For more than 20 years, Worship Live drew together the best of new writing for worship. Many poets, musicians, hymnwriters and liturgists whose work would become well known first published in its pages. Worship Live honoured and nourished the many crafts involved in writing effective resources for worship, honing skills and sharpening tools, as we have worked with worship makers over the years. But the editors have also, to their great delight, given first flight to many who emerged newly fledged, feeling the wind of the Spirit under their wings, but tentative in trusting to their new plumage.

First Flight Feathers is a celebration of Worship Live. It showcases a vibrant collection of items by writers and musicians grow and shows how they can develop into a community.

Gillian Warson is a freelance writer, educator and musician. She has written books numerous books on hymnody and hymn singing and has given conference papers and led workshops all over the world.

Janet Wootton served as a Congregational Minister before becoming Director of Studies for the Congregational Federation, UK. She is a hymnwriter and author and a former editor of Worship Live.
