Movement in Worship is a relational network. One of the ways we outwork this is by establishing bases.

There are currently nine ‘Movement in Worship’ Bases. Each base has a Core Team which includes local / regional Church oversight providing covering, anointed movers, teachers and practical support personnel. They outwork differently depending on the needs of their regions.

Regular courses, from the range of different courses on offer, are run at these bases. The bases aim to train up local people to promote MIW in their region. Teams from each base also travel throughout their regions teaching workshops and dancing at events:
