The Worship Weekend: This will be time to hang out, worship together and go through the material from the Academy in greater depth. There will be teaching tracks exploring different kinds of worship and creativity. The Worship Weekend will be taught by external worship leaders, preachers and teachers from all over the UK.




For the third time running we are working with Divine Renovation UK as a key partner for The OHP Academy. DRUK are offering 5 parishes in group coaching the opportunity for their potential worship leader to take a space on this year’s worship Academy at 50% of the cost. Please state which parish you are applying through on your application form. Following your application, an additional Zoom meeting will be set up between the applicant, One Hope Project and the Parish Priest.

 FAQs ​

Can I still apply if I don’t have much experience in leading music in church?
Yes of course! The Academy covers a wide range of topics and practical guidance to take you through all you’d need to know for being involved in the music ministry in your parish.

I don’t play an instrument, but I do sing, is that okay?
Yes, very much okay! If you’ve got experience in singing in choirs, or singing lessons and have a passion for worship and music then The Academy will be a great thing for you.

Will I have time for my day job alongside the Academy?
Yes. The Academy will be an investment of your time, but we’re confident that it will be manageable alongside any full time job and other life commitments.

Is the One Hope Project Worship Weekend included?

Yes! Your fee includes this event, which will be packed full of more great teaching and lots of times to worship together. This weekend will be 7th - 9th July 2023.

Can I pay the fee in instalments?
Yes, you can split the cost into two instalments of £450 payable in January and then in May.

Are there bursary places available?

Yes. We don’t want the cost of The Academy to stop you from applying. Within the application form you can state whether you are applying for a bursary place and we will be in touch with you about this.

Do I have to be over 18?

Yes, The OHP Academy is run for anyone over the age of 18. We hope to run it again in the coming years so be sure to apply when you hit that age.


What if I can't make all the sessions?

We understand that life and commitments can be busy sometimes and therefore understand if you cannot make all of the sessions. However, we do strongly encourage you to attend everything as we are great believers of the saying “the more you put in the more you get out!” If you are in a position of not being able to make a session just let us know beforehand by emailing us at We also record the teaching sessions, so if you need to catch up on the material that is possible.
