We had a really terrific time leading worship at the Fresh Expressions Rural Conference 2017. Entitled "Dying to Live", it was full of inspiring and honest stories of God's church taking bold risks in rural contexts (read a general report on the conference here). We were encouraged by the focus on "daring to fail" and the exhortation that "a small church is not a failed large church any more than a tangerine is a failed orange"!

Here are some of the resources we used during the worship times:
