Craig had a great day yesterday at Worship Central, a school of worship from Alpha International, led by Tim Hughes (writer of ‘Here I Am To Worship’, ‘Beautiful One’ and ‘Happy Day’) and Al Gordon ('Because of Your Love'). Their vision is to "encounter God, equip the worshipper and empower the local church".
Worship Central was designed for worship leaders, musicians and "everyone passionate about the worshipping life of the local church". The program offered times of theological and leadership teaching,
as well as practical workshops for electric guitar, drum and bass.
Craig said it was fantastic to hear Tim Hughes speak and lead times of worship.
Craig enjoyed Al Gordon's humour as MC and panel leader.
Other special guests included Andrew Gardener, The Vine Band and Nicky Gumbel (pioneer of the Alpha Course). Craig especially loved all the drumming and is keen for Worship Central to be repeated again in Hong Kong. Only next time he'll bring Glen Spencer along too!
