WORKSHOP: SPONTANEOUS & PROPHETIC WORSHIP: JOURNEYING INTO THE HEART OF GOD with ROBYN STEWART, SARAH DOWLING & MUSICIANS
Thurs 27th 2pm - 3.20pm Main Hall
DESCRIPTION: Worship is so much more than a song that we sing or play. It goes far beyond playing the right note and singing in perfect melody. Worship is an opportunity to find and connect deeply with the Father’s heart and to partner with Him in releasing that into a space. Finding that spontaneous/prophetic moment may seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to. It is an opportunity to sing a song that has never been sung, to move Him in a way that nothing else can. This workshop will include teaching, as well as spending time in worship, stewarding the moment and pressing into His presence.
WHAT TO BRING: Notebooks/journals. Rhythm instruments and instruments that do not require power or amplification.. Please note that there is no space to store your instrument in the building so please bring smaller instruments, or make sure you can store them in your own vehicle at other times. You are responsible for the safety of your instrument in the building.
