A worship leader with Hillsong Worship was hospitalized after suffering a brain aneurysm, but is recovering following a nine-hour surgery.
Chelsea Taylor, a member of the worship team at the Hills campus based in Sydney, Australia, suffered the aneurysm soon after worship on Sunday and was transported to the hospital.
In a statement posted to Instagram, Hillsong described Taylor as “a worshiper, a lover of Jesus and one of the purest hearts ever” and told followers that she “could do with your prayers.”
“She has just come through a 9 hour brain surgery and we are believing for no more bleeds complete healing and miracles in Jesus name — we are not out of the woods by any means — tonight she is in ICU but we believe in Jesus, his resurrection power and for hope to appear,” Hillsong stated.
Hillsong’s Cass Langton posted an update from Taylor’s mother about the worship leader’s condition on Tuesday, explaining that the singer was recovering.
“Chelsea pulled the life-support out last night. She is talking and trying to get out of bed. Honestly this is a miracle,” read the statement posted by Langton.
“I just told her the whole church is praying and fasting all over the world and she smiled and said thanks mum,” she added, noting that Taylor was being moved out of intensive care.
