On Saturday 23rd March, at Watton-at-stone Methodist Church, 27 people gathered together for a really good worship training event called "The Wonder of Worship" or as we called it, The WoW event!

Opening Worship

After coffee, Revd Blair Kirkby led us on guitar in a time of worship to start the day. The singing was truly heavenly, and some angelic voices sang the harmonies!

Godly Play

The morning session, led by Revd John Fellows, a retired Methodist minister from Harpenden, was a fascinating session on Godly Play — using objects and props to bring Biblical stories to life.

John showed several different styles of Godly Play stories and also brought lots of resources for folks to see and handle.

Cafe Worship

In the afternoon, our own Revd Debbie Hodgson, led in a session on Cafe Worship that helped us to see the power of worship that is more informal, engaging, and refreshed with hot drinks and cake.

Debbie did a great job with an interactive cafe style worship (lots of things to "play with" at the tables) pointing out the difference between 'cafe worship' and 'cafe church', the latter being church that meets in a café!

It was so lovely sharing time with the local preachers and leaders of worship in a relaxed setting, and great to meet some of our neighbours from other circuits too.

All in all it was a really worthwhile day of fun, fellowship and learning together.
