2 Day Worship & Creativity Conference

 

Come and join us for our 6th Created to Worship weekend Conference!  We are greatly honoured to be joined once again by Ray Hughes and we're looking forward to welcoming a new face to the CtW family, Stephen Roach, both of whom will be teaching, inspiring and encouraging us over the 2 day event.  

Ray Hughes is an awesome story teller, song writer and musician.  He teaches on the wonder of worship and our identity as creatives, with humour, history, facts & biblical truth.  Bring a note book.  You won't want to miss anything Ray has to say.  For more information about his ministry, please go to selahministries.org

Stephen Roach is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, public-speaker, author, and poet. He is the founding member of the cinematic-folk band Songs of Water and pioneering visionary of The Breath & the Clay creative arts movement.  Stephen has written and recorded six albums and contributed music to independent films and commercials as well as the works of recording artists Ricky Skaggs, Jonathan David Helser, John Mark McMillan, and many others.

As always, there will be an afternoon filled with a variety of practical workshops, so you can try a new craft or develop existing skills.  This year, this includes teaching on dream interpretation, as well as some practical writing and artistic workshops.   In the past, these have ranged from using Ableton, creating art on an ipad, creating animated films using lego, to learning crochet, sculpture or dance. We have yet to confirm the line up for this event, but we can assure you it'll be varied and fun!

We will also be offering prophetic ministry and prayer for healing, at various times throughout the conference.  Sessions can be booked on the day.

Your children are very welcome, but be aware that there will not be any crèches or childcare at this event.  There will be space for them to express their worship during our 'corporate worship' times, and we hope they inspire us adults, with their dance, drawing and journaling!  However,  as the teaching sessions will be recorded, we may ask you to take them to another room to play, if they are making a noise during the talky bits!  Technical workshops are suitable for children ages 11 and above and artistic/craft workshops from age 8. 

There will be an opportunity to bless Ray and Stephen, as we will be taking an offering on both days.

Developing Your Creative Identity

WORSHIP SCHOOL

We are delighted to welcome Ray Hughes and Austin Biel to teach at this residential worship school, set in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside.

The School is aimed at Pastors, Worship Pastors, Worship Leaders and Musicians, Professional Artists/Musicians/Songwriters/Creatives, and those who teach and lead others in these areas. 

Ray will inspire us with Biblical truth and revelation of God's Word as we explore the reality of our creative identity and how we can develop what God has put in each of us.  He will help us to rediscover the wonder of our Creator and how we can boldly step into our place as His children.

Following on from our school in 2016, Austin will return to encourage us, through practical sessions, with how to be confident to experiment and play with our creative gifts.  There will be sessions of "all skate" where we each get involved with instruments, voice and visual arts, and others where there is more 'forum style' question and answer teaching.

The school is at Lox Lane Farm, Dorset. It starts with Dinner on Easter Monday (17th April) and runs through to lunch on Friday 21st April. You can arrive on site from 5pm, dinner is at 6pm. There will be worship and an introductory session on the Monday evening, with 3 sessions a day on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday morning, we will have a session of impartation and commissioning.

All meals are provided during the school, with unlimited tea and coffee throughout the day. All rooms are en-suite, with double or twin beds, so either bring a friend or be prepared to share with a new one!

Students staying on site, must be 18 or over, but non-residential students can be 16+.  This particular school is not suitable for children and there are no childcare facilities.  (If you want to attend our events as a family, please come to our Conference on 14th and 15th April 2017).

There will be an opportunity to bless Ray and Austin, when we take up an offering, towards the end of the School.
