Dear Members and Friends of IBCZ,
If you joined us for worship last Sunday, you recall that one of our worship leaders, Cassie Yip, shared an announcement regarding our worship songs. She has also written the Newsletter article for this week, which gives the details for how you can learn and listen to our worship songs from home. Her article is below.
Grace and peace,
Dear Church Family,
Our church is full of people with diverse backgrounds denominationally and musically. The beauty of this is that one cannot really define IBCZ’s style, making it all the better that we can truly focus on spreading the good news of the gospel. However, this can also be a challenge as musical worship is an important and integral part of connecting with fellow believers and with God. To make it easier for everyone, we have created a playlist on Spotify that contains all the songs we sing in our services. This will therefore allow for the following:
- You can listen to the songs on your own time and become familiar with the songs we sing.
- When we introduce new songs to IBCZ’s repertoire, we can release them earlier and again allow for more familiarization. You can also easily find it after the service in the playlist.
To access this list, click on this link from your phone or laptop: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/493isTxBPQGxugtDM1f7H6?si=0e52dcb44c9246ef
It should take you straight to the playlist which is called “IBCZ Songs.” If you do not have an account, it will first ask you to create an account. When you are looking at the playlist, click on the heart icon to “follow” the list. It should then be added to your library and be easily accessible to you when you use Spotify. Unfortunately, you do not get notified if songs are added, however you can check the “added date” to see when the last song was added. Currently, the playlist contains ~100 songs totaling over 7 hours of music! This does not even cover all the songs we have in our rotation, but we hope this will be a good start and will give you encouragement in your everyday life.
Not everyone uses Spotify, so we will also create a YouTube list under the IBCZ account. This will be available within the next month for those who prefer to use YouTube.
