Songwriters Circle

Saturday, May 7, 2011
'The Music Box' (532 Norton Parkway)

You may not have been able to make it to our last songwriters circle gathering a couple of months back. You may not consider yourself a musician, or a poet, or an instrumentalist at all, and you may have never fully completed an original song. None of those things should stop you from coming to the second ever songwriters circle gathering tomorrow at 4pm.

The songwriters circle is intended to be a space of sharing, brainstorming, and workshopping the melodies, chords and lyrics God has put inside of each one of us, with the goal of creating worship music that can serve the broader community. We have met once before, and as we listened to one another's songs, things that began as fragments ended up being developed and completed. Some of the songs from the gathering have since been used in communal worship at ECV and elsewhere, and we were all able to be part of the creative process.

The hope is for the Circle to be a safe space to share song ideas, and to result in worship songs that express the heart of people in the ECV community and help us as a group connect to God. If you have an idea for a song that's been brewing for a while, or some lyrics written, or any parts of a song at any stage of the process, you are more than welcome to come and share tomorrow. Bring a friend, all skill levels are welcome.

If you have any questions, or if you have a song idea but won't be able to make it to the gathering tomorrow, feel free to email me at
