Inspire Worship Training – Extravagance & Intimacy

The Inspire Worship Training Course is a short course for worship leaders and those involved in worship teams.

Get a grip

So today I woke up to find my world covered in white. Yes it snowed overnight (much to the delight of my kids) and as we live in a village on the outskirts of Canterbury this pretty much means I’m going no where. Read the rest of this page »
