UK Worship Central Academy

What is the Worship Central Academy?

The UK Academy is a programme for those wishing to pursue a call to worship leadership in the local church, lasting the duration of an academic year. This runs in partnership with a number of churches in different locations, each of which will be where students are based on a weekly basis - serving and leading as part of the team there. Then throughout the year, there  will be a number of occasions for students to come together for input from the Worship Central team.

Who is it for?

Do you have a heart for God, worship, and the local church? Do you have experience in leading worship? The Academy is designed for emerging worship leaders actively involved in leading in their church, with a heart and calling to serve as a worship pastor. If that sounds like you then we would love you to consider applying!

What does it involve?

Each term, Worship Central will host an Academy Training Day where all students involved in the programme across the UK will come together for the day. These times are designed to invest in you and teach into various topics and issues relevant to your development as future worship pastors. The first term will begin with 2 day retreat instead of an Academy Training Day. The purpose of this is to set the tone for the year ahead, and a chance to also meet other Academy students. 

You’ll also be placed in monthly online learning hubs, lead by a tutor with worship pastor experience. In these groups, you'll journey through many topics during the year, as well as be set a number of assignments to complete.

Worship Central’s ‘The Week’ (a 5 day intensive retreat for worship leaders and pastors) will be a key part of the year, and students will also be involved in hosting the annual Worship Central Global Conference. 

Then on a weekly basis, you will be actively involved in the church to which you have applied - being invested in, serving and leading worship. The structure of this will look slightly different depending on which church you have applied to.

When is it?

The Academy will run from September 2017 to July 2018, though the exact dates will differ with the different church locations.

What is the Cost?

The Academy costs are met by each of the church's internship programmes, the exact detail of which may be slightly different from church to church.
