NEW FOR 2015! 4. Newsboys - Hallelujah For The Cross
Genre: Pop / Rock
As a worship leader, I often find myself looking for new music for worship services, and it’s easy to forget how good some old favourite hymns can be for our congregation, especially when given an effective modern twist. These are songs that everyone has grown up with and knows so well. As inspiration, have a listen to the album 'Hallelujah for the Cross' by Newsboys. In fact, we believe so strongly in the effectiveness of giving a makeover to traditional hymns and worship songs, that we have dedicated an entire article and playlist of our favourite modern and re-worked traditional hymns.

12. Francesca Battistelli - Lead Me To The Cross
Genre: CCM
Francesca Battistelli's song has been one of my favourite Easter songs for several years. Not only does it make a great congregational song, but to sing it is to sing a personal prayer. And with a chorus consisting of these lyrics, you’ll see why. “Lead me to the cross where your love poured out / Bring me to my knees, Lord I lay me down / Rid me of myself - I belong to You / Lead me - Lead me to the cross”. A definite contender for your Easter service this year!

14. Bayside Worship - Selah & Sun Will Rise
Genre: Alternative
Coming from the Worship Ministry of Bayside Community Church as an outreach, the seamless joining of these two tracks (listen to the combined songs on Soundcloud) would lead perfectly from a time of reflection to a time sung worship at any time of year, and particularly at Easter.
