New song: There is a love
Our latest song is There is a love by Joel Payne. It's a song that explores the many ways that we are impacted by God's love and responds in praise. And it ends by powerfully echoing that refrain from the Psalms which says God's love is better than life.

New Song: Jesus you have called us (I will follow)
Our latest song is Jesus you have called us, written by Joel Payne. It's a gentle and simple reflection on the call of Jesus to follow him and we think it's ideal for this early part of the year as so many of us make a new resolve in our commitment to Christ. It would also be a great response song to follow the teaching in your church service.
