If you check out the Calendar page you will see a new crop of events in coming months, both for me as an individual and theREIGN as a band. Here are the highlights (as it were).
Tomorrow (October 25th) theREIGN are leading worship for the Marfleet Mission Team’s commissioning service at St Hilda’s Church, Greatfield. It is a great privilege to be asked to take part in this service, and the team itself is an exciting development in what is a very poor and spiritually barren part of the City.
The band have also been invited to lead the music for the Christmas Service at Archbishop Sentamu Academy (formerly Archbishop Thurstan School) in East Hull.
Finally (for now), Holy Trinity, Barrow on Humber, have asked us back again for the weekend of 7 and 8 February 2009 … this time for a Saturday evening concert, followed on Sunday evening by Rock Eucharist version 1.0. The two events we have held at that church in 2008 have been brilliant and spiritually uplifting for both the band and the church(es), and we are already looking forward to another return visit.
Outside the band, following a successful gig at Manna last weekend, Kat and I are awaiting a return invitation to play at another of their music evenings in 2009 … otherwise known as another opportunity for Kat to put on her high heels and sing some sleazy jazz numbers. Or something.
We have also been invited to lead worship for St Barnabas Church’s youth leaders “Pudding and Praise” night on 28 November, at which there will definitely be Christmas pudding and no sleazy jazz.
It is great to be busy, but it is also pressurised, particularly with day jobs and family commitments to also fit in, so we (and theREIGN) would greatly value your prayers over the next few months.
