What Shall We Sing?

Saturday, September 21, 2013 at Erie Street United Church, Ridgetown.  10 am to 2 pm

Leadership by Rev. Michael Brooks

This is a Licensed Lay Worship Leaders Workshop, to fulfill the requirement for an annual continuing education event.  However, it is open to all interested persons.

What is this day about?  In Voices United and More Voices there are over 1,000 choices for hymns, responses and other musical elements of worship.  Lay worship leaders are often stepping into unfamiliar settings, and selecting congregational music for a one-time occasion can be a daunting task.  This workshop will provide some tools for choosing congregational music that is sing-able and meaningful, while respecting local traditions.
