Raising The Standard

by Sue Rinaldi
We really do believe that Children's and All-Age music should aim to be high-quality, musically and lyrically. Children's ministry favourite 'Duggie Dug Dug' has this principle in mind when he writes and his latest album OOMPH confirms this. 16 brilliant songs with scores available and a stupendous Larry and Harry...

What Makes A Great Big Song?

by Sue Rinaldi
A catchy tune seems to be the starting point for a good children’s song. Nigel Hemming of Vineyard Kids and the ‘Great Big God’ brand, says that in addition to being catchy, “it must have a good vibe! It’s a myth that all children’s songs have to be bouncy or...

All-age Worship

by BIG Ministries
I’m so passionate about all-age worship, and believe it should give us all (including adults and introverts!) a safe place to be who we are, to figure out how we fit in the body of Christ, and an uplifting forum to worship however we find the most comfortable.

How Does Play Help With All-age Worship?

by BIG Ministries

What Is Playing All About?

by BIG Ministries

Playing At Worship

by BIG Ministries
All-age worship is perhaps a bit like Marmite… you either love it or hate it. Well, I love it! It often gets a bad press, but I hope that with a bit of a re-think we can re-envision and inspire our churches by re-imagining it.
While researching for my dissertation (on all-age worship)...

Top Tip - Space To Pray

by Doug Horley
The end of a quiet song is a great place to pause and pray over the children and to ask the Holy Spirit to come and speak to them. I keep that quiet moment going by playing some chords on an instrument in the same key as the song or by...

Top Tip - Do Fewer Songs More Often

by Doug Horley
It takes time for children to learn actions and the first time I do an action song with them they sometimes don’t sing. If you sing the song a few times over a period of weeks they’ll get to know the song and will start singing along. When you hear them, encourage...

Top Tip - No Big Gaps
