In January I had the privilege of taking two college students with me to join with a gathering of worship leaders from many backgrounds at the Calvin Symposium on Worship. I’m still making use of the things I learned while there.
The Calvin Institute of Christian Worship has a fantastic Website. It’s a good place to spend some time, and on this Worship Leading Wednesday at WotW, I heartily recommend it. One of their resources that I’ve found most helpful as a worship planner is their “Plan Worship” space. Here you can, in their words:
- Reflect on the meaning and purpose of worship.
- See these nuts and bolts of worship planning.
- Consult our book Designing Worship Together and The Worship Sourcebook.
- Find a worship service outline or service series and adapt it for your worship.
- See our ministry partner, Reformed Worship magazine, for a wealth of worship planning resources. Learn more.
The CICW also provide links to help in the crafting of music, prayers, and art for worship services.
