From Our Lips to Him...

Time of Worship
February 2007

Hallelujah! O my soul, praise God! All my life long I'll praise God, singing songs to my God as long as I live. Psalm 146:1 (The Message)

We made a journey into the city today for Hillsong Church. It is a vibrant church of 20, 30 and 40 somethings that meets in the Dominion Theater on Tottenham Court Road (home of the WE WILL ROCK YOU musical). I tell you....if you are looking for an awesome worship experience, this IS the place. Hillsong started in Australia and is well known for their worship CD's that you can find in stores and online via iTunes. They also have churches in Paris and Berlin where they are sharing Christ's love and preaching the Gospel.

This morning was good for me spiritually. It was a time to come to the feet of my Savior and be with Him, to praise His name in word and song and to have fellowship with other believers. My soul was renewed and filled with His love for me. I snapped this pic as we were singing. The theater was packed like a rock concert and hands across the place were reaching up to God in praise. It was awesome! I am hoping that in some small way the excitement I was experiencing is coming through this image....

This sounds like a church my brother and his family attend near Atlanta. The music was quite loud and appeals to a younger crowd, but the preaching was excellent. I'll admit I was a little surprised at that.

sounds great...there's nothing like the excitement and energy of vibrant, alive, corporate worship! it's been hard to find a good church in our rural area....something i miss greatly! i didn't realize there was a Hillsong church in London- cool!

How incredible! It sounds like such an awesome church. There is nothing like leaving worship time feeling inspired & rejuvenated! That is how it SHOULD be! Glad you had such a great Sunday. =)

Neat shot Anna. Most important though is you had a great worship experience. We have tried large churches and ended up in a very small church. My kids prefered that believe it or not.

Great message in today's post...Thanks.

That sounds so amazing!! I love churches like that. Ones that you LOVE to go to. Ones that fill you up. That rocks!!

It's so nice to read this. It's encouraged me no end. Personally, I also have always preferred the smaller churches. My late husband used to do a lot of preaching and it was always in small congregations and he loved it. He also was involved with Open Air Campaigners where he used to preach on the street corners with his sketch board. What great times we had!

Thanks Anna for the refreshing time in your blog!

Anna, I so appreciated your post today. Hillsong worship is awesome. We sing many of their songs in our services. God is good and it's exciting to know people are in worship all around the world.
