Songs2Serve Europe helps people from different cultures to worship Jesus together in unity, while expressing their variety in race and tongue so that people can meet God in the language and music of their hearts.
We do that by resourcing, equipping and training intercultural churches and networks.
We’re steadily building up a database of songs that we are translating from the different cultures.
Together with a team we call our co-creators, existing of musicians, song writers, worship leaders, and pastors we are compiling a database of songs to help intercultural churches. We translate, compose and arrange music from different cultures so that it is fitting for our churches. We love it when the origin of these songs is diverse.
We also offer some backing tracks, especially useful to smaller church plants, and we hope to gather more. Under Resources you can find a list of songs that are now well-known and that are being translated into another language or arranged in another cultural style in the backing track
Locally Songs2Serve organizes its ‘training the trainers’ day in a local network. We want to equip people to use intercultural worship and grow in the ability to take other people along with them. On this day, worship leaders or musicians from ICP churches from the European networks come together to attend workshops and gain inspiration on the theme of intercultural worship. Experienced musicians are invited, to train the participants in small groups. Topics covered could be vision building, playing intercultural songs, band coaching, vocal coaching, and more.
