WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING…
NEXUS CHURCH - WORSHIP ENCOUNTER
"I really enjoyed the way Andrew used the whole stage. When he worshiped or shared, he didn't stay fixed in the one position. He also was very open and keen to try anything/move musicians to different instruments - so good."
NEXUS CHURCH - Rehearsal with Andrew Ironside
" - Loved that rehearsal was literally a rehearsal, we actually moved around and worshipped enthusiastically as if it were the service.
- The chance to be creatively dynamic with song arrangements (key changes mid song, cuts to drums etc)
- Prayer before and after the rehearsals was also really powerful.
- Ministry of no tracks!!
- Understanding the "why" behind each song and articulating that as a team with a focus that helped minister to the congregation between songs.
An awesome night, thanks for the opportunity to stretch & grow creative team!" ❤️
"For me: seeing Andrew be really comfortable flowing from singing into speaking. Obviously he was comfortable doing that, and that meant we felt comfortable too! That's something I want to get good at..."
"Last night taught me the importance of thinking through how you will lead a song, even down to little details like where you stand, when you clap even in a rehearsal and how this can maximise the congregation's participation." 👍🏼
