Movement in Worship has been in existence for over 30 years and is based in Brighton, UK. Over the years we have created a MIW network of people who resonate with our vision and ethos to worship God with the whole of who we are, body, mind and soul. You can see more on www.miw.org.uk and on our ‘Movement In Worship” Facebook page.
Over the last 7 years we have enjoyed sharing our journey with a group of friends linked with the Psalm Drummer’s network. Together we have raised the profile of creativity in church and at Christian gatherings. Drumming and movement is a natural partnership and together we have taken our worship outside to intercede in high places and to reach out in mission. This work resonates with the very fabric of who we are and we believe affects the whole of creation for God’s glory.
MIW Rhythm Makers – a new adventure
We would love you to be the first to know about a new stream we have started at MIW called ‘Rhythm Makers’. We want to provide an opportunity for people of all abilities to engage through rhythm in worship and mission as part of our work. MIW Rhythm Makers is an open collective using rhythm, movement, dance, prayer and prophesy in worship. Our aim is to experience the joy and freedom of worshipping God together with all our creativity and skills.
Rhythm Makers is born out of a shared experience with our Psalm Drummer friends and it will be led by Michelle Tennens, Simon Edwards and Yvonne Au who are experienced creative worship facilitators.
In addition, if you have been part of the Psalm Drummer’s open group meeting structure which has now ceased, it is with Terl Bryant’s and the Psalm Drummer core team’s full support that we would like to invite you to explore Rhythm Makers as a new place to connect.
Become part of MIW Rhythm Makers
Please come and see whether you would like to join this new adventure as part of the MIW collective.
First connection at Essence
One of the main ways that people can relationally connect in is in attending a week long summer event, which has now been rebadged as ‘Essence’. Its heart is to call the ‘essence’ of people into the presence of God and call the presence of God into the ‘essence’ of people, whether they be Christian or not.
This year we have two ‘Essence’ weeks with dedicated teaching on rhythm in worship, prophetic expression, intercession and mission. So pack your bags and join us in Edinburgh or Colorado, USA. We’d love you to join us for one of these weeks where you will get the understanding of who we are and whether you would like to journey with us. Please see www.miw.org.uk for more info.
We have other thoughts on how we can develop ‘MIW Rhythm Makers’ but this is just the beginning. The team coming together to start the adventure is Michelle Tennens, Simon Edwards and Yvonne Au. Together they will shape ‘MIW Rhythm Makers’’. Join us on this new adventure…
