Outside Worship

Outside Worship is a collective of music makers bound together by our love of Jesus and born out of a desire for community in worship leading and songwriting. Our heart is to create space for meaningful and transformative encounters with God through worship in Spirit and truth.

We are dreaming up a fellowship of songwriters, worship leaders, artists, poets and innovators to press into God's heart for the outcast and disconnected, those hungry for belonging and for the presence of God.
