What Is Worship

It’s what we do together to celebrate and show thanks to our sovereign, faithful God.

There are endless reasons to worship God, but at the heart of the matter lies this truth: worshipping God is the main purpose for which humans were created (Psalm 29:1–2). You and I were made to worship God. The main role of the Church is to glorify and worship God through Jesus Christ (1 Peter 2:5)

To worship is to recognise, honour, and express the worthiness of God that He is due as our Maker and our Redeemer.

When we worship our heavenly Father through Jesus Christ, we experience a deep connection with Him and worship is how we meet with God and praise Him for His goodness, love, mercy, grace, wisdom, beauty, truth, holiness, compassion, might, and every other aspect of His character: “Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God.” (Psalm 100:1–3, NIV).

Through worship, we celebrate God’s presence and power. We grow closer to Him as He speaks to hearts and makes His home in our lives. His will becomes our will, and we are transformed. Not only does worship change us, but it also makes God known to others and changes their lives, too: “He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD” (Psalm 40:3, NLT). Our worship speaks to what God has done in us and what He can also do for others.

How Can I Get Involved?

There are many ways that you can be involved in worship at Life Church. Maybe you could support the tech team with streaming live church or help with putting lyrics on the screen or sound in the building?

Maybe you love to sing your praises to God, or play a musical instrument? There are lots of ways of worshipping God and maybe you can think of another way that you would like to worship possibly with Art of another creative ministry.

If you are considering being part of the tech team you don’t need to have any experience as we can provide all the training that you need. If you feel that God is calling you to sing in the worship team, you should be able to sing in tune and be comfortable with others hearing your voice! If you feel that you want to play in the band you should be relatively proficient, and as a guide you should be at least grade 5 standard (although you don’t need to have done your exams!).

If you’re under 18 and would like to think about serving you’re also very welcome.

To be part of the worship team, we would expect you to have a loving and on-going relationship with Jesus, so as you serve you are able to bring the heart of God to your worship.

If you feel like God is stirring you, or maybe has already been speaking to you about serving in the worship team, please get in touch with Rachel Wright.
