W:LP Explore

Learning together with others is a vital and engaging part of learning as a Worship Leader or Local Preacher.  That’s why the Explore sessions are so central to the course. 

It’s not always possible to gather a group together in a Circuit or even a District, so we provide an online alternative: 

Explore Online

Explore Online provides an opportunity to do the Explore sessions of the course online. 

Each year, we offer four weekend events.  Each one starts on Friday evening (around 7pm) and continues from 9am to 3pm on Saturday.  Times are approximate and will be confirmed nearer the time.

Note that on each weekend, two modules will be provided, running at the same time.  It is not possible to do both modules on a single weekend, you need to sign up for one module each time. 

The programme provides the opportunity to complete the Explore sessions for four modules in a year, and all eight modules over a two-year cycle. 

Module 1 - Friday 3 and Saturday 4 November 2023

Module 2 - Friday 9 and Saturday 10 February 2024

Module 3 - Friday 10 and Saturday 11 May 2024

Module 4 - Friday 19 and Saturday 20 July 2024

Module 5 - Friday 3 and Saturday 4 November 2023

Module 6 - Friday 9 and Saturday 10 February 2024

Module 7 - Friday 10 and Saturday 11 May 2024

Module 8 - Friday 19 and Saturday 20 July 2024

Please note that you still need a local Tutor to work with you on assessing your WLP projects, and a Mentor to help you develop your practical skills. 

You must also complete the self-study Learn material before attending Explore Online.  We do not teach material during the online sessions, but provide a facilitated conversation on some of the topics covered by the module. All three sections of a module will be covered during the weekend, and it is important that you attend all sessions during the event. 

You will be expected to participate in conversation and keep your video on at all times, so that the whole group can participate fairly.  We do not record sessions, as they are conversational and reflect the interests and concerns of the group who are meeting - to benefit from Explore Online, you need to take part.

Explore Online is provided free of charge by the Learning Network and Ministries Team.

Summer School at Cliff College

Due to low numbers of bookings, it is no longer possible for us to provide Summer School at Cliff College. 

We are considering alternatives, possibly intensive weekend events in accessible locations around the country.  Information will be provided here and via the LP & WL eNews when available.
