One of the great strengths of Australian Christianity is its creativity. The most famous are of course Hillsong – who, to be fair, have provided some great music.
But there is a little known group called City Alight from St Pauls, Castlehill Anglican Church in North Sydney who have produced some stunning songs which are very suitable for congregational worship. None more so than my song of the moment. This is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard or sung.
We heard this following song sung more than any other – again its beautiful theological worship –
And this one was sung in Katoomba – and is a great Easter hymn.
Finally there is this beautiful hymn which is just made for congregations who can sing without instruments! We have used and love it in St Petes…
I don’t normally buy worship albums – but we could not come home without buying their album – Only a Holy God. Highly recommended. I hope that all four songs above (and perhaps others) become as much a part of the staple diet in the Free Church (and others) as the excellent Getty/Townsend material so many of us use – it really is that league.
