Worship Music Survey – tvcoc

Our style of worship has developed over the years. Most of our congregations have moved from an a cappella hymn-based Church of Christ style to a mix of hymns, choruses, worship songs and other genres. Such diversity of worship music reflects the diverse backgrounds and preferences in our congregations today. That’s were we’ve been, and where we are. But where are we going? Worship music is more varied than at any previous time. From plainsong to Hillsong we have an extensive menu available. Access to worship music is more open than ever. Radio, the web, smart phones and the like mean we’re never more than a click away from music. The worship team want to make the most of new ideas while not neglecting what is good in our current approach. Answering the questions below will give us some guidance. Your comments will help us to keep what is helpful, while exploring the new.

1. Do you listen to music on Christian radio stations / online? If so, which ones? What is it about the music on that station you like?

2. List three of your favourite worship artists / albums / groups and what you like about them. • • •
3. Which songs or types of songs that you listen to would you like to see us add to our times of corporate worship?

Do you have any other thoughts you think would be useful for the worship team?

Thank you and God bless,

Malcolm

 

ODAAT Program – Say No to a Coffee in November to help….

ODAAT offers effective services for substance misusers who are serious about recovery.
How ODAAT works
 

How ODAAT works

A significant factor in our success has been our tried and tested emphasis on empowerment for our clients and the value of peer support.

Delivered through our recovery houses which are closely monitored and supervised by staff, but are deliberately not staffed 24 hours a day, residents assume personal and individual responsibility for their abstinence and recovery one day at a time. The regular planned and supervised involvement of Graduate ex-residents at every level of the programme creates a powerful sense of togetherness, mutual support, community and proof that individuals can use the programme to succeed. Indeed graduates are quite clear that these two pillars of the programme are a central part of its success for them. This is complemented by: one to one and group counselling, 12-step therapy groups, relapse prevention, anger management and life skills groups as well as social and sporting activities.

There are five distinct stages to the ODAAT programme and two ‘points of entry’.

1. Medicated and nursed detoxification (referral to external detox)

2. Pre-admission (2-21 days)

3. 1st Stage Programme (3 months)

4. 2nd Stage Programme (3 months)

5. Post-graduation support (Aftercare) (8 weeks to 1 year +)
