The Week 2019 June 2019

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

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 6.00pm 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.
