London’s Worship Central return this fall with a new live recording that boldly reminds believers that they are Set Apart for the Kingdom of God. The 14-track album releases globally on October 27 through Integrity Music with availability in retail stores and through all major digital service providers including iTunes and Amazon.
Set Apart is a passionate follow-up to Worship Central’s critically acclaimed album Let It Be Known, which was described by Worship Leader magazine as a “must have” and tapped as the magazine’s No. 1 “Editor’s Pick” for worship albums in 2013.
With Set Apart, Worship Central director Tim Hughes (“Here I Am To Worship”) and team members Ben Cantelon (“Love Came Down”), Nikki Fletcher (“All Glory”), and Luke Hellebronth (“Spirit Break Out”) deliver a new set of songs written both in and for the Church. The album also features guest co-writers including Dove Award nominee Benji Cowart and GRAMMY Award nominee Jason Ingram.
The resulting tracklist takes listeners from joy-filled praise to intimate moments of worship with songs like “Stand Up,” a rousing call for unity, and the promise-filled “Dead Things To Life.” The song “Enough Light” is a faith-building, slow burning anthem of encouragement while the songs “Let Go” and “The Way” are fuel for the journey, and the title track reminds believers that they are “Set Apart for our God above, Set Apart for the One we love.”
The album ends with the ideal benediction, the prayerful song “Singing Over Us,” a nod to Zephaniah 3:17, followed by the spontaneous worship song, “Wide Open Spaces,” led by Tim Hughes. As the album closes, listeners hear Hughes declaring: “God is calling us to be his good news, God is calling us to be his love to a broken world… to a fatherless generation.”
Worship Central have released two videos from the live recording of Set Apart through YouTube, with the title track available at “Set Apart” and the radio single available at “The Way”. They will share these songs and others from Set Apart and their previous albums at the 2014 Worship Central conference slated for October 31-November 1 at Central Hall Westminster. The event, which offers a variety of workshops from the Worship Central training team, also features guest speakers and worship leaders Martin Smith, Bryan and Katie Torwalt, Louie Giglio, Jake Isaac and Mike Pilavachi.

Worship Central is a movement to train, equip and resource worship leaders, musicians and worshippers. Since its launch in 2006 under the auspices of Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB), the church that developed the groundbreaking “Alpha Course,” tens of thousands of people have attended training events on three continents, and hundreds of thousands have visited Worship Central’s website for practical resources. Tim Hughes writes, “…there’s a real need to train worship leaders spiritually, practically and with good leadership skills. Our passion is to see the worship life of the local church around the world explode.”
