Making Melody – with Dave & Pat Bilbrough

This enabling and teaching weekend with Dave and Pat Bilbrough is designed to help us ‘raise the bar’ creatively as we do that. Appropriate for delegates of all levels of musical ability.

Topics will include….

  • The heart of worship,
  • Worship through scripture,
  • Worship leading,
  • Songwriting,
  • Basic Vocal technique,Singing in parts.
  •  Percussion – hand held percussion and hand drumming.

On the Saturday evening, Dave & Pat will hold a ‘live and acoustic evening’ in the peaceful, intimate setting of St Katharine’s chapel. More details on this in due course.

In a warm anecdotal style Dave Bilbrough shares  his music and  life story for an evening that is fun and uplifting and one that you don’t have to be ‘churchified’ to enjoy.
