Evenings of Worship around the nation and nations where God has broken in and we have seen His unprecedented presence transform lives.

Creative presentations – merging music, spoken word and drama to tell gospel stories.

SOW 4:14 – a two day creative holiday club where we invest into the lives of 4 – 14 year olds to help them engage with God.

School of Worship – a time to be trained up, encouraged and equipped to return to their local communities using music in their mission.

Community Choirs – building family and confidence.

Free vocal & instrumental lessons – seeing people who wouldn’t otherwise have such opportunities to flourish and develop musically.

Schools work – taking concerts about culture, infused with stories of our spiritual inheritance into Welsh and RE departments in schools across Wales.
