In the gospel of Matthew , Jesus tells us to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind”. This He says “is the great and first commandment”.
Worship is the natural response to human desire. For many it can be money, fame or popularity. Being a Christian is about realising who Jesus is and joyfully placing Him where he deserves; at the centre of our lives as the focus of all our worship.
As a worship band we are privileged to bear the responsibility of leading others in worship of Jesus. Whilst we strive for musical excellence, the pre-requisite of being a member of the band is to have a passionate and devoted heart for Jesus. It isn’t about the singing of songs, it’s about standing tall in a dark and decaying world and reflecting God’s glory.
Our hope is that new worship leaders and band members will rise up from the congregation and that we’ll see more songs being written from members of the Church. We provide music lessons for those who don’t yet play instruments but who have a heart for worship. We encourage members of the Church to write their own songs to Jesus. You can find chord sheets for a selection of Firwood Church songs in the Resources section of the website.
If you have any questions about worship or are a member of the Church and wish to join the band, speak to Jonny on Sunday or email: Jonny.Evans@firwoodchurch.com
