By God’s grace, worship songs such as Shout To The Lord, Mighty To Save, Hosanna, Cornerstone, Forever Reign, Broken Vessels, This I Believe (The Creed) and What A Beautiful Name have become the songs of local churches all over the globe in addition to finding a place in the personal devotional life of individual believers everywhere.

Hillsong Worship is passionate about equipping and mobilising believers around the world with Christ-centred songs of God-glorifying worship for the building of the Church.

Ben Cantelon

Saturday Morning Worship

Canadian Ben Cantelon has worked for several years with Worship Central and Holy Trinity in London. He’s a respected worship leader and songwriter within the UK and well beyond. Most of his time is spent sharing his gift of music around the world.

Set against the backdrop of global uncertainty he sees everywhere he goes, Ben’s music, including Happy Day, The Way, Simple Pursuit, He Lives and Set Apart and the songs on his latest solo album, The Ascent, Vol. 1, are reminders that “God is bigger than any of us, far brighter than any of our gloom and far more real than any of our denial.” Ben will be leading worship on Saturday morning and teaching classes at Break Forth One.

Family Force 5

Saturday Evening // 9:00 PM // $24.99-$29.99

For this Christian Nashville-based band, each live show is the party of a lifetime: a supremely wild and sweaty free-for-all that’s nothing short of transcendent. With their boundary-blurring and infectious breed of pop music, FF5 carefully dreams up each stage production to deliver a live experience like no other.

Within this joyful chaos, FF5 ultimately fulfill a greater mission: honouring God while creating an undeniable sense of abandon in fans hungry for pure fun and spontaneity. “A lot of times, people take themselves and the things going on in their lives too seriously,” says Jacob (vocals). “We want to give them a little break from real life, to help them let go and really enjoy themselves so that all of us can experience this crazy dance party together.”
