Songwriting Weekend

Illumine hosts a Songwriting Weekend each summer. Each songwriter who participates is challenged to write a brand new song for congregational use, completely from scratch. Over the course of the weekend, there are also timed songwriting challenges, group discussions, individual writing time, devotions, a talent show, and it all culminates in a New Song Showcase in which each participant plays their new composition for the other participants as well everyone else who is able to attend that Sunday morning. 

This year’s Songwriting Weekend will take place from May 30-June 2, 2019 in Rock Hill, SC. Interested in attending? Contact us at

We have decided to make all lead sheets and demo MP3s available for free download. If you enjoy and get use out of them, we ask that you would consider donating $2 per song that you use.
