Multicultural Worship Day

Saturday 19 February 2022  |  9am - 5pm

Who is the day for?

The Multicultural Worship Day is for anyone interested in learning more about multicultural worship and in particular the relationship between music, worship and culture.

We will take you on a journey to understand more about the importance of "heart music" and how you can identify with it.

We will help you understand the heart music of other cultures and how you can use this knowledge for the benefit of worship in your church or ministry setting.

This year we are pleased to be able to deliver the course in hybrid mode, so if you are unable to join us on campus you can zoom into the sessions for the teaching on multicultural worship, song learning and resources

What do the topics include?

  • heart music
  • multicultural forms of worship
  • global song workshops
  • multicultural worship discussions
  • global worship celebrations
