An evening of enjoyment, prayers, and stories of struggle and hope in a time of uncertainty.
Garth brings an ancient message – first heard on a hillside, in a garden, in a marketplace, sometimes even a place of worship. We join him as he sings and tells his stories in a local church, and experience the intimacy and friendliness for which his concerts are known as he interacts with his audience, who respond with singing and laughter.
You will feel as though you had been there.
Garth says, “This was a warm and friendly evening, and interestingly I knew many people in the audience from different stages of my ministry. As I look at the film I spot someone who was in our youth club at St Luke’s Maidstone when I was Curate there – I spot people who have promoted concerts for me through the years, people who have been on Amos journeys with us to the Holy Land, Nicaragua, even South Africa. I spot someone who has sung songs of mine in all sorts of different places, which I always feel is a great compliment. There’s a thirteen year old lad who comes regularly to my concerts when I’m in the area – so there’s a good mixture of supporters, encouragers, and friends.”
We thank you for the model of
the community of love which you showed us
We thank you for the witness of churches in San Pedro Sula, Honduras
Of Pequeno Nazareno working with street children in Fortaleza Brazil
We thank you for the artists and broadcasters that reflect the truth in difficult times
We thank you for all those who make visible
the loving spirit of your gospel.
We pray that we will find that strength,
that we will link arms together,
to be a community of hope
These are hard times, even puzzling times,
so we need to be reminded day by day
to make a difference –
to reject the ways of violence
We thank you for those who have been examples to us
We thank you for those who picked up the torch and led the way
May we do the same
And may our churches bring hope that resonates for all,
May they be courageous, prophetic, loving and just.
Garth Hewitt writes redemption songs
and then sings them without fear.
His voice comes through clearly,
challenging us by his witness to act for justice. His is a brave voice,
needed more than ever in a fearful world, and in a sometimes timid church.
Please God, it will help us
sing redemption songs of our own.
