St Michael's Church, Bishops Stortford

Inspiring Music in Worship

Inspiring Music in Worship is a course for everyone. Through a series of five guided conversations, it provides an opportunity for worship leaders, musicians and congregation to talk to each other and reflect on worship together. These conversations will aim to affirm what we are currently doing well, and also consider new potential areas for development and growth in our church.

The sessions last two hours, with a break, and will take place in the Windhill Churches Centre, Bishop’s Stortford (CM23 2ND).
