Churches together and more!!

It’s been a tiring couple of days but its also been fantastic fun. Friday morning Alison and I led worship for the Freedom in Christ training course. It was a good time and we used some songs we haven’t done for a while ‘Looking in the sky’ for one which is fantastic song of worship and praise. Had a  well needed Costa afterwards!!! Mmmmm my favourite!! 🙂

Today, Sunday, we led worship for our 11am service and also at the 6:30pm churches together service. Both went well!! People were worshipping God. I love to spend time with people in worship. I consider a sung worship time successful when people are leaving the building talking about God and not mentioning the band at all! More of that Lord please. People being released into the freedom to worship God!! I pray for the barriers we all have to be broken down!!

At the 11am service we saw a number of people come into membership which was brilliant. Congratulations guys, you know who you are!! Three of them are members of our home group which was really cool and I got to welcome them!! There was a real feel of celebration and worship as we sung and danced and praised God!! I praise God for the privilege of being able to worship with these guys!

I also love the opportunity to get together with other churches as we did tonight in the churches together service. We have all sorts of difference in our styles and so on but we can still come together and worship God bringing a unity across the town. We need to see more of this!! Churches being united in their love of God and their mission to bring the love of God to those around them. Lets celebrate out differences in style and pull together with our unity in God!!

I managed to get a couple of photos this evening!! Firstly here are the guys in tonight’s team!! As you can see barking mad but their fantastic hard work means I can focus on God and His guiding for our worship!! They are a wonderful group of people to spend time with!! Thank you guys!!!

The view from my mic as people from churches all over Braintree head out to get coffee and head home!!

So although I’m tired I praise God that He has been very present with us and has empowered us to lead His worship!! I will never tire of worshipping God and love the fact that I get to do it with so many wonderful friends old and new!!

Psalm 150 says it all, may it always be so and I strive for verse 6 ‘Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!!!

May God bless you!!
