About Us

The Worship Zone has been set up to inspire, encourage and resource churches of all sizes as well as small groups and other organisations.

The team behind The Worship Zone are all passionate and experienced people working in different areas relating to music and worship. ​


Sometimes a lack of resources or available musicians can hamper the growth of a church or small group. The Worship Zone is designed to assist and inspire you in improving your communal worship times whatever your situation.
