WORSHIP AT WERB’S
At Werb's we understand that worship is primarily a lifestyle of passion, obedience and devotion to God made possible by the empowering of His Holy Spirit. We also understand that music is a precious gift that helps us connect with our emotions and feelings as we seek to express our love of Jesus Christ. It is our huge hope and prayer that the music and production in our services and events will be far more than just an emotive experience and will in fact be a vessel for drawing people closer to God.
We expect to encounter God’s love and presence when we gather to worship Him and we will always aim to give space and freedom to His creative and life-giving Spirit. We know that as we encounter God in our worship and enjoy honest and intimate relationship with Him, our communities and places of work outside of the church will be transformed because we too have been transformed by God's heart ministering to ours.

Thought For The Day
Worship changes your perspective – it focuses back to God and even in your circumstance you are able to get through it because you are completely surrounded by Him, you are surrendering your circumstance or situation to Him and giving Him control.
But, actually, sometimes we are angry, frustrated, lost, scared and the last thing we want to do is to sing. Maybe you’re angry or annoyed at God for not just getting rid of what you are going through… But actually God is close, He’s in your heart and He longs for relationship with you. He longs to hold you through the pain and hurting and confusion because it is NOT of Him.
The darkness that you may be experiencing is the enemy trying to drag you down, using your own thoughts against you. But we have to remember just how close God is. You can fight your battles with the power of praise.
In the book ‘When God Becomes Real’ written by Brian Johnson he says: “something significant happens when we choose to praise in the moments of our greatest struggle and pain.”
And I think that just sums it all up..
All the nations you have made
will come and worship before you, Lord;
they will bring glory to your name.
For you are great and do marvelous deeds;
you alone are God.
- Psalm 86:9-10
