My hands are searching for You
My arms are outstretched towards You
I feel You on my fingertips
My tongue dances behind
my lips for You

This fire rising through my being
Burning, I’m not used to seeing You

I’m alive, I’m alive

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling
Savoring this heart that’s healing

My hands float up above me
And You whisper You love me
And I begin to fade
Into our secret place

The music makes me sway
The angels singing say we
are alone with You
I am alone and they are too with You

I’m alive, I’m alive

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling
Savoring this heart that’s healing

And so I cry
The light is white
And I see You

I’m alive, I’m alive, I’m alive

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling
Savoring this heart that’s healing

Take my hand, I give it to you
Now you own me, all I am
You said You would never leave me
I believe You, I believe

I can feel you all around me
Thickening the air I’m breathing
Holding on to what I’m feeling
Savoring this heart that’s healing

This post is part of a weekly worship blog carnival, so do stop by the worship community for more setlists and sermon recaps from around the world…


All of my days (Hillsong)
Great is the Lord God Almighty (Reuben Morgan)
Enter this temple (Leeland)
Lord you have my heart (Martin Smith)
Eagle’s wings (Reuben Morgan)

Brett preached this morning on relationships…specifically on love with a special focus on marriages. Verses used: Matthew 22: 34 – 40; Luke 15: 11- 32; 1 Corinthians 13; Ephesians 5: 22 – 33; John 13: 1 – 5; Luke 23: 33 – 34; Matthew 18: 21 – 35; John 4: 20 – 21.

Come and listen (David Crowder* Band)
Lord you are worthy (Brad Klynsmith)
How great is our God (Brad Klysmith)
How great is your faithfulness (Matt Redman)
Hallelujah (your love makes me sing) (Brian Doerkson/Brenton Brown)
Revelation Song (Kari Jobe)

Kevin led today and I really enjoyed the worship today. Didn’t have drums so it was accoustic, but vibey accoustic which was really cool. Kev was on guitar, Ross on djembe, and then kev and I vocals. I learned 3 of the 6 songs an hour before the service started…but it went really well I think.

Brett preached tonight as well. This time on our identity in Christ.Verses: Exodus 1: 8 – 22 and 2: 1 – 15 (who Moses was overruled the expectations of his context in society – who we are in Christ overrules the expectations of society – we are no longer bound to sin); Ruth 1: 1 – 18 (Ruth intentionally takes on the context of her society – we have to choose to turn our backs on sin); Luke 15: 11 – 32 (the son intentionally renounces the context of his society – even though we keep turning back to the worlds way, we have to choose to keep returning to the father). If you don’t know your identity in Christ, you won’t live in it: the authority, privileged, and responsibility that comes with the knowledge.

On Friday afternoon I got a call at work telling me that my mom was in hospital…she has been suffering from high blood pressure the last couple of months so that call caused me to spiral into a whirlwind of panic. I then left work early to go see her, but by the time I arrived in Cape Town she was already out of hospital and back home…so thankful to God for that. Anyway, ended up staying with her for the weekend, and she wasn’t really up to being up-and-about on Sunday morning so didn’t go to am service.


we had an awesome service last night, with Kevin and Joao (do check out his music cos he is seriously rocking for Christ!) co-leading and Pri also leading on vocals…it was the last official service of the year (the majority of our evening service members are college students and right now they are either writing exams or already on holidays) so we decided to end it with a bang…we had just over an hour of worship, followed by about 45 minutes of testimonies on what God has done in the past year…followed by lot sof thanksgiving and praise for the past year and a bit of looking forward to next year. Ended off the service with prayer for the members of the leadership team this year and the new members that will be joining next year.

Can’t really remember all the songs we did but here’s the ones I can remember:

O praise him (David Crowder Band)
Happy day (Tim Hughes)
Let me found at your table (Brad Klynsmith)
Mighty to save (Ben Fielding, Reuban Morgan)
Give us clean hands (Chris Tomlin)
Here is love (William Rees, Matt Redman version)
Above all (Paul Baloche)
Trading my sorrows (Darrell Evans)
King of majesty (Marty Sampson)
Blessed (Reuben Morgan)

I had a pretty hectic but good week last week so decided to spend Sunday morning at home by my lonesome to do some recovering…and by the end of the day was feeling very refreshed thanks in part to David Crowder Band…


Glory (Rueben Morgan)
Lord of lords (brooke fraser)
Desert song (brooke fraser)
Healer (Mike Guglielmucci)
Let your glory fall – chorus only (Matt Redman)

Ronel led tonight with Madeleine co-leading on vocals.

Tonight was a continuation of 2 weeks ago: Porn Again part 2. After the singing we broke into two groups, the guys group and the girls group…we sat around in a circle and first we went around saying things that the church doesn’t address that we feel they should – basically what are things that are never talked about in church that you think should be talked about. After that people started shared their stories…wow…it was hectic…I thought – especially for first time visitors – it would be weird, but people were eager to share stuff and they just opened up and they were loved on and prayed for and it was just so good. then after that we broke up into even smaller groups (like 3 or 4 in each group) and just prayed for each other.

Was truly an awesome service. God was present and God worked.

I’ve been on a break from the worship team for the last 4 weeks, felt like I needed to take time out to sort out some stuff and talk to God for a bit, and now I’m feeling all better and thinking I might return to the worship team. Anyway, hoping the stuff that needed resolving is resolved but if you would like to offer up some prayers on my behalf I would really appreciate it.

Didn’t go to the morning service…was visiting friends in Cape Town for the weekend and had to get back to Stellenbosch by 11:00 for the VisionK fundraising event so couldn’t go to church.


Wholly yours (David Crowder Band)
Mighty to save (Hillsong)
Amazing grace (my chains are gone) (John Newton/Chris Tomlin)
Give us clean hands (Charlie Hall)
Desert song (Brooke Fraser)
You alone are God (Hillsong)
Pure Bride (Leeland)

Kevin was leading tonight. We didn’t actually sing “Pure Bride”…just listened to it cos it went so well with the message (on a side note, Leeland’s “Love is on the move” is amazing!). The preach was entitled “Porn Again’ and it was about dealing/struggling with sexual sin. Amazing ministry time followed – testimonies, confession and prayer – and just an all around AWESOME service…

Week 4 of the “Sunday Setlists” blog carnival at FredMcKinnon.Com


Come , Now is the time to worship (Brian Doerkson)
O Praise Him (David Crowder)
Hosanna (Brooke Fraser)
Receive our adoration (Brenton Brown)
Bautiful One (Tim Hughes)

Wow, David Crowder again…hmmm…other than that loved the set this morning…especially “Receive Our Adoration”. Was the first time we were doing it.

As for youth, one of our guys was mugged on Friday, the week before on Thursday I was mugged, and on the Wednesday one of the guys from youth was stabbed during a mugging…so Brett decided it was a good time to talk about forgiveness. Was really cool…lots of chatting and discussing…and I really think the message got through.

Evening – enGAGE

Holy is the Lord (Chris Tomlin)
Your love is amazing (Brian Doerkson)
Beautiful One (Tim Hughes)
Everything (Tim Hughes)
I love your Presence (Darrel Clarke/Jessie Lane)

During practice on Thursday there was talk of doing “O Praise Him” and I wholeheartedly objected…apparently there are only 2 people who feel that song is being over-done…but we discovered it was because the two people also attend the morning service, which clearly is where the overplaying occurs…we ended up not doing the song.

Really enjoyed worship tonight…especially after practice went so bad on Thursday. It was Stephen’s second time leading and I think he did a great job tonight.

The preach was on the Fruit of the Spirit and how if we are followers of Christ our fruit (deeds, words, etc) should show it…they will know we are Christians by the love we have one for another vibe. If the Spirit is in-dwelling us, our character should be one of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control…and also as much as we are a new creation when we come to Christ, it’s still an everyday working out your salvation with fear and trembling and seeking more of the Spirit till kingdom come thing.

Week 3 of the “Sunday Setlists” blog carnival at FredMcKinnon.Com

Sing to the king (New Life Worship)
O Praise Him (David Crowder)
Beautiful Jesus (Kristian Stanfill/Ed Cash)
Above All Else (Vicky Beeching)
Lord I give you my heart (Darlene Zschech)

Wasn’t on the team leading worship this morning…but dude, seriously? How many times can we sing “O Praise Him”? I mean I love David Crowder* Band as much as the next guy but wow…Anyway…

Youth we talked about God’s love for us…which followed well on last week’s love/relationships talk…Brett took youth again this week.

Evening – enGAGE
King of Majesty (Marty Sampson)
Trading my sorrows (Darrel Evans)
bridge from a hillsong song that says “you are holy, you are holy, you are holy Lord”…not sure what song it is.
chorus of a song, don’t know by who, that says “yahweh, your name is holy”
Wholly Yours (David Crowder)
the chorus of “You alone are God” (Ben Fielding/Morgon Reuben)
God of this city (Chris Tomlin)

Kev was leading this week and he said he couldn’t decide on which songs to use…and he really liked all the choruses but didn’t want to do the whole song so we did 3 full songs and 3 choruses/bridges…it went very well…accoustic guitar, djembe drum, and violin, and then me and Kev on vocals.

The preach was on the trinity…still confused about that one to be honest…very small group tonight…think it might be because it’s long weekend and people went home or something. good evening though.
