Alison Adam is a member of the Iona Community and her work is very much an expression of the Community's commitment to the renewal of worship. She works to enable churches and organizations to develop a more participative and engaging style of worship, which is relevant to today's world and yet still maintaining a strong liturgical style.
Alison worked with John Bell and the Wild Goose Resource Group. She was a member of the Wild Goose Worship Group from its inception in 1984, has featured in all their recordings, and continues to work in association with Wild Goose from time to time. Formerly an elementary school teacher and youth worker, Alison has worked with all ages in her career and continues to use these skills in her work.
Alison has a particular passion for getting folks singing using simply her hands and voice and the engaging "Wild Goose" style which has a crowd singing something African in four parts before they realize they're doing it! Global music plays a significant part in Alison's work, as she believes it connects us to the Body and to the body, as well as liberating us from the page when we sing!
At this event, we've asked Alison to include some seasonal music to take us into Advent and Christmas.
