An introduction by Phil Varley, one of our Pastors.

August 2020

We Praise You

"We Praise You' is a simple song of worship for Jesus' goodness and grace, celebrating the freedom and abundant life He won for us at the cross. Pretty much everything in life will come and go, but Jesus' love for us remains constant. I believe we can get great joy, great hope and great peace when we remind ourselves that He is faithful and He is mighty to save. And what's even better, if we've said sorry for the things we've done wrong and declare that Jesus is the son of God, we can actually experience Jesus' saving power and faithful love in our lives! Hallelujah! 'Jesus we worship your name!"

Finding God in the Waiting – Poem

“I started writing this quite early in the lockdown when I was struggling with some of the restrictions. The second verse took longer to form and reflects the change from looking at the circumstances to looking for what God is doing and saying.”

Hold My Gaze

I wrote most of this song following a friend’s funeral a couple of years ago and finished the chorus during lockdown. It speaks of our hope in Jesus and asks God to help us fix our eyes on that hope, to help us to walk through the challenges of this life.

Spirit Come – Sarah Téibo

I was studying the book of Acts chapters 1 & 2 one evening in February and felt a strong urge to pray for God’s Spirit to fall afresh on us, as He did in days of the apostles. That’s how the song Spirit come came about. It’s such a timely song as well, because it is our heartfelt prayer in this season to see God bring peace and healing to our land and indeed our world.

Blessed – Sarah Téibo

Blessed was written at a time when I was mourning the loss of my mother a few years ago. In the midst of my grief I was still able to recognise God’s many blessings in my life. I pray that in these unprecedented times, we would all remember God’s goodness and see that we have so many reasons to bless His holy name.

“Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.” – Psalms‬ ‭103:2‬ ‭NLT

Way Maker Cover

One of the many things I've loved about growing up and living in South London is the exposure you get to so many different, rich cultures and heritages. Reggae and Ska made up quite a chunk of the soundtrack to my teenage years (I was even in a Ska band called the Skamadillos!). As such, when I'm leading worship one of my favourite things to do is take an established song and give it a little twist. I love Sinach's "Waymaker", hopefully you enjoy my Reggaeton version.

He is Alive

This song was written Neal Glanville and Simon Brading and was used by some of our worship team at Newday.

Hurricanes

The lyrics of 'Hurricanes' are almost entirely highlights of my favourite Psalms; the first verse has lines from Psalms 23 and 139; the chorus is a combination of Psalms 18 and 91; verse 2 has images of Psalm 57, and there are probably others in there I've forgotten about! I wrote this song in the midst of some personal "Hurricanes" in my life, and the song is about taking comfort in the truths that God is faithful and that 'Storms will roll in, but come the morning, I'll be safe beneath Your wings'.

Jesus You Are

This song was written a few years ago by Charlene Jones & Neal Glanville as part of our 'Boundless EP'. Some of our worship team then had the opportunity to lead thousands of young people in worship with it at Newday.

What a Beautiful Name

I did this piece while listening to What A Beautiful Name by Hillsong, and was reflecting on what it means for the name of Jesus to be beautiful, wonderful, powerful.
In this piece I explore God’s majesty, His creation, His sovereignty, His love. I hope it will encourage you to worship Him – maybe creatively in a way you haven’t before – but ultimately to remember that the name of Jesus is beautiful, wonderful, powerful.

Whispers in the Wilderness

We wrote this song last week. It’s about reminding yourself that even when life is busy, difficult, chaotic or pressured, you can retreat, still your heart and listen to God. Even in intense suffering, we can have confidence that God’s purposes will be fulfilled and that He is with us.

You Say So

I wrote ‘You Say So’ at the start of lockdown, amid a few personal disappointments that had hit me around the same time. I wanted to defiantly proclaim God’s sovereignty over every situation. I think the truths in the song are probably quite applicable for today:

There is healing because you say so
We can trust in Jesus name
We don’t have to be afraid, no
We believe it because you say so

You can also find the song on Spotify and other platforms under the artist name ‘Joyful Soundz’.

‘Promises’ Cover

‘Promises’ is a song from Maverick City that was shared in our worship team WhatsApp group and has brought us courage and strength in these recent challenging times. With the combined voices of many of the Lee worship team, we hope it may do the same for you, wherever you’re at. You can listen to the original song here.

Wednesday Worship Rap

For me, rap/poetry/spoken word is a great medium to express Biblical truth. I see examples of this in the Psalms, from which I get a lot of inspiration. This piece is a reflection on living a life of worship, remembering that worship goes beyond the songs we sing.

The Worshipper

This piece was painted a few years ago at a worship event. I was inspired when watching a lady worship with such freedom. I wanted to capture the connection she had with God in that moment. Revelation 4:3 describes a rainbow that encircles the throne of God. The splendour and the beauty of the throne is just a small glimpse of the beauty and splendour of the God that we serve. I imagined her as she worshipped the Father before His throne in the hopes that, at last, she will see His face.

Lord Uphold Me

This song speaks of God aligning our hearts with His will during our times of worship. The song also speaks of the Holy Spirit strengthening, sustaining, and influencing our lives, as we come to Christ for healing.

Psalm 130 – Weep, Worship, Wait, Witness

I created this piece in response to Andrew’s sermon a few weeks ago. The message has stayed with me over the last few weeks and I felt I wanted to respond to it, and in some way document my feelings, and to highlight the four words – weep, worship, wait and witness.

Draw Closer

Closeness and relationship with God is something we not only long for but are designed for, and so I wrote this song as an encouragement to myself and others to seek a deeper relationship with Him.

Rulers Keep Their Splendour

I came up with the theme for this song during a worship time when I was struck by the idea that God's splendour is not something that holds us away, but it draws us in.

Be Still

I choreographed this dance piece to a song written by a good friend of mine, Serena Dalton. It speaks of how God is our peace within the storm and how he calms our fears and anxieties, 'Be Still'.

There's no fear in love

I painted this a couple of years ago, during a very difficult, dark season characterised by deep fear and anxiety. I had found that, if a sense of panic began to build up in me, then painting something really helped to take my mind away from itself and to focus on the colours blending in front of me. And this painting happened on one such occasion.
