Earlier this summer we released the first WorshipRises (fb|tw) EP which was four songs written by Canadian worship leaders as a way of sharing with the global church what God is doing in Canada. We have been running songwriting events across the country and hearing some great songs come from the events and the co-writing relationships being formed from them.
One of the really exciting things is seeing how local churches are taking WorshipRises songs and incorporating them as part of their own worship repertoire. Central Community Church in St. Catharines, ON did just that with one of the songs on the EP which was co-written by their worship director, Greg Sykes. Central recorded a live worship album this year and we are very excited to now release their version of “Maker of my Heart” as a WorshipRises digital single.
I would personally be honoured if you’d give up 99 cents of your music-buying budget to help support what is happening with WorshipRises. We have some exciting things on the horizon and it is incredible to watch the continued growth of what God is doing with this bunch of Canadian worship leaders.
