“Lord I think of Your love
Like the low winter sun
And as I gaze I am blinded
In the light of Your brightness”

Stood in the light of His brightness, we come together in worship and celebrate the Lord’s love. Just like the Sequoia is the greatest of trees, Jesus’ sacrifice for you and I on the cross at Calvary is the greatest of gifts.

Instrumental Expression

In a year of uncertainty, change, restrictions, unfamiliar patterns, loss (I could go on with more negative words) etc. it is interesting what happens. So often this sort of pressure becomes the olive press that squeezes the best out of us. We find fresh expression under the weight and stress and exchange beauty for ashes. Stephen has experienced this in laying down several electronic instrumental tracks during 2020 to help him express the year. Let me encourage you to have a listen and enjoy them here!!

Be Enthroned

“We’ve come to join the song
Sung long before our lives
To raise our voice along
Heaven and earth alike”

The Festival Church worship team have been busy recording this incredible version of Bethel Music’s Be Enthroned. Take a moment out of your day to join the song sung long before our lives.

Spoken from the Heart

 I wrote this some years ago and always have it with me in my Bible.


Spoken from the Heart


I often say I find it hard to hear you speak to me

To know your voice, to know your will, to know the way to be

I sometimes sit and listen and hope to hear from you

But my mind constantly wanders to the things I have to do


I talk to you throughout the day as I go about my tasks

But I never hear that “heavenly voice” that answers when I ask

People say “God spoke you know” and it always puzzles me

My life is oh so silent – the only voice is me


Then I look back and I see my life, the way you’ve led me through

The things I’ve done, the way they’ve worked, it must be down to you

The miracle of healing, my husband and my home

The work you’ve given us to do to bring the lost back home


And as I read the Bible, your words stand clear apart

“I will put my laws into their minds and write them on their hearts

So I know I can move forward, in your love there is no fear

You’re teaching me and leading me in your way, year after year


I realise now, you live in me and so direct my thoughts

Decisions that I make are by the Holy Spirit brought

As I lay my life before you and let you have your way

I don’t need to hear a voice out loud for you to have your say


So in future I won’t say to folk that I find it hard to hear

I’ll explain how you have better ways to take away our fear

How you fill us with your Holy Ghost, so we can always know

That you will keep us on your path and guard the way we go
