Also…if you would like to tag your Church onto one of the tours or have a one off visit, please let me know.

e mail me at ishmael@ishmael.org.uk

Can’t get enough of these concert gigs so please keep them coming in…10 years ago lying in a hospital bed I never dreamt that God had lined up for me such exciting and fun times to happen a decade later!

Your concert choice.

‘Sting in the Tale’ acoustic concert (suitable for adults both believers and seekers). It’s a night of stories! I play and sing some of my Bible story songs and in between songs I tell a little of my crazy life story! A great fun, gently evangelistic concert. (90 minutes)

‘Glorie Days’ acoustic concert (suitable for older children and adults).
In this concert I sing and play some of the favourite songs from the ’Glorie Company’ days and these were songs enjoyed by all ages not just by children. I also tell some amazing stories of how I witnessed God using children. An inspiring yet fun sing-a-long concert and if any of the audience have never heard of Glories…it makes no difference they will still love it! (60-75 minutes)

‘Scripture Song’ ‘acoustic concert (suitable for older children and adults)
In the latest concert I sing and play about 26 of my most popular Bible teaching and Scripture verse songs. All the songs are instantly sing-a-long-able and incredibly memorable. I guarantee all who attend will leave having learned a little more about the Bible in a great fun way. (60-75 minutes)

‘Praise Party’A concert which is fun & very lively! Every song requires audience involvement and participation hence it is ideal for very young children and their parents / grandparents etc. (45 minutes if prior to a concert)


Christ is Risen!

You can say you are agnostic, and you wish to stay that way
You say atheism seems more real than what Christians have to say
You say the Bible is outdated, read another book instead
But you could not stop my Jesus from rising from the dead

You can say He wanted rebellion, and He wanted anarchy
And as for being God’s only son that was blasphemy
You can say His fame and worship had made Him lose his head
But you could not stop my Jesus from rising from the dead.

You can tell your lies about Him, and try and put Him in His place
You could beat Him til it was impossible to recognise His face
You could leave Him hanging on a hill which His blood is turning red
But you could not stop my Jesus from rising from the dead.

You can say He is fictitious, you can say He’ll never last
You can say in the 21st century, He’s just a relic from the past
You can say what you like about my Lord, but I won’t be misled
Cos you could not stop my Jesus, from rising from the dead.

You could not stop my Jesus, from rising from the dead.

A truly happy Easter to all my friends.


Concert and a Praise Party

I’ve just been invited back to Finedon (Near Wellingborough) on Friday September 14th so if anyone would like a visit on the Wednesday or Thursday 12th & 13th of September please let me know.

I’m really looking for 2 Churches, north of London and south of Nottingham…roughly, the midlands area for that mini-tour.

Now Finedon (and others) have asked if as well as doing a concert which is primarily for adults and older children, whilst I am with them could I also do an ‘after school Praise Party’ especially for the younger children in their Church.

The answer is yes of course, I just want to be used as much as I can by God…whilst I still can be!

I do still love doing Praise Parties where I teach simply about Jesus, and make sure that every song I that sing requires some sort of participation and fun from the little ones attending. As with the concerts large numbers are not important.

I would do the 45-60 minute Praise Party around 5.00pm so it would still be fine to start the concert at 7pm or 7.30pm.

So, if you would like a visit during September please let me know.

If you would like a visit (wherever you live) at another time…please also let me know!

You can choose out of the 3 concerts which concert you would prefer.

1)’Sting in the Tale’ my testimony concert.

2) ‘Glorie Day’s concert’ where I tell you about the wonderful ways that I have seen God use children over the years and sing favourite songs that all ages will enjoy and can join in singing with me.

3) ‘Scripture Song Concert”. The latest concert (which will be premiered at Spring Harvest Minehead this year) where I revive a lot of my most popular Scripture songs and I guarantee amidst all the fun, everyone will leave having learned a little more about the Bible. Soooo important!

Please e mail me (ishmael@ishmael.org.uk) if you are interested and would like more info.


God surprises!

Although we have all experienced bad and sad surprises, tomorrow in the Cathedral I will preaching on the happy surprises that our Heavenly Father constantly gives to us His children!

One of the things I will be saying is…

God has also surprised me relatively recently by giving me the opportunity to tour the country again with my evangelism concerts.

In fact I can’t remember a time when I’ve been so busy!

Just a few years ago with Leukaemia, I never thought I’d be well enough to do this again.

And may I add a thank you for your continued support and prayers as I travel and continue doing what I so love doing.

And of course….thanks be to God for giving me this wonderful surprise!
