The South West School of Worship (SOW) is designed for anybody aged 18+ who either leads or is in an area of influence within a worship team in Devon & Cornwall. Our heart for the SOW is to resource, equip and enable teams and leaders to be all that God has created them to be and called them to do, so it doesn't matter how big or small your church or team is. The course has been specially designed to fit around busy schedules with training taking place in evenings and weekends. The course fee of £350 covers all of your training, resources and lunches on teaching days.

Coaching sessions will take place during the months of October, February & April and will be tailored to a time that is suitable for you and your coaching group. These will either be in person or via video call, depending on what suits your group best. Groups will be no larger than 3 to ensure that you are receiving as much personal support & investment as possible. Your coach & group will be assigned to you on the first teaching day. We assign coaches & group members based on your passions and worship team role to ensure you get the coach most suited to you and your development.
