Jubilate presents the Hymn Writers Workshop, a day of insight, practical training and fellowship for composers and lyricists alike.

In addition to the main sessions, workshops for composers will be led by Noël Tredinnick and Roger Peach, and those for lyricists led by Martin Leckebusch and Joel Payne. Drawing on their experience both in church music ministry and the writing and publication of numerous hymns and songs, they will deliver presentations and practical workshops, including an opportunity for writers to receive feedback on their own work.
