WorshipGod UK 2015 was held in Bath from Thursday 7th to Saturday 9th May 2015.  People from 15 different nations and over 135 different church came together to devote three days to the theology, practice, and joy of God-honoring worship.

Our 2015 conference focused on discovering what it means to build our meetings around the gospel. Every meeting tells a story, and the story we’re supposed to be telling is clear: the story of the crucified and risen Savior, Jesus Christ.

Mike Reeves (Director of Union) spoke the first night on Gathering to Behold from 2 Corinthians 3:1-4:6.

During the service this last Sunday, as we were singing and worshipping, Angi Sussex sang a prophetic song she sensed God wanted to use to minister specific encouragement to those in the congregation struggling with comprehending God’s love for them.

Here’s the lyrics from the song, and a rough recording. May it serve and encourage you all!

My love for you will never change,
In every circumstance,
My love remains the same.
In every high and stormy gale,
My love will hold you fast,
It will never fail.

For my love goes on and on;
My love is sure and strong.

There’s nothing you could do or say,
That could cause me to take my love away.
Your darkest deeds and your deepest shame,
Are not to great, for my love covers every stain.

See my love displayed,
In the cross and my son that I gave.
My love has reached you when you were astray;
I planned your rescue before you were made.

Yes, my love brings you freedom, mercy and grace;
My love sustains you, and holds you every day.
And now in heaven, I’m preparing you a place
You see, my love for you can never change;
No, my love for you can never change.


Prophectic Song on the Love of God by Grace Church

Jan 26

During the service this last Sunday, as we were singing and worshipping, Angi Sussex sang a song she sensed God wanted to use to minister specific encouragement to those in the congregation struggling with anxiety and fear over the future.

Here’s the lyrics from the song, and a rough recording. May it serve and encourage you all!


Today you may be hurting,
In pain or suffering.
Today you may feel God is far away from you.
Today you may be anxious,
Afraid for tomorrow.
Today you may feel temptations lead you astray

But we have a hope of a greater day coming;
A day when our Saviour will make all things new.

So don’t be disheartened,
If you feel that the days ahead
Look too hard for you;
Because of a day when Jesus gave everything,
We can be confident He’ll carry us through.

So we’ll trust in Your promises,
Hold on to Your faithfulness.
Holding on to the hope of that glorious day;
For we know You are coming,
For those You have loved;
And we trust You that You would carry us through,
Everyday.


Prophectic Song (22 01 2012)

Sep 26

During the service on Sunday (25/09/11), as we were rejoicing in the grace and goodness of God, Angi Sussex sensed that God wanted to minister through prophetic song specifically to these who were struggling with doubt, and questioning the goodness of God, because of particular situations in their lives at present.  Here’s the lyrics from the song. May they serve and encourage all who read them!


Sunday 25th September 2011
Prophetic Song for those Struggling with Doubt.

I hear your cry, I see your tears in the night
You are weak and you wonder why
You feel alone but I am with you

So let my grace, let my grace be enough
Find your strength in me the solid rock
for my power never ends

For I am the God who draws near unto
Those who call on me
I welcome you to my throne of grace
To find help in times of need

I hear your cry, my promised good you cannot see
Your situation’s not what you want it to be
But it’s my design and sovereignty

So let my peace, let my peace bring calm to your soul
In stormy trials I won’t let you go
Rest in the shadow of my wings

For I’m the God who heals the brokenhearted
I stoop down to seek the lost
I’ve shown my love and compassion for you
In the mercy of the cross
I’m the father to the fatherless
The defender of the weak
Always watching over you
Put your trust in me

So lift you eyes to me your Coming King
Lift your heart and voice to sing
Hope in my love that’s unfailing
I’m the sustainer of everything
I’m your God, trust in me
