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 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
In the book To Know You More by Andy Park ((seriously recommend reading by the way)) he says: “To be really free in worship leading, I have to know that God is fond of me. How can I confidently worship and lead others if I’m not sure how he feels about me?”. Reading this seriously made me ask myself that question. Recently I have really found myself on a journey of learning and accepting God’s thoughts of me. In order to lead someone else into worship you must know how God cares for you and the fact that you are a child of God so that you can show other people Him in the right light. Jeremiah 29:11 says: “For I know the thoughts I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” - without knowing this in your heart it is extremely difficult to feel good enough to lead others, it gives you strength and confidence when you know what God really thinks of you. Andy Park also says: “Having a wrong understanding of God’s personality is a huge barrier to the freedom and delight of worship” Our identity begins and ends in Christ and we need to understand this in order to lead others to Him. Saint Augustine said: “God loves each of us as if there were only one of us” - I love this! Without knowing just how much God loves us all individually, we will not feel able to worship him freely, in joy and understanding. How can we put things into place that remind us each day that we are loved and cared for by God? What could you do today to remind yourself of how loved and wanted you are?
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
