Singing a new song to the Lord?

I’m really excited and enthused by what’s going on at my church 😀 Especially with music. Recently, people have felt the calling to be writing songs specific for our church, and there are now all sorts of ideas flying round. I really hope we get something off the ground with it. Some great songs and tunes have been composed, so there is a lot of mileage in following this route in Church life. I’m also hoping that I might be able to restart SATWAM (Spirit And Truth Worship Arts and Music) and that people may be interested in helping out. We’ll see how that goes…

God’s doing some amazing things at St Paul’s and I feel privileged to be a part of it! Do you have any suggestions to help us on our musical journey as a church? We have some really talented musicians and vocalists… so it would be great to nurture those talents and to grow them!!

I’ll leave you with these verses which really speak of the feeling and mood at my church at the moment:

Psalm 57

7 My heart, O God, is steadfast,
my heart is steadfast;
I will sing and make music.
8 Awake, my soul!
Awake, harp and lyre!
I will awaken the dawn.

9 I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;
I will sing of you among the peoples.
10 For great is your love, reaching to the heavens;
your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
let your glory be over all the earth.
