WEST has launched an event called Songburst, which the Bible school hopes will become a regular slot in coming years.
Running from 23-27 July, Songburst will be a blend of Bible teaching, workshops and performance, designed for Christian musicians who wish to enhance their skills and increase their understanding of their role in worship contexts.
According to WEST, Songburst marks the beginning of a collaborative venture between the theological college and Sound of Wales (SoW).
SoW is a group of professional, Christian musicians dedicated to seeing the young people of Wales affected by a Christ-centred, Word-centred gospel.
Coinciding with this, WEST is seeking to introduce a BA (Hons) programme. This will aim to establish a comprehensive training in the field of contemporary worship music, based upon a reformed theological foundation.
Details will appear on the WEST web site. Places at Songburst can be pre-booked at firstname.lastname@example.org
