There are currently six ‘Movement in Worship’ Bases ...
Each base has a Core Team which includes local / regional Church oversight providing covering, anointed movers, teachers and practical support personnel. They outwork differently depending on the needs of their regions.
Regular courses, from the range of different courses on offer, are run at these bases. The bases aim to train up local people to promote MIW in their region. Teams from each base also travel throughout their regions teaching workshops and dancing at events:
Brighton - England
City Gate Church
Movement in Worship began in Brighton and there is still a strong focus on worship and creativity there. Regular MIW workshops are hosted there and in recent years the team there have been involved in hosting 'Stepping Beyond' a creative worship event which happens every couple of months.
The Brighton Base Team is led by Andy Au, Kirsty Hallett and Tina Johnson.
Watford - England
Watford Community Church
In recent years many key Movement in Worship people have been clustering together in the Watford area. This base is emerging in response to all God is doing here.
