What is the Anabaptist Worship Network?
The goal of the Anabaptist Worship Network is to support worship and song leaders in making intentional, theologically grounded, and spiritually inspired choices about worship practices that respond to their local contexts. It seeks to connect congregations for conversation and learning, to resource the growing edges of Anabaptist worship, and to help communities transform by intentionally breaking down barriers.
What do we do?
Anabaptist Worship Network offers virtual and in person events, and facilitates a blog and facebook community. The directors can be found teaching courses on worship at Anabaptist institutions, and working with Voices Together ambassadors to help equip congregations towards meaningful worship. We are always evaluating how we can best serve Anabaptist worship by connecting leaders, resourcing congregations, and responding to our communities.
Connecting pastors, lay leaders, institutions, and congregations as they seek to create worship that enacts Christ’s hospitality.
Resourcing the traditional and growing edges of Anabaptist worship: historical and emerging styles of music, and diverse forms of prayer and worship.
Responding to our changing contexts by drawing a wider circle of faith, working to dismantle oppression through worship, and singing a new church into being.
