Yesterday the Hillsong Worship team announced they will no longer join Casting Crowns on tour with We the Kingdom.
“Whilst we are deeply disappointed to have to make this difficult decision, we do feel that is the right one at this time in our history and the decision that, for us, requires the most faith,” the band explained on their Instagram.

Hillsong Worship stated that many of its members are also staff members of the megachurch who are taking the time to figure out how they will move forward in the wake of the changes.
“Our community is hurting but hope-filled,” the band said. “With the full support and endorsement of our senior church leadership, we believe the decision not to go on tour this month is the one that puts the health and well-being of the people on our team first. Now is the time for us to humbly see the Lord, to grieve in hope and to heal in community, together.”
