Worship Awake is a Christian worship movement aimed at awakening and stoking existing fires of worship in the hearts of every worshipper!
This initiative started when Christelle (Stella) Combrink, a small-town farmer girl felt stirred to encourage worshippers from across South Africa to link arms to cover South Africa in a blanket of worship and prayer around the clock during Lockdown 2020.
God’s favour, grace and anointing was so strong on this movement that from day one the pool of worship leaders was enough for almost 24hours of continuous worship over our nation.
At this stage, these heartfelt worship offerings and prayers were featured on a Facebook Page, which was then called Worship South Africa. This virtual platform saw the participation of around 300 worship leaders whose songs, music and prayers reached the homes of over 30 000 South Africans needing to keep in hope, encouragement, faith, and trust for miracles for South Africa despite the uncertainties and challenges of Lockdown.
As various levels of lockdown were relaxed, Worship South Africa encouraged worshippers to the Mission field. This led to a complimentary movement called #Feet On The Street with the challenge to consider where Jesus would be in times of crisis! The heart of Feet on the Street was recognising the authority, Presence and power of believers and worshippers; which needed to be released into cities and nations to influence atmospheres, to impact change and to usher in breakthrough, healing, restoration, peace and God’s plans over territories.
At its peak, there were over 26 active groups around South Africa from major cities to small dorpies with worshippers spilling onto the streets to exalt Jesus and to action God-directed missions. Worshippers released their songs in hospitals, neighbourhoods, strategic government buildings, businesses, schools, public places, homeless shelters, beachfront areas and high places all over South Africa; with full confidence of Joshua 1:3 “I will give you every place where you set foot!”
Besides keeping the nation covered in worship, other blessings that resulted was the unity of worshippers around South Africa; the collaboration, cooperation and knitting of hearts after Jesus, King of Kings, Lord of Lords! There has also been a natural outworking of collaboration through song writing retreats across the country where South African songwriters gather to worship God together, and co-write songs that honour Him.
We had the privilege of capturing some of these beautiful worship moments and songs. We look forward to sharing them with you! They have blessed all the worshippers involved and we trust they will bless YOU! Join us in worship as we release Worship Awake‘s first single, “Break The Bread” As we reflect on God’s goodness over this last season, we recognise that there is more to come and we want to embrace the newness, freshness and increase in what God has started. It is with these stirrings that we now move forward with Worship Awake!
Be sure to add our Worship Awake playlist to your library on Spotify or Apple Music. It’s updated once a month and features a beautiful selection of contemporary worship songs from South African soil; a harvest of anointed voices in our nation!
Join our South African worship artists, passionately exalting Jesus over our land and people!!!
Come taste and see the goodness of our God, as every tribe, tongue and language in our nation invites our King of Glory to take His place.
