British worship leader and song writer, Tim Hughes, will be visiting South Africa in October with a team from Worship Central, following the success of their tour in 2013 as reported in Gateway News last year. Hughes and Worship Central will be leading nights of worship and hosting workshops to equip worship leaders, musicians and worshippers.
Harvest Christian Church in Port Elizabeth will host Hughes and team on October 7 where the team will lead a night of worship following a Worship Leaders Workshop that will take place on the same day.
City Hill Church in Durban will host Hughes and team on October 8. Martin Smith joins them on October 11 for their final worship night in Cape Town.
The Worship Central team will also be ministering at the Johannesburg Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit on October 10. The event, which is focused on stirring up and calling out the core leadership of churches around the world, has already been sold out.
Hughes, well-known for his song writing, has penned well-known worship songs like “Happy Day”,“Here I am to worship” and with Worship Central has produced songs like “Let it be known” and “Spirit break out.” At the tender age of 18, he answered the call on his life, spending a year in South Africa working with kids and leading worship while honing his God-given gift of song writing. He has also been involved with Soul Survivor events around the world since joining the ministry in 1997. He is currently the worship pastor at Holy Trinity Brompton, the home of Alpha International, after joining the church in 2005. Hughes heads up the Alpha International worship resource, Worship Central.
The Worship Central movements’ vision is to train, equip and resource those involved in worship ministry, as a way of empowering the local church. Since its launch in 2006, thousands of worship teams and churches have attended these training events, with many more visiting their website for online practical resources. “There’s a real need to train worship leaders spiritually, practically and with good leadership skills,” writes Hughes who shared that the passion of the Worship Central team is to see the worship life of the local church and around the world explode.
The Worship Leaders’ Workshop, hosted at Harvest Christian Centre in Port Elizabeth on October 7 is free of charge but space is limited. Worship Leaders and Worship Pastors only are encouraged to RSVP to email@example.com. Coffee, tea and lights snacks will be provided at the Workshop.
