Concert songs list

Having gratefully received a list of the favourite Scripture Songs you enjoyed singing I thought it might be an idea to let you know what songs i will be singing at the “Sting in the Tale’ and the ‘Glorie Days’ concerts.

This will give all those coming to either concert or planning to book one, the chance to remind yourselves of the songs beforehand so on the big day you can come along ready to belt out the singing with me!

At the ‘Sting’ concert which includes my edited life story (testimony) and is more suitable for adults, we will be singing Nicodemus, The Grunting song, King of glory, 2 Timothy 2, Laodecean Church, Delight yourself, Down in a noisy small valley and Father God I wonder.

At the Glorie Days concert that is suitable for older children as well, we will be singing It’s amazin what praisin can do, Lord you put a tongue, Down in a noisy small valley, Jehovah Jireh, Put on the sword, We will praise we will praise, Spiders, GLORIE, We are the Glorie Company, We are in God’s army, I will wave my hands, 5000+, Though the grass, Why do you look here, My God shall supply, Jesus said if you have faith, You never put a light, What a long hard day it’s been, Glorie train and Father God I wonder.

Do any of these songs bring back any memories????? Try and come to one of the concerts and join me in singing them one last time!

Still time to book either concert this year and remember, large audiences are not important and it can cost the local Church as little as £50 to host one!


Help needed please

Ok Glorie Gang.

A bit of help needed from those who have listened to my Scripture Song CDs over the past 40 years!

Just working on the new ‘Glorie Days Are Here Again’ concert which will be premiered at Spring Harvest Minehead on Wednesday April 4th then (God willing and if people want me) performed nationally throughout 2019.

But as I said I do need your help.

All the songs for that concert will be my Bible and Scripture songs.

I’ve already selected most of the set but…as some of you know I have written dozens of Scripture songs and would like to know your favourite or favourites out of the following to help me to choose which ones to do.

Here’s 7 possibles.

1) Jesus said let little children come unto me 2) 39 Thirty Nine 3) In the 16th verse of chapter 3 4) Do not store up treasures on earth 5) For if you forgive men when they sin against you 6) Don’t be afraid 7) We believe in Hebrews 13:8

If you have never heard of any of them may I suggest you go to my website shop and buy the two 52 Scripture Songs CDs…Great way to learn Scripture! (Unintentional Plug)!

Many thanks.


Lacock date change

We have changed the date for the Lacock ‘Glorie Days’ concert.
It will not be on Friday February 2nd as originally planned but will now be on Friday February 23rd.
Please adjust your diaries if you were planning to come along and join in the fun!


Just thinking about my travelling future…..

Just thinking about my travelling future…obviously not the too long term future at my age!

This year I am in the process of arranging a few national mini tours performing the ‘Glorie Days’ all age concerts playing my favourite Glorie Company sing a long songs and stories.

2019 planning a few tours with the brand new ‘Glorie days are here again’ all age concerts which will be premiered at Minehead spring harvest this year and will be made up of Just my sing-a-long scripture songs and stories.

2020 the big one celebrating the ‘50 years of travelling ministry’ concerts. All my very favourite songs and untold stories over 50 years of gigging.

And finally (Maybe) 2021 the ‘50 years anniversary of Ishmael and Andy’ a few gigs where I’m going to try and encourage my very long time best buddy to do a few gigs with me again….reviving our 50 year old set!

We will of course need to sleep beforehand and have ovaltine waiting for us afterwards!

Of course this is ‘God willing’ but I feel it’s always good to make plans and have projects to look forward to and as yet, God has not informed me that He seems to have plans for me to urgently join him and to be honest I think He seems pretty pleased that I’m carrying on doing what I’m doing down here for the foreseeable future.

All thanks be to God….yea…let’s rock on!

Still open to visit a some more churches in the next few years.


An amazing year!

What an amazing year it’s been!

Travelling to Bognor Regis, Chafford Hundred, Chiddingfold, Littlehampton, Wadhurst, Eastbourne, Shoreham, Minehead, Wolverhampton, Walsall, Earl Shilton, Blackpool, Ilfracombe, South Harting, Southampton, Haxey, Lincoln, Boston, Sleaford, Horsham, Yapton, Brighton, Evesham, Rogate, Coventry, Birmingham, Nuneaton, St Ives, Comberton, Bradford on Avon, Felpham, Shrewsbury, Oswaldtwistle, Manchester, Bradford and Cudham doing concerts, praise parties and preaching.

Then ministering regularly in the Cathedral, visiting cancer patients and of course the odd game of golf… roughly twice a week!

I never stop praising God for these wonderful opportunities to serve him.

Although I was ready to go and be with Him nearly 10 years ago, I am so grateful that he has allowed me some extra time on earth and without doubt, has given me more energy than ever!

It’s hard to believe that I am now doing more travelling and ministry than I was before the leukaemia was diagnosed! Thanks be to God!

And you know what…next year looks even more exciting!

Of course I would not be telling you the whole truth if I did not mention that there have been difficult times, disappointment and sadness…but they do fade into insignificance compared to all the blessings I have received.

So thank you all for your encouraging words, love, prayers, gifts and support. I so appreciate it, I so appreciate all my friends!

Have a great Christmas…and looking forward to seeing many of you face to face on my travels in 2018.
