One of the things we can do during this season is to worship God and give glory to him. We've put together some playlists of songs you'll know from church for you to listen to and sing along with (you'll need a Spotify account but can create one for free). We'll continue to update these lists over the coming weeks.
This list is great for all the family, and features some of the songs we sing in church and at Holiday Club
This list features songs we sing at our 9.30am and 6pm services
This list features hymns we sing at our 11.15am service
Worship for Everyone is an organisation founded by Nick and Becky Drake, who have written loads of the songs we sing in our all age services. They are running some live family worship times at 4pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays and they're great fun - check them out by clicking here (they are on Facebook but you shouldn't need an account to watch).
We're putting together some of our past sermon series for you to listen to again - you can listen below through SoundCloud.
