This year’s Spring Training Day, on 11th May at Unitarian New Meeting in Birmingham, was on the theme ‘Music in Worship. Rev Ant Howe, minister at Kingswood and Ministry Tutor of Unitarian College, led most of it.
We started with a general session on music in worship, which included singing several hymns. We were lucky that there were several strong singers among the 13 participants. Then Ant led us in a Taize style service, which was wonderful.
After lunch, Rev Danny Crosby and Sue Blackshaw came and gave us the experience of a fabulous Singing Meditation, accompanied by hand-drums. The day finished with a ‘putting it all together’ session, and yes, we sang again.
It was a wonderfully rich and enjoyable day, and we are most grateful to Ant, Danny and Sue for leading it for us.
