Summer School 2014

An exciting collaboration between Movement In Worship and Psalm Drummers! The 2014 Scotland Summer School will explore the dynamics of worship and mission through movement and percussion.  We’ll be connecting land, people and the Holy Spirit through worship, intercession and the prophetic.

Building on a devotional and Biblical foundation the school splits into two training streams, ‘Movement’ and ‘Percussion’.  Each participant will choose which stream they will do for the week.

The ‘Movement Stream’ includes intercessory and prophetic movement, an exploration of different dance styles and the use of props.  All participants will be prepared for moving on the streets.

Through group work the ‘Percussion Stream’ explores worship and prayer using rhythm.  You will be challenged and helped to become more creative in using your playing to connect with God and to communicate Him to others.

These streams merge together to take worship and intercession out into the community.  Plus one of the highlights is always the community that is built throughout all aspects of the week including the fun social evenings.

Who can come?

No previous experience in dance or drumming is needed as experienced trainers will be facilitating the week.

The minimum recommended age is 12 years and there’s no maximum age!  Please contact us if you have children under 12 years who would like to attend.  All under 16s need a participating guardian with them, who will be responsible for their behaviour and engagement.

Costs:  £170  (or £150 early bird rate before 30th April)

(EB rate cannot be combined with MIW Associates discount rate)

Please note: this does not include food & accommodation

The course content:

Each of the 5 teaching days will start at 9.30am and will include prayer, worship, biblical teaching and practical application that will build as the week progresses.  There are 2 mission events where we’ll be taking our worship out into the city of Edinburgh.

We’re also transitioning from the teaching section of the week into a ‘Next Wave’ continuous worship event, where participants can come to as much or as little as they like.  During this time we’ll have our final outreach a Spirit.Rhythms event where we’ll be inviting the local community to come into the Wellsprings venue where we’ll have a drum circle with dance using a range of prophetic evangelism tools …  let’s see what God will do!

Important: Edinburgh Festival Time!

August is a particularly exciting month of the year to be in Edinburgh as it is Festival Time!  There’s lot going on and the Edinburgh Festival Fridge is the largest art festivals in the world.  While this is a great time to be in the city, it also means that Edinburgh accommodation is highly sought after, therefore we recommend that you book accommodation as soon as possible.
