Early each year, Church Music Dublin runs this popular short course in music, liturgy and worship. It aims to help church musicians understand their role in a wider context than simply playing an instrument or directing a choir.
The course usually takes place on Saturday mornings and has something for everyone – musicians, worship leaders, clergy and others with pastoral responsibility – all who have an interest in the music of worship. Practical music skills are not required to take part.
The sessions are fairly informal and dialogue between the speakers and those attending is encouraged. Most speakers include some singing as part of their presentations. There is a break for refreshments half-way through the morning – always a splendid opportunity to greet old friends and make new.
