Yesterday (26 March) at our monthly Enablers meeting we considered all the feedback you kindly provided in respect of holding our Conferences. A majority favoured continuing to hold an annual event (even if some choose to attend biennially). Grafton Hall was also preferred. We will be going ahead with planning for a conference for 2015, expected to be in late November as previously.
We will update you all as to venue when we have that information.
It is not too soon to consider who might most benefit from the experience, especially new MST members or Council members.
Some of you have been anticipating the availability of our demo tracks of the songs we learned at Conference this year. Thanks for your patience. I did promise them by Advent, and now they’re ready after digital editing and mastering to polish them up and make them as consistent as possible. We did a great job given the limits of time, setting and resources, supported by the talents of Josh Jones and Sandy Robertson.
Please use them to familiarize music groups and congregations, but don’t forget to have a suitable licence for reproducing words or music.
The two most used are: LicenSing (more for mainline, liturgical congregations)
CCLI favoured by congregations with more contemporary worship song styles.
You can download the tracks individually from Soundcloud right now.
