The Need

Over the last ten years we have become increasingly aware of the urgent need for great worship pastors for the local church. We regularly receive requests from church leaders asking us to help recruit new worship leaders for them. This need is only going to become greater with an accelerated vision for church planting.


Worship Central Academy

Worship Central have a well established training program that has been identifying, training and equipping exceptional Worship Leaders for nearly eight years. Through this program dozens of young leaders have stepped up into leadership roles within the local church, leading and cultivating creative and transformational worshipping communities around the UK.


Who is it for?

Do you have experience in leading worship?
Do you have a heart for God, worship, and the local church?

The Academy is designed for emerging worship leaders actively involved in leading in their church, with a heart and calling to serve as a worship pastor.



The Academy gives you the opportunity to encounter God on a deeper level and to grow as a follower of Christ, both individually and in community.



Theological study, worship teaching and practical masterclasses will equip you both spiritually and practically as a worship pastor.



Through leadership training and serving as part of a local church community you will be empowered to be a leader.
