“We are an international network of passionate, dynamic and creative worshippers. We seek to raise the profile of creativity in worship and mission by modelling and inspiring others in movement and dance.”
We are an international network of passionate, dynamic and creative worshippers. We see ourselves more as a community of worshippers, a family of families, rather than a ministry or organisation. Dance, creativity, liturgical dance, banner worship flags are all great and we use a lot of these things, but they are not our focus. For us the most important thing is to worship God with everything.
Our story began in 1980 when much to his surprise Andy Au found himself led by God to move and dance in worship. This was not the usual ‘floaty feminine’ style that often depicts worship dance, but a man moving as a man before God giving everything with no dance background – raw, powerful and strong. Over the years the Movement in Worship family has grown nationally and internationally as people have caught the vision to worship God with everything in their unique way and to release others to do the same. We’re totally up for continuing to expand with like-minded creative worshippers, so if this sounds like you, come and join the journey! All are welcome!
Our vision is to be contagious: To raise the profile of creativity in worship by modelling and inspiring others in movement and dance. We have danced and taught at Churches, events and conferences throughout the UK and all over the world. We specialise in releasing people into freedom to worship creatively with the whole of who they are; body, mind and spirit.
We see journeying with God as a continuous flow with two main directions which are intrinsically linked: “Worship – breathing in” coming into Gods presence and “Mission – breathing out” taking Gods love and presence out to the world. In recent years our vision for worship has been expanded to reflect this. Firstly, we’ve been developing inclusive creative worship events called …Stepping Beyond to go deeper into Gods presence. Secondly, using worship in mission, by taking intercession and worship out onto the streets.
