What have we learned through the pandemic? How might we develop a more intercultural worship? Where could this go? 

All Nations Christian College in partnership with Arts Release (WEC), Intercultural Church Plants Europe (ICP) and Songs2Serve, invite you to join us for a worship webinar which will help reflect on worship practice through the pandemic and in particular engage with the issue of intercultural worship. We will reflect on 3 main questions: What have we learned? How do we continue to creatively engage? Where could this go? If you are church leader, worship leader, or worship musician you will find this relevant and stimulating.

Speakers

Dr Jill Ford (All Nations)

Jill is the Arts Programme Leader at All Nations and has a heart for intercultural worship. She has just completed a Doctorate in Worship Studies with the Robert Webber Institute of Worship Studies. Her thesis focused on the subject of ‘Worship Across the Cultures and Training for Liturgical Diversity.’

 

Ian Collinge (Arts Release)

Ian Collinge is an ethnodoxologist with WEC International and offers training in intercultural worship, music and culture. He has experience as a musician, pastor, church planter, ethnomusicologist and ministry leader. He and his wife Helen founded WEC’s arts ministry, called ‘Arts Release,’ a collective of artists, musicians, and performing artists in several countries. 

 

Adam Martin (ICP)

Adam, with his wife Karina were involved in church planting in Estonia before returning to Derby UK where they planted ‘The International Community Church’ (ICC), with a particular focus on refugees from the Middle East. Adam is the senior leader within ‘Reach’ and established ‘IC-UK’ in partnership with the European Intercultural Church Planting network. He is passionate to see a new generation of churches emerge in the UK that celebrates the cultural diversity of God’s family.

 

1) WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED?

Adam Martin will help us reflect on:

What have we learned about worship during the pandemic?

How can we have a more culturally conscious approach to worship and church life?

How might we worship differently in ways that are more sensitive to other cultures?
 

2) HOW DO WE CREATIVELY ENGAGE?

Ian Collinge will speak to the issues of:

Building intercultural relationships and embracing intercultural creativity in worship, and how worship leaders can overcome some initial hurdles to move towards a more intercultural approach to worship.
 

3) WHERE COULD THIS GO?

Dr Jill Ford will share:

6 key principles which call the church to understand and demonstrate an intercultural vision of worship. 

Our contributors will be tasked with the role of exploring what this all means for church, worship and mission and each will help to provide practical sign posts as to how we move forward with regards to intercultural worship.
