EMMANUEL Worship will score a number of firsts next month.
The group, which is the worship ministry of Emmanuel Covenant Community in Brisbane, will record its first CD of original songs during Emmanuel Worship’s first night rally called Firestarter.
It will be part of a conference called Ignite 2001, which will be held from September 27-30 and will celebrate ‘the fire of God in our lives’.
Luke Plant, who is a member of the events promotions committee, said the CD would be recorded live at the rally to be held on the Saturday night of the conference.
‘It will be a full CD and a live recording of all the original songs written by members of the Emmanuel Worship team,’ he said.
‘It’s an opportunity for people to take a bit of the Firestarter inspiration home with them.’
He said although the conference would be held at Clairvaux MacKillop College, Upper Mt Gravatt, the live recording would take place at a rally at the Nathan campus of Griffith University.
‘That rally is open to anyone, not just conference participants.’
Luke said the conference would be split into two streams, each comprising a choice of seminars and practical workshops.
‘The worship/arts stream will develop the skills and abilities of music leaders and musicians, dancers and dramatic artists, liturgists, choir members and the people responsible for sound in their churches or organisations.
