Worship resources archive

Archived worship resources assist worship leaders with material and ideas for offering worship in many contexts. This page houses resources that have previously been gifted to the Synod for use on our webpage.

The main worship resources page hosts updated links for the coming weeks, and for regular providers of worship material within the Synod of Victoria and Tasmania.
