Do you have a heart for worship? Are you or would you, like to be in your churches worship team?

The Thrive worship course explores what worship is, who we worship and how we can be a Spirit-filled lead worshipper who others can follow.

The course is for anyone aged 13-18 with musical or vocal ability and a Christian faith, longing to go deeper with God, entering His presence in worship and who wants to be able to invite others to do the same.

The course runs for four sessions, the first three are evenings, with the final session being longer, on a Saturday.

Each session is split into two: We start the first half learning about worship through Bible study, discussions, prayer and reflections. Then we put what we have learned into practice, with a time of playing our instruments together as we learn to play a worship song or two together.

The course builds up to our exciting worship and creativity day where we go deeper into the art of leading others in worship and using creativity in worship, including some songwriting!

If you are involved in leading worship at your church or youth group (or would like to), this course is for you!

The course runs for 4 sessions and it will take place at St. Laurence church, Old Church Road, Foleshill, Coventry CV6 7ED, with a total cost of £20 (payable at the first session).
