Training for Leading Worship

Frances leads workshops and training courses on many aspects of music and worship in churches, schools and colleges, (even occasionally in pubs!) on subjects such as:

  • Songs of Sorrow and Salvation: music for Lent, Holy Week & Easter
  • Demystifying Music and Take Note: learning to read written music from scratch
  • Singing for the Scared: informal singing training for those who think they can't sing
  • CCRS Liturgy in Schools module in the Diocese of Westminster
  • INSET for primary / secondary school staff or chaplains
  • Becoming a parish cantor
  • Vocal health and technique for singing in worship
  • Combining the organ with other instruments
  • Widening your church's musical horizons with worship music from many sources
  • Making the most of what you've got when your church has limited musical resources

Frances runs Deanery training days for parish musicians across the Diocese of Brentwood, and has led Diocesan music training days in Westminster, Wrexham, Shrewsbury, Salisbury, and contributed to training lay ministers in the Dioceses of Bradford, Worcester and St Albans, and ordinands through SEITE and ERMC.  In 2016, Frances was awarded the ARSCM for her contributions to clergy training.  

Frances is experienced making music for worship with children of all ages and abilities, in primary and secondary schools, and SEN schools.  She designed and led the primary school liturgy used by Cardinal Vincent Nichols to introduce the papal encyclical Laudato Sii' to the British press in June 2016.
