seminar

7.30-8.40pm (UK Time)


What have we learned through the pandemic? How might we develop a more intercultural worship? Where could this go? 

All Nations Christian College in partnership with Arts Release (WEC), Intercultural Church Plants Europe (ICP) and Songs2Serve, invite you to join us for a worship webinar which will help reflect on worship practice through the pandemic and in particular engage with the issue of intercultural worship. We will reflect on 3 main questions: What have we learned? How do we continue to creatively engage? Where could this go? If you are church leader, worship leader, or worship musician you will find this relevant and stimulating.
