Be part of Garth’s 2019 tour

An evening with Garth Hewitt

Spring 2019


Revd Canon Lucy Winkett, Rector of St James’ Piccadilly, said recently, “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.”

Revd Lucy was referring to Garth’s new book of memoirs Against the Grain – as his book is recently published, Garth will weave readings from it throughout his evening of songs and stories. Traditionally Garth is invited to give concerts, but increasingly frequently now he is being asked to bring his message to Sunday Services which he is happy to do, usually filling the “sermon spot” by answering questions and also illustrating with songs.

The challenges Garth brings seem more important than ever today, and so we are looking for a few more dates to complete his Spring 2019 tour.

Hosting Garth helps bring themes of truth and justice to the forefront of your community and gives Garth a chance to tell stories of hope and courage from some of those around the world whose voices are not often heard.

We aim to make hosting a Garth event as simple as possible and will help in every way that we can. So if you would like more information please contact or by phone 07976 360844.

You will know if you’ve hosted Garth previously that whilst challenging, the evening is also inspiring, energising and fun! And always Garth tells stories born out of visits to partners of Amos Trust.

For further information contact Garth’s PA, Isobel Webster, at or by phone on 07976 360844. Read more…

There is an ancient peace, you carry in your heart

You carry in your heart and have not lost
There is a silence there, the world cannot intrude
The world cannot intrude into your heart
Out hearts must be so quiet, if we are to hear
If we are to hear, we must be still

Garth says, “Recently at concerts when chatting with people I have found that many are struggling with the current world situation; with issues that are happening in terms of wars and violence, refugees, and of course Palestine and Israel. I thought it might be useful to have a few Quiet Days that might give us time to pause and to be reminded of key principles of justice and a spirituality that is rooted in the prophets and in Jesus.

“It would be a time to take stock, to reminisce, to be reminded of our roots, and deliberately to take time to be quiet, time for prayer, liturgy, music and reflection. A day to renew our strength and our vision.
“When I put out feelers about this I found that it seemed to be ringing bells for people.  I’m calling the dayThere is an Ancient Peace,a song that’s onMoonriseandSongs from the Fifth Gospel,which you is rooted in the Garden of Gethsemane.”



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.
