EP from the Church Weekend Away
This EP came around in a very relaxed and last minute way. We found out that we had the kit needed to record live music at the weekend away and that got us thinking… What would be the purpose for us recording live? How could it bless our local church?
In previous years, the church weekend away has been a marvellous landmark for us as a community. Not simply a holy mountain-top experience, which can easily seem so distant from everyday life, but an opportunity for every generation to engage with what God has to say to us and let that steer where we travel next.
So this EP is a pin on the map. It’s not really about the songs that are on there. It’s about what is behind all of that music stuff. The few songs and sounds on this EP are just a window into what went on at the weekend. This EP is about remembering and celebrating what God said and did among us. It’s about remembering the call to go deeper.
The recording itself is raw and a little sketchy around the edges, but it’s God’s, it’s ours and it’s genuine.
