"NEW" A night of worship led by Resound Worship, whose unique album
'Doxecology' focuses on creation, ecology, climate crisis and Christian hope.
Monday 1st November, 7.30pm at Northgate Church, Chester CH1 4EF
Resound Worship are a songwriting collective, with writers drawn from
local churches throughout England. Northgate Church in Chester are delighted to
be hosting the team as they begin their UK tour of the new album, 'Doxecology'.
The Doxecology collection is the result of a two-year writing
process. It began as a response to the growing climate crisis and the
recognition of a disconnect between these real concerns and the language and
content of our songs in church. How do we sing about what's going on in the
world around us in a worship context?
Joel and the team will explain their heart behind this unique collection of
songs, and lead us in worship as we sing them.
This tour is in partnership with A Rocha UK 'Caring
for God's Earth', and coincides with the UN 'COP26' Climate
Change Summit in Glasgow.
Tickets are free (but please register through Eventbrite via the link below) a
retiring collection will be held if you would like to contribute towards the
cost of hosting the event.
