Here are the chord sheets for the Found in You songs.
For anyone passing by on Saturday night, the sound of music emanating from Coffee Box would hardly have done justice to the atmosphere of almost 200 people worshipping together at the launch of our long-awaited debut album, Found in You.
The album is the culmination of 18 months of collaboration between talented musicians, technicians and producers from within the church. The finished product was launched at the weekend with an evening celebrating what God has done for us, particularly over the last few months, but also over the years that King's has been established, with our 40th birthday and a visit from New Ground leader Dave Holden on the same weekend.
We had visitors from all over staying with us for the exciting series of events, including some friends from the Impacters’ first week of training, and even friends from Bulgaria, who said they felt very welcome and loved the atmosphere here at King’s.
The worship team led us in a set of well-known favourites interspersed with tracks from the album, so that those both familiar and new could be involved with a time of deep intimacy with God. From the upbeat 'Mercies New' to the nuanced key-changes of 'Refine', the musical anointing over these songs was evident to all throughout the evening.
The origin of the title track, 'Found in You', was explored in a video-prelude to the second half of the evening, after a break at the bar, not to mention the rush to buy one of the newly-arrived CDs.
Aled Cousins, who heads up the worship team, said: “The evening went really well. It wasn't planned as a performance; instead we had the opportunity to come before a holy and faithful God, and just give him everything.”
Before the launch, Simon Brading, who leads worship at the youth event Newday and at CCK Brighton, described the album as featuring “songs of depth, honesty and intimacy set to beautiful melodies and stunning vocals”. He added: “This album has been fresh air to my soul and helped me to enjoy Christ all the more.”
If you missed out on Saturday night, don't worry! CDs are on sale from the church office during the week and Resources on Sundays now, so make sure you come and get yours, and experience God's presence powerfully and intimately as you worship along.
“Songs of depth, honesty and intimacy set to beautiful melodies and stunning vocals...”Simon Brading
"Songs of depth, honesty and intimacy set to beautiful melodies and stunning vocals," is how Simon Brading, who heads up worship at Newday and CCK, described songs from the King's Church Hastings debut album!
Simon listened to a sneak preview of the tracks, all written by members of the King's Church Hastings worship team, and added: "This album has been fresh air to my soul and helped me enjoy Christ all the more."
“These songs draw you back to your heart relationship with God...”Dave Holden
Dave Holden, who heads up the New Ground family of churches, listened to a selection of songs from the upcoming King's Church Hastings and said: "These songs draw you back to your heart relationship with God – they are wonderful intimate songs that will cause you to worship. I highly recommend it!"
“These songs have helped me in my own worship time...”Dan Sparks
"It's been brilliant to work with this great team of worshippers on developing songs that bring glory to God," said Dan Sparks, a drummer on the King's Church Hastings album.
He added: "It's been a privilege to be involved in writing and working on songs for Jesus. These songs have helped me in my own worship time, and I hope that many others will meet with God through them too."
Dan also plays tambourine on the album and, if you listen carefully, you can hear him clapping too!
“It was so much fun to take some of our own songs into the studio for the first time...”Caner Mutu
Caner Mutu is the lead vocalist on some of the tracks on the King's Church Hastings debut album. He was also part of the song-writing team.
Caner said: "It was so much fun to take some of our own songs into the studio for the first time. I didn't realise how much work would go into getting every song ready for the album.
"There's something really exciting about being part of this album: it's really encouraged and inspired us as a worship team to think outside of the box."
Rumour has it that we may be releasing our first album soon… WATCH THIS SPACE!
(We wouldn't usually encourage you to listen to rumours and gossip, but we have this one on good authority!)
