Friday 7 to Saturday 8 June

We are holding two events with EMU Music during one weekend – a conference and a concert.

The conference, which will take place on Friday and Saturday, will be a chance to be encouraged and refreshed, to hear from the Bible, and to grow in practical skills for music ministry in your church. This will be two days of refreshment, teaching and practical training for church musicians and pastors.

Each day will include hearing from the Bible about God’s plan for singing within the church; sessions to personally encourage you in this unique (and not uncomplicated!) ministry; plus practical workshops for song leaders, instrumentalists, song writers and pastors.

A Night In With Emu will be held on the Friday evening, which is open to everyone. The acoustic concert will feature Liv and Philip for a night of music and story-telling. Tickets for the concert are £10 each. Doors open at 7.30pm for an 8pm start.
