“Hillsong’s band United are third on the ARIA charts this week. But that’s no fluke. Fronted by Joel Houston, the son of Hillsong’s founders,the band have enjoyed success here and abroad for years – selling out stadiums in places including the USA.
He says their success is down to God.
“It’s hard to explain it outside the scandalous nature of God’s grace,” says Houston.
Other Pentecostal churches are using music in their services too.
Ryan Smith from Christian City Church says music helps them appeal to a younger crowd.
He says Hillsong are by far the most successful with their music.
“(They are) the most successful worship experience that’s available for purchase in the world today,” says Smith.
