THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG
Recorded at Trinity Church, Cheltenham (UK) earlier this year, ‘Shelter’ is the first live recording from Homegrown Worship’s new flagship playlist, Live Worship Wednesday, and has been aired by TBN UK, GodTV, Supernatural Online TV - with a large South African and American audience - and featured on Worship Fuel by CCLI, a global resource for churches.
Featuring South African born artist and worship leader Loulita Gill, ‘Shelter’ is both tender and powerful, gradually building to a crescendo mid-section with big drums, lofty guitars and the cry of a room full of worshippers representing over 30 different churches from across the UK.
‘As the song drew to what felt like a natural conclusion, there was one of those moments in corporate worship where the Spirit led us spontaneously to respond; people sang out as we went deeper with the LORD in gathered worship' says Nick Law, Chief Song Selector for Homegrown Worship.
'We can't wait to share with our audience the songs filmed at the event, which we feel really captures the heartbeat behind Homegrown Worship'.
Inspired by Psalm 91, 'Shelter is a song about knowing the safety of God’s love' says Andy Baker, the songwriter. 'When the world gets me down and I’m not up to the task, God whispers to me that He is in control and in my weakness He will show Himself to be strong'.
‘Shelter’ is released on all digital streaming platforms on Wednesday 2nd October 2019 and is available to view now on the Homegrown Worship YouTube channel.
