Saturday 16th Sept was the first ever "Recharge: A Heart for Worship" event, held at St Marys in Monmouth and led by the 4pm at the Priory service, part of St Marys Church. It was a day to bring people together, of learning and training, of music and worship, craft, food and fun! It all started with St Marys Church choir leading us with a beautiful anthem conducted by Thomas Mottishead, the director of music, before heading into Abide With Me and then moving into more contemporary hymns and worship, all ably led by Jez Piper and his worship band – Recharge Worship. Then there was a wealth of training workshops to choose from covering all sorts of topics from sound and lighting at church, to how to lead worship when you have no musicians or looking into new technology to support churches. Whilst all the workshops were running the free cafe and free creative crafty area for kids were open, encouraging people to drop in, stay a while and get to know each other. The day finished with a wonderful time of worship led by our amazing band – Recharge Worship - consisting of people from 4 different South Wales churches, brought together to make a powerful and wonderful sound. With teaching from Patrick Hutching from 4pm at the Priory, and free hotdogs, cakes and drinks for everyone, and a time of fellowship, we left feeling uplifted, fulfilled and enlightened. It was great to meet people from churches near and far, tourists popping in and staying; and to work together with the team at St Marys to worship together. We look forward to holding similar events in the future, and to Recharge: A Heart for Worship returning next year!
