lyrics


Come, O Spirit of God

Come, O Spirit of God
Cause blind eyes to see.
In this day, awaken our land.
Come, O Spirit of power
Breathe life through Your church,
Come O Lord, bring heaven to earth,
Bring heaven to earth.


In every house where there is sorrow
Reaching out to comfort those who mourn.
Declaring freedom for the captives
We'll proclaim the favour of the Lord.

In every town across this nation
Reaching out to heal the broken hearts.
Releasing prisoners from the darkness
We'll proclaim the justice of our God.

In city streets weighed down by heartache
Reaching out with grace where there is shame.
Once shattered lives restored to wholeness
We'll display the splendour of the King.

scripture reading in this track


The Spirit of the LORD is on me; because he has anointed me to preach good news to the humble. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and an opening of the eyes to those who are bound; ... to comfort all who mourn; ... to give to them a garland for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness.

Isaiah 61:1-3a (NHEB) read by Samuel Oyediji

A Beautiful Prayer

Beautiful Tree Branches hanging low down

I think one of our deepest longings as humans is to know that there is a purpose for our lives, that we have a role to play in this world. Thankfully as Christians we can be certain that life isn’t just a random series of events. God the creator of the earth and the heavens Read More


An Ancient Celtic Blessing

hand in sunlight

“May the Road Rise Up To Meet You” is a beautiful old Celtic blessing. Blessings are a gift and ancient ones like these help us to become open channels for the fragrance of Christ to surround those we give out to. I love the references to creation – the sun, the wind, the rain – Read More


The Nicene Creed

White dove with hands raised

In August of this year, our church asked us if we might create a film recording of the Nicene Creed (this creed is an ancient declaration of the Christian faith dating back to A.D.325 and the early church communities). We decided to record many different voices because we wanted to build a diverse picture of Read More
