The Big Church Day Out’s new “bolt on” event is called The Worship Conversation. Taking place on 26 and 27 May in West Sussex, UK, this two-day conference is designed for worship leaders and worship teams. This new more intimate event is designed to have a very unconferencelike approach and is themed around four “conversations”:
- Worship and The Holy Spirit
- Worship and The Church
- Worship and The Bible
- Worship and The World
In the afternoons Musicademy will be running a series of hands-on practical workshops. These will include:
- Band Skills
Practical ideas for the entire team exploring the mechanics, dynamics and emotion of making better music together. Including ideas for timing, tuning, tone, groove, dynamics, instrument interaction, communication and matching theme, lyrics and music.
- Vocals 1
Basics of good vocal technique including breathing, posture, warm-ups, harmonies and mic technique.
Practical worship leading skills for vocalists.
- Guitar Masterclass
Expand your range of chords, strumming and picking techniques with these practical ideas for acoustic guitarists in worship teams.
- Keys Masterclass
A whole range of techniques, tips and ideas for playing better keyboards in a worship band.
- PA Session inconjunction with SFL
Why is it so hard to get good sound in church?
Putting the mix together
Our team will include Andy Chamberlain, Tim Martin, Philly Lopez, Pat Smith and Marie Page. We’d love to have you join us.
