The Week 2018 June 2018


This is a jam packed few days dedicated to training worship leaders - both in who they are and what they do. Come to be inspired, challenged, have fun and soak up the culture of Worship Central here in Birmingham, leaving with a fresh passion for your craft and for Jesus.


The programme is subject to change nearer the time but this gives you a good idea of the daily timetable.

We have designed The Week’s programme to invest in your passion and calling, with enough space to encounter God and allow him to speak to you. Most days will look like this, with a few variations:

8.45am: Doors
Tea & coffee

9.00am: Hubs
Journeying through the week together, discussing things around particular questions and topics

9.45am: Morning session
With worship & space for ministry

11.45am: Coffee break

12.15pm: Masterclasses
Lessons from a pro - we’ll be hearing from various leaders who are experts in their fields

1pm: Lunch (provided)

2.15pm: Streams

4.00pm: Hubs

4.45pm: Break & Dinner
A chance to go grab some food and explore Birmingham!

7.30pm: Evening Sessions
These will look slightly different each night - including evenings of prophetic worship and socials.


The Sunday will look a little different - we'll kick things off at 6.30pm with everyone attending the St Luke's Gas Street evening service (Worship Central's church home) and then drinks after the gathering.


The total cost of The Week is £195. This includes all training and input, as well as lunch each day.
