Dates and venues for Essence in 2018 will be published here soon.
Equipping for Spirit-led mission & worship using rhythm, movement & the prophetic
Essence is an intensive training course that equips and provides opportunities for Spirit-led mission, outreach and worship. Teaching is provided in three streams that are proven to partner well in street outreach to gather, engage and enable people to encounter the Holy Spirit and God’s living word.
Rhythm: gathering people and creating a vibrant atmosphere of worship. The Rhythm stream will help you discover your unique sound and develop your abilities to play in open drum circles and worship. Build your confidence to create rhythms and declare your love for Jesus, intercede and call people to encounter the Holy Spirit.
Movement: intentional movement that dynamically brings God’s life, light and colour to the streets. The Movement stream will take you on a personal journey to discover your unique dance style in response to the Holy Spirit. Build confidence to use your movement vocabulary in worship, intercession and the prophetic as an individual and within a group.
Spirit-led Encounters: bringing God’s love to the street through prophecy, spiritual insights and prayer. The Spirit-Led Encounters stream will provide practical training and explore creative ways to bring God’s heart and living word to people you encounter. Build your confidence to hear God and speak life and grace to people seeking spiritual answers.
Each day begins with devotions and biblical teaching together followed by practical sessions for each stream. During the course, the three streams blend together as we worship and go out into the community on mission and outreach.
