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.”
Invite Garth to your church or venue
An evening with Garth Hewitt
Bookings now being taken for 2020 – and one or two dates now available this autumn, 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.”
The challenges Garth brings seem more important than ever today, and so we are looking for more bookings for 2020 – and there are also one or two dates now available for autumn 2019
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…
Garth says, “I was in Banksy’s Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem where there is a gallery for Palestinian artists, and saw a painting by the superb Palestinian artist Suleiman Mansour. I found the painting so powerful, I said that I would like to put together a song sparked off by this painting – I thought it could be a 12” vinyl single with the painting on the front cover.
I told my good friend Wisam Salsaa, Manager of the Walled Off Hotel, and he phoned Suleiman for his permission, which was kindly given. I then wrote to various Palestinian friends showing them the painting, and asked them for their thoughts. Those thoughts I have reflected in the lyrics. It all came together as this song, My Name is Palestine.”
To accompany the single, and for those without a record player (!) Garth has released a CD with My Name Is Palestine as the title track, along with ten further songs emphasising the dignity and value of each human being, with a strong rejection of the arms trade and war.
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.
