At the risk of sounding self-indulgent, I have actually been listening to the recordings of Worship Sunday and watching some of the video clips of it. A lot. Like nearly every day this week.
One of the things that happens when you’re leading worship is that you often don’t get much of a chance to get carried away by the moment because you try to make sure the set flows well; you are listening out for how people are responding etc. In fact, during the first set of Worship Sunday, because we were trying something so different, I was actually so nervous that my left hand was shaking (no, I don’t think it’s one of those Pentecostal, Holy-Spirit-just-came-upon-you induced kind of shaking – it was purely nerves. So much so that I had to keep the mic in my right hand).
So it was just refreshing to listen to the recordings again and be ministered to as I listened to what took place on Sunday. And then to watch the video was something else! I was truly captured by the atmosphere of the first set, especially being able to hear the congregation’s voices rising up above the sound system.
For those of you who couldn’t be there, here are some video snippets from Worship Sunday, thanks to Shirley Seah!
This video shows the beginning of Set One as the auditorium was blacked out and a video started playing with various definitions of worship fading in and out before the cross was illuminated and we went into the first song “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”.
This next clip is of that moment just after the Set One finished and the chairperson, Ps Jon Quay came up. At that moment, a fresh wave of spontaneous singing swept over the congregation.
This final clip is of the song “In Christ Alone” led by Ps Yoy and the full band during Set Two. It was incredibly intense!
Hope you guys are as blessed watching these as I was!
