About Word In Song

What does the Bible say about our singing and worship? How do we lead singing or play our instruments in a way that helps the congregation’s praise? How do I create a healthy culture amongst my music team? Our Word In Song Conferences are centred around the Bible's teaching about singing, and applied through practical seminars, singing, fellowship and discussion. If you're a church musician, leader, service planner, pastor, sound technician or just interested in church music - then come along to be equipped, excited, resourced and refreshed in God’s purposes for your church’s music ministry, whatever your size or musical tradition.

Conference Overview

At the heart of the Word In Song conference is Bible teaching and practical help for your ministry. Three key elements of the day are:

1. Bible Talk – Our main session is where we sing, meet the team and hear from God’s word about his purposes for the church, music, and worship. The key idea is that our singing is fundamentally a ministry of the word of Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit (Col 3:16; Eph 5:18-20).

2. Church Music Masterclass – A fun and informative session where we look at how musical ensembles work, especially in the context of congregational singing, and where we talk about how to lead great singing with whatever musical resources you have available.

3. Seminars – Specialist sessions covering a range of practical, theological, and leadership issues, with lots of time for questions and discussion.
