The National Worship Conference is for you…

Musicians & Liturgists; Clergy & Lay

This conference provides unique opportunities for musicians and Liturgists to share and network ideas and resources. As this is a conference about worship much of our time in plenary and worship will draw upon the musical history and energy we share in the Anglican and Lutheran traditions, and of course beyond those traditions.

Rural & Urban Church

The materials, context and theme of this event are intended to fully embrace and include rural and urban church communities. We understand that both rural and urban church communities are vital centers of ministry and mission; that they have a story and resource to share, and that together we are the Church
