"We need to move back to being Spirit led."
Spirit Break Out, the debut live album from the London-based Worship Central team, is due for worldwide release on 12th September. And for a movement dedicated to helping unleash praise and worship within local churches across the world, Spirit Break Out is a live album full of energy and experience.
But this is no empty title. Spirit Break Out is the perfect summation of a profoundly held belief that we need to allow God more freedom and power within our worship.
Tim Hughes - songwriter, worship leader, co-founder of Worship Central and vicar-in-training - puts it clearly in a forthcoming interview with Mission Worship magazine:
"We've never had better quality songs to choose from. There are amazing songs on amazing themes coming out of Hillsong, Passion, Soul Survivor and - I guess - Worship Central too. But there's a danger here: that we rely on those songs to create the amazing encounters in worship. If we let the song become the king, then worship becomes more about what we can create and less about our response to God's initiating love and glory.
"We always need to be looking to be Spirit led in our worship. The Spirit gives life, releases freedom and joy, puts a new song on our lips and reveals the beauty and majesty of Christ."
The message is well-explored through the album, which features Tim Hughes, Ben Cantelon, Al Gordon, Nikki Fletcher and Luke Hellebronth. The team combined forces to lead at the HMV Forum in March 2011, and the album's 14 tracks draw out the very best of the evening's worship. Established songs like Tim Hughes' "Counting On Your Name" and "Wake Up" as well as Ben Cantelon"s "Saviour Of The World" are found on the album, along with a great selection of new ones.
