Worship 4 Today is a three-part course specially designed to train and equip all who lead worship in the local church - those with prior experience or none, musicians and the non-musical, ordained or lay, those who lead the prayers, operate the technology, employ the creative arts, or participate in any way.
Developed and tested in the Diocese of Sheffield over the last five years, it is now recognised as a national training resource and its publication is fully supported by the Liturgical Commission of the Church of England.
