What people are saying about the training...
“The benefits were immediate and fundamental. Everything from learning to play together,
to the importance of listening, working with the PA team, and basic but critical stuff like how
to do a sound check. I would wholeheartedly recommend this to any church leader who wishes
to find a way to meaningfully provide input for their worship team.”
Nick Todd - Bridge Community Church, Bristol
"Thought you might be interested to hear that we applied a lot of what we learnt yesterday at our service this morning... to other songs too. And had several comments to say how good it was - including our vicar...! So wonderful to have that opportunity to develop as a band, we are already working together in a different way, discussing how best to do the various sections etc. And we are appreciating each others strengths in a different way too."
Kristine Mole - St Giles Church, Nottingham
"Great weekend of worship & equipping with Mike Sandeman - sensitive, practical, professional
and friendly; thanks Mike! Highly recommended."
Jonathan Le Tocq - Church On The Rock, Guernsey
"Thank you so very very much for everything on Saturday - you were totally brilliant and it
was a real joy to have you with us! I've had so much positive feedback from people about
the training - thank you for being so flexible with your input and so inspirational and honest!"
Gillian Tuck - Above Bar Church, Southampton
"Thank you for the biblical input you gave too; it really helped us to focus on our purpose.
It was obvious to me this morning in the service that the musicians who were playing had
listened well and taken on board a lot of your advice, and the sound was good."
Janice Jackman - Carey Baptist Church, Reading
"Thanks so much for coming up last week to join us. Since you were with us I've had constant
thanks to pass on from the folks here and a steady stream of enthusiastic people coming up
to me full of new ideas and enthusiasm!"
Steve Nicholson - St Andrew The Great Church, Cambridge
"I wanted to thank you for the input you gave to my band in particular. I know we all found it
really helpful, and were actually quite surprised how good we were capable of sounding! I have
spoken to the guys and they are all up for meeting regularly mid-week to practice - because as
you showed us in that hour - it really can make a huge difference when it is done right!"
Juliet Johnson - Bristol
"Thank you so much for coming to work with us, we had many positive comments and much of your
advice will help us to be more disciplined; there is potential to better serve our congregation and we
are all now inspired to improve!"
Jo Allen - Church of Christ the Servant King, High Wycombe
"We all really wanted to say a very very big thank you to you for the day. We all felt we learnt a
great deal and feel very positive and enthusiastic about going forward."
John Taylor - Hosanna Church, Worthing
"As well as several helpful tips that we can put into practice immediately, the day has given me an
understanding for where we are 'at' as a music ministry, from which we can inspire some helpful
discussions about our focus for the future. Stephen our sound engineer found your advice particularly helpful."
Chris Steynor - Southover Church, Lewes
