The Climb Worship

When our dear leader (Faith) comes to me with new ideas for videos, nine times out of ten I respond positively. When she said ‘We’re going to climb to the top of Pen-y-Fan’ (the highest mountain peak in South Wales), well my response was definitely within the nine, but still with a little trepidation. My own wife, who loves walking, had not yet succeeded in getting me to the top of Pen-y-Fan after many years of trying. So it really was an accomplishment for me to give a resoundingly positive ‘Hmmmm ok’......

To Honour

To Honour

I’ve always believed in the importance of honouring your elders. It’s built right in there at number 5 of the ten commandments after all! But in addition to that I believe it’s important to honour those mentors in our lives who teach and equip us to ‘do life’ more generally speaking. Those people whose influence on us lasts far longer than the time actually spent together. For me, one such person is Tim Finch. You may recognise the name if you have seen our recent video ‘Real Stories – Passion Through The......

blog five tips for worship

Five tips for understanding worship

Worship doesn’t have a genre. The worship team playing your favourite song doesn’t mean you’re more able to worship. That’s shallow worship because it’s doing more for you than God. Worshipping God regardless of the music and surroundings is a good indicator of your boundaries of worship. Be boundless! Know why we worship. The key to this is in the bible, look up the Tabernacle as the pattern for worship is there. It has been said that when the pattern is right the glory will fall. Have we got the pattern of......

When God Calls

When God Calls

I’d like to share with you all briefly how God called me into working at The Worship Effect, it’s a story of God fulfilling the desires of your heart, and then some! I have been established as a self-employed freelance videographer since 2010 and working in video for much longer than that. I have worked with many clients over the years on a wide range of video genres and I can honestly say I love what I do. But I look back and recognise the standout projects for me, for my heart,......

Choices choices

Choices choices

What happens next to you will be dictated by the choices you make now! Not fate, choice! This is not an agreeable concept for the majority of people because we as humans hate taking responsibility for the rubbish that happens. So this blog comes with a warning….if you get offended easily then please stop here! However, i recommend being offended sometimes…..it keeps us humble. I often hear people say that once they become a christian and give their life to God that he would now dictate what happened next….from long term into......

Living to give or living to gain?

Living to give or living to gain?

This weekend i’ve been inspired. Changed. I don’t think i’ll ever be the same. Some months ago I organised for preacher Ray Hughes to come to our church to speak and to film with TWE. I knew this would be amazing and we would hear some fantastic stuff filled with revelation and truth, I couldn’t wait for people to hear it. Little did i know the impact it would have on me. Most of the time in most churches I see people who live to gain. They do give, they help, they......

The humility pill!

The humility pill!

Life has a way of dishing you out a humility pill now and again. When everything is going amazing, you’re finding yourself in situations you never dreamt you’d be in….life is just peachy and then you start losing track of the core things that are important in life because you’re too distracted with stuff….meaningless stuff! Well let me tell you of the dose of humility i recieved today. I woke up after an amazing FULL nights sleep (yes its totes rare and soooo appreciated when it happens….this was my time!). The kids......

Favoured! Get over it!

Favoured! Get over it!

We are taught from a young age in school and especially in churches that we are all equal. While a potion of this is true the reality of it is we are not. See we all have something in common…..we are all human…..beautifully made……wonderfully diverse within the realms of humanity whether it be the colour of your skin or ethinicity…..the basic line of humanity between us ALL is equal. God made us ALL in his image…..He loves us ALL with everything he is….He has given ALL a choice between believing, loving and......

Fighting for something that's not for you?

Everybody iss fighting for something. Some people are visibly going through situations and fighting for better, other are silently fighting. But either way, everyone has a fight in them. There are two types of fighters though….those who are fighting for things which simply are not working for them or not for them and those who are fighting to stay focused on what God has in store for them. You see one will always think theres better than their current situation, they will never be contented in what they have in life, they......
