Called to Worship
Christians are called to worship God with the whole of their lives (Romans 12:1). However, we are not meant to be solitary but called as a body, a church, to come together and worship God (Colossians 2:15-17). He also invites us to come regularly together into his presence with praise and prayer for teaching from his Word. These experiences of worship should be amongst the richest in our lives, joyful, inspiring and awesome.
Worship is the natural outpouring from believers to express their love for the Lord. Worship can include songs, prayer, mediation, testimony, poetry, drama and should encompass all ages. Worship is an important and integral part of our meetings.
Our worship is live and is led by our worship leaders, musicians and singers. We sing contemporary Christian songs and praise God with songs that churches all over the world are singing. Our band currently includes keyboards, guitarists and drummers.
