WORSHIP MINISTRY at Sussex Wesleyan Church
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so! (Psalm 107:2a)
“When Jesus reaches into a person’s life and touches them in a way that brings change… This person tends to respond in praise. In thanksgiving. In giving honour and glory to a good and loving God! THIS is worship!”
Our worship ministry is a humble offering in response to our triune God, who is both Lord and Lamb, as revealed in His Word and by His Spirit.
We are intentional about cultivating a diverse musical style that reflects God’s heart for unity and meets a wide range of personalities. We draw from a rich pool of old, new, and newer songs to empower the voice of our people’s worship. Some of our favourite’s are, “Bless the Lord” by Matt Redman, “In Christ Alone” by Getty and Townend, “How He Loves” by John Mark McMillan.
We hope to be a place where the beauty, love, presence, power, and the unity of God are tangibly evident.
We have a mix of gifted musicians / artists/ readers from Sussex and it’s local Kingswood University, with the hope of strong energy and a prayerful spirit that proclaim God’s truth through song and the arts.
We hold on to our traditions in a modern way through our communion, giving through offering, and baptism!
In our services, we welcome a variety postures, as deemed appropriate in approaching the Lord’s presence. We recognize postures of praise and thanksgiving, of blessing and confession, as well as sorrow and grief, petition and lament.
Prayer remains an integral part of all aspects of our worship. We are hearing from and responding to God.
READING THE WORD
Reading the Word during our worship services is a way in which keep His Word always before us, as we are called to called to meditate on His Word day and night (Psalm 1:2), and to worship in Spirit and in truth (John 4:24).
