An Introduction to Preparing and Leading Worship
Worship is at the heart of all we do as Christians. Whether as a worship leader or local preacher, or as a church steward responsible for a local arrangement in your church, we seek to do the best we can as we lead the people of God in worship. This booklet offers a framework to help you, particularly if you’re just starting out leading worship.
Also available is a Worship Planning sheet, which you can use to collect your ideas for planning worship, based on the framework described in the booklet.
Worship planning sheet (Word)
Jesus is at the heart of our faith and life as Christian people, yet many of us struggle to explain to others why he is so important, indeed why we worship him as our Lord and Saviour. In these four short videos, Revd Dr Calvin Samuel explores who Jesus was, and his relevance for our life and mission today.
Each video is accompanied by a Worksheet, summarising the video and providing some ideas for personal reflection or discussion. You can download this and print it as you need to.
A transcript of the video is also available for download and printing.
The Worship: Leading and Preaching course makes use of an online learning tool called Moodle, which is widely used in education. However, if you are not familiar with Moodle, studying online, or indeed with using computers, Moodle may seem difficult to master.
These two videos provide a simple introduction to using Moodle on your computer, taking you through the enrolment process, logging in and finding your way round the course.
You can watch these videos, and pause and replay them as many times as you like while you learn the ropes.
