A Scripture Song Concert review

A few weeks ago I did one of my Scripture Song concerts at St Philips Church in Bradford.

Zarine who organised the event sent me this…which I think sums up a little of what my travelling concerts are all about.

The Scripture Songs concert felt like spending time with a mate who was helping you revise for an exam, a mate who has a guitar and a talent for putting the study material to catchy tunes.

I’d have liked more people to have come but a small group worked very well with the acoustic set, better than a more lavish production would have done.

Ish says.

My concerts are deliberately informal and intimate, numbers attending really are not important because it’s those who attend and want to be there that I have come to entertain and minister to.

I mean, Jesus did face large crowds but He also seemed to spend a lot of His time with just 12 people and often even cut the 12 down to 3!

I really don’t need vast buildings, I can bring all the gear (including projector and screen) to do a concert in a cosy small hall if you have one…maybe needs to be a little larger than a lounge though to fit my shop in :)!

Felpham Methodist Church Concert tonight

Tonight I will be back at Felpham Methodist Church near Bognor doing the Scripture Song Concert.
Already have done both ‘Sting in the Tale’ and ‘Glorie Days’ concerts here over the past couple of years so I know I will be meeting up again with a very enthusiastic audience!
We begin the fun at 7.00pm and it will all be over by around 8.30pm so young…. or my age….if you live nearby do come and join in the fun!
As a special treat brother will be joining me and adding to the noise with his bass guitar!

Friday November 23rd Stafford

Great news.
Although sadly things didn’t work out for the concert in Stoke on Friday November 23rd, I will now be doing the same concert, on the same night but down the road in Stafford instead.
The ‘Scripture Song Concert’ will be held at the
Stafford Elim Christian Centre
St. Patrick’s Street
ST16 2PL and will begin at 7.30pm.
Suitable for all ages except very young children, do come and join in the fun if you live anywhere nearby.

Friday November 23rd

Sadly my visit to Stoke on Friday November 23rd has had to be cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

However, I will still be in the area as I am in Crewe the day before and Shrewsbury the day after.

This means that I will have an evening free on the Friday.

If you worship anywhere near Stoke (within roughly 25 miles) I would love to pop into your Church and spend an hour or two with you on the Friday?

Obviously at such short notice I’m not expecting large crowds and it may only be your congregation that attend but that is fine.
There will be no cost but I just ask that an offering can be made on the night to help with the expenses.

Time is of the essence so if you are interested please can you e mail me straight away…I promise you a fun and very special night!

PS. If you have friends or contacts in the area who may not see this post, please can you let them know about it for me. Thanks.
