I've been following the Spotify iPhone application submission with interest and on August 28th Spotify announced that Apple have now approved their application. It will be very interesting to see how this changes purchase behaviour and if people prefer to pay a one off monthly fee to access as much music as they want.
To see what the iPhone app will look like you can watch the video… Continue
We've decided to make the job listings on Worship The Rock free to post for the foreseeable future.
As the job board is a new feature we're experimenting with different ideas and think this is a good way to go...at least for now.
So please do go ahead and post any worship pastor / worship leader job openings in your church or that you're aware. Also, please spread the word to your church office that it's free to post worship jobs on Worship The Rock!
I recently read a fantastic book by Bill Johnson called "Strengthen Yourself in the Lord". As I often do, I enjoyed the book so much that I raced through it only to realise I couldn't remember many of the lessons I thought i'd learnt along the way!
I'm therefore re-reading the book and summarising the key points from each chapter. I thought this would make for an interesting blog so hopefully some of you will find my notes helpful too.
Over the last few months when struggling with various things going on in my life one song has kept helping me through difficult times. It's called 'Made me Glad' and it's by Hillsong. The lyrics (and melody if you know it) are so uplifting and faith building i'm sure you'll agree:
I will bless the Lord forever
I will trust Him at all times
He has delivered me from all fear
He has set my feet upon a rock
I will not be moved
And I'll say of the… Continue
We're going to be trying out different colours and themes on WTR over the next week or so. Please bear with us as the site will look different to normal and may change several times while you're browsing around on it!
I've just recently come across this amazing piece of software called Spotify. It's similar to iTunes in design but basically allows users to stream songs for free, as long as they don't mind putting up with an advert every 20 minutes or so. The advert is similar to standard radio ads in nature and length. You can choose to pay to use it and you don't have any ads then - it's £10/month in the UK.
According to Wikipedia it's not available in the US yet but is available in the UK and… Continue
I sent this out to all members but it seems that as it had the word 'Free' and other similar words it may have been blocked in people's spam filters. If you didn't receive the message here it is again.
Good news - we have teamed up with Power Music to bring Worship The Rock members a fantastic offer.
Using the following link (which will only be available until 31st March 09 midnight GMT) you can purchase Power Music and get the accompanying foot pedal absolutely… Continue

Chat will continue to be available on every page of Worship The Rock. Chat is now… Continue
I'm currently reading through "The Supernatural Power of a Transformed Mind" by Bill Johnson. This is a fantastic book. It's so exciting to read about some things that i've believed for a long time but don't often hear people teach or preach about.
Often we limit God by our small thinking. Every now and then we see or hear something that stirs us up and reminds us of what the Christian life should be about. How we should be living. The things we should be believing for and seeing… Continue
Since 'Worship The Rock' launched back in April 2008 we've spotted a few well known worship leaders and Christian musicians on here. I've noticed the following people you may have heard of:
(Ex-Hillsong pianist and songwriter, known for writing songs like: "And That My Soul Knows Very Well"; "Friends in High Places"; "God Is in the House"; "I Believe the Promise"; "Love You So… Continue
The WTR admin team and I are going to start trying to blog a bit more regularly and i've got a great testimony to share with you in this one!
I watched this healing testimony about 5 years ago and they've updated the video to show more detail and more about her life since. I don't want to give too much away but this testimony is so powerful and so well documented. I watched it again last night and it just reminds me how awesome and… Continue
