Let's get to the point here: United Pursuit's song Break Every Chain is massively popular. But what’s interesting is the fact that it’s massively popular for more than just one flavour of church.

Tasha Cobbs's version has connected with millions. If the choir robes don’t do it for you,

the preach at the end will. Worship, teaching, ministry all in one.

Classic Bethel Church treatment. Moody, messy and mile high. 

 

 

Gospel voices, rock drums and - when things get going - a tweak to the lyrics -

‘we’re going to break every chain’. Intriguing.

 

 

And the song has even headed down to South America...

 

 

It’s not just about the music. The song’s got motion as well… have a look at this

Interpretative Dance version.

 

 

Forget the poor audio, focus on the drama. There’s something great about the way

this church brings performance and worship together.
