What we've been singing...

We love singing. God loves singing (Zeph 3:17). Singing together is one of the great blessings of being a Christian. Christian Songs are declarations: in song we declare God's glory in the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Christian songs are expressions of emotion: in song we pour out our hearts to our God in devotion, praise and joy but also in repentance, even lament and confusion. Christian songs are exhortations: in song we encourage and urge one another on to keep following Jesus as we acknowledge together and repeat the truths of HIs work for us. So it's good to sing!

As we choose our songs at church week in week out we're trying to choose songs that fulfil each of the purposes set out above. We're looking for songs with rich theology to express the glory of the gospel. We're looking for songs that allow us to express our feelings to God. We're looking for songs that draw in not only me as the individual but bring us altogether.

We try to do that by choosing the best of the old and the best of the new, which means there are always a few new songs lined up. If you'd like to listen to some of our latest choices again to get to know them a bit better, or even preview some of the new songs coming up, here's a brief playlist to get your started.
