Worship 4 Today is a three-part course specially designed to train and equip all who lead worship in the local church - those with prior experience or none, musicians and the non-musical, ordained or lay, those who lead the prayers, operate the technology, employ the creative arts, or participate in any other way.
Developed and tested in the Diocese of Sheffield over the last five years, Worship 4 Today is now recognised as a national training resource and its publication is fully supported by the Liturgical Commission of the Church of England. The course:
Part 1 explores the basic ingredients of worship, our understanding of God, worship in the Old Testament, and basic leadership skills. It blends theology, history and practice in a dynamic, transformative programme.

Worship 4 Today is a vital resource to train and equip leaders of worship in a mission-shaped church. I have seen at first hand the effect it has had in transforming the worship of individuals and congregations. - Bishop Steven Croft
