Rev Loraine Priestley-Smith and Rev Jessica M. Campbell are co-teaching.

For many years worship has centered around words. Words in prayers, sermons  and songs. While words matter, they don’t always speak to the heart and spirit. Through multisensory worship we can experience the divine. Spirit waits to move among us and be known. Pastors and worship teams are invited to a 3 hour training focused on integrating the various senses in worship in a way that encourages these deeper connections with God.
