New Song: Build My Life

Every September we return to three defining characteristics of Cornerstone Church: Gospel Centred, Marked by Grace and On Mission. More than words these realities shape us gathered, equally as much when we scatter returning to work, school, home, university, friends, and family. Gospel Centred, Marked By Grace and On Mission become the overflow for each believer whose f...

'A rejoicing heart soon makes a praising tongue.' Spurgeon What causes a heart to rejoice? For the Christ follower there are infinite reasons that could move our hearts to rejoicing and our mouths to praise.

'How long will it be before we discover we cannot dazzle God with our accomplishments? When will we acknowledge that we need not and cannot buy God's favour?' Brennan Manning Paul's sermon this past Sunday reminded me of this quote. We are those that have first received - nothing to earn, nothing to prove, it is all grace, all a gift of God (1 Cor 4:7).

Greater than our thoughts, greater than our feelings, greater than our circumstances Christ has made peace by the blood of His cross (Col 1:20). There is a greater reality at work in the live...

New Song: Great Are You Lord

'Great Are You Lord' is a song that you've probably heard on in the background before or after a service at Cornerstone Church. It's a simple song that helps communicate a profound Scriptural truth - that everything we have is from God. The first verse paints a picture of who God is and what He's done: You give life,(Acts 17:25) You are love (1 John 4:8) ...

New Song: The Lord Our God

As we move into a new stage of life as a church it is important to remind ourselves of the fact that although our lives and circumstances will be constantly in flux, God is 'ever faithful' and 'never changing'. 'The Lord Our God' is a song that is all about God's faithfulness, protection and provision for his people and has many echoes to God's leading of Israel through th...
