Our worship style is informal, participatory and creative, with much ‘space’ for the Spirit! We often meet ‘in the round’ though at times (especially at Next Wave weekends) we abandon the chairs in favour of freestyle worship. The underfloor heating in the Upper Room makes sitting/lying on the floor a pleasure…
We seek to encourage ‘holistic’ worship in which people can use their whole-selves (as in fact their whole lives) to worship Jesus. Movement in Worship has been part of our expression for many years (we are the Scottish base for MIW) and people will regularly dance, often using colourful banners or other props. The colours and sounds reflect the vibrancy of the Throne Room. The dance is not choreographed, but through workshops and summer schools many have learnt a ‘unique movement vocabulary’ to communicate with.
Other creative arts, painting, poetry, drama are encouraged. We have paints and materials available.
Percussive and free-flowing rhythms as a basis for extempore singing and prophetic contribution are our norm, with a gathering developing organically in response to the promptings of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
