This year, we're so excited to join with Worship Central for a jam-packed schedule of seminars and main sessions that will help you to delve deep into Prayer and Worship as we explore the call to the downside up Kingdom. 

Here's a preview of some of the seminar sessions that will be taking place across the joint event:


Prophecy is one of the greatest tools of love we have in the Church. This seminar will explore the biblical framework for this gift and how to practice the prophetic in our lives.


What does it look like to practically exercise and grow in the prophetic in our day-to-day contexts? In this practical seminar we’ll unpack the basics and explore how to grow in the prophetic.


 Come ready for a challenge as we explore how we can embrace our creativity to transform the ‘rooms’ we find ourselves in. Aptly situated in one of the city's most beautiful interior spaces - Birmingham Cathedral.


If worship is both ‘caught and taught’, our efforts need to be focussed on cultivating an environment of praise within our communities. We’ll look at how we get there - from the macro of our church services through to the micro of our own lives.


Discovering Jesus through Asian eyes is a resource to engage those from Hindu, Muslim and Sikh backgrounds with the gospel. This session will include stories, training and interactive conversation led by Naujavan


Getting the foundations right and setting your team up to win - we’ll be looking at running effective soundchecks, flowing between songs, communicating with each other as a band, plus much more.


What happens once we’ve mastered the ultimate setlist, assembled the best band and learned every worship song in our church’s repertoire off by heart?! There’s so much more we’re yet to discover. We’ll be looking to the future and discussing the next steps for the wider worshipping community in our pursuit of Jesus together.


The idea of a place where prayer never stops doesn’t look too revolutionary at first sight. But behind there is an idea of radical love that manifests itself in radical ways. This is a concept that does nothing less than turn our usual understanding of Christianity upside down.


The aim of Ignatian Spirituality is to help disciples of Jesus be able to discern and wholeheartedly join in with God in His work in the world. This seminar will unpack Ignatius’ ancient practices and how to apply them to our lives today.


This seminar will examine the critical role worship plays in the renewal of the city and ushering in God’s will. We will be exploring how Paul engages in mission in Athens and Rome by waging war on the idols of the age, calling people back to worshipping the one true God revealed in Jesus.
