Young people hope to ‘Ignite’ church services

Ignite: a new form of worship
Ignite: a new form of worship

Young people in particular are invited to a church service with a difference this Sunday, January 24, both planned and performed by a church’s youth band.

Inglewhite Church Youth Band will lead the service at the church on Silk Mill Lane in the village from 7pm to 9pm and have called the event
“Ignite.”

Started in 2013, the band initially met occasionally to play new Christian worship songs and learn instruments, taught by church youth pastor John Kirby.

But they gradually started to meet every week to polish their musical skills and work better as a team.

John says they have now led many sessions and are beginning to advance in their skills, as will be evident this Sunday.

He said: “The church is very proud of their young people and have been very supportive in helping them integrate their new style of worship into their services.

“We are very excited about the event and encourage the continued development into the future.”
