Renowned worship leader to visit Sheringham church
2018: Singer/Songwriter and worship leader Lou Fellingham will be performing at Lighthouse Community Church in Sheringham on Sunday October 7. Tony Rothe reports.
Lou is a songwriter and worship leader who has been an ever-present force in the music industry for the last 20 years. An internationally known worship leader, five albums in to a firmly-established ministry, she is known for her prophetic edge, distinctive voice, unwavering energy to see lives changed through the power of music and word.
Her website says “With a heart that longs for people to know God and his outrageous love, Lou is tireless in her pursuit to write and record powerful songs and to lead people in singing truth that lifts their heads and stirs their hearts. Her critically acclaimed albums are packed with inspiring melodies wrapped around God exalting lyrics to remind us of who He is and who He has made us to be. Embodying authenticity, spiritual integrity and communicating the power of the gospel has always been the anchor of her music, underpinning and emphasizing her musical gifting.”
Lou Fellingham, right, said “Ultimately we want the music we write to draw people to God. That by the power and presence of His Spirit people would have revelation of all that Jesus has done for us. That we can be restored to the Father. Worship is His gift to us. We’re made to worship our creator and He is worthy no matter what, but we find that as we give, we also receive.”
Lighthouse will also be welcoming Yemi Adedeji, right, as speaker on Sunday September 2. Yemi is currently consulting as Director of “One People Commission” at Evangelical Alliance UK, Associate Director for Hope Together UK, Global Ambassador for Compassion UK and Strategic Adviser for leaders in Ministry, across the United Kingdom. Yemi is ordained as an Anglican Priest and a Pentecostal Pastor. Married to Simi a lawyer and a magistrate with 4 daughters.
The visits are part of the church’s Stir 18 programme of inspiring evenings on selected Sundays this summer and autumn, which has already included a worship evening in June featuring Steve Campbell from C3 church in Cambridge, and award-winning comedy magician John Archer in July.
These evangelistic evenings are designed to have a broad appeal and are open to everyone in the community as well as encouraging and inspiring Christians from churches in North Norfolk and across the county.
The evenings will start with coffee at 6.30pm, with the main event at 7pm, and admission is free.
Ian Savory, senior pastor at Lighthouse Community Church, said “With these Stir 18 events, we will be hearing other Christians tell their story and sharing their perspective on what God is doing in our day and in their area of influence, as well as enjoying some excellent entertainment. We are asking God to build faith among us for what He can do in North Norfolk and beyond.”
