Sorry for the controversial title.  Thought it might serve a purpose though.When I first got involved in playing worship music back in the late 80s, most worship leaders I saw were young guys in…Continue

I quit

Was in a Christian bookstore in Nashville the other day.  They had on quiet easy listening instrumental versions of Christian hymns and songs.  One of these was "My Jesus, I love thee".It irritated…Continue

"Hi Ian. We have been running ProPresenter for a couple of years which interfaces very nice with camera input and lyrics so you can read the lyrics but still see the worship team as well as you can add scriptures video's and images in."

"Ha! Toni - one of our favorite rants. He may not have everything of his out there. On his own website, he has chords, lead sheets etc. http://www.leadworship.com/song-charts/ It's strange that he doesn't also include lyrics alone. They…"

"Stevo, my friend, how did I know you'd reply. ;-) I hunted a while back for Paul Baloche lyrics for a couple of songs from Glorious, but could only find 'internet' versions. Maybe I didn't try hard enough."

"Agree about  the worship music industry trying to sell stuff. It's tiresome. But to be fair, it's hard to survive big or small in that "business". Proof that we don't need to be "professional" worship leaders,…"

"We use Songpro to display words, mostly because that was what was already here: we've paid the fee, it kind of works. I couldn't especially recommend it as it's cantankerous, clunky, deeply unintuitive and sometimes obstructive. One…"

Dear all,Some practical tips needed.  We are looking to do some things to bring the church slightly more up-to-date.Firstly, the computer that runs our projector is on it's way out and we will probably replace it soon, and funds have been agreed for this by the church.  What are your experiences with different packages for presenting lyrics onto screen for the worship?Secondly, keeping up to date with new songs coming out here, there and everywhere seems to get more and more difficult just by…See More
