Big Church Night In

Many of you will have heard of the Big Church Day Out, a three day Christian music festival (for want of a better description), which is the brainchild of Tim Jupp who was the keyboard player with Delirious? This year over 25,000 people attended, including a number of people from Kerith.

I've got to know Tim over the last couple of years (he's a great guy) and he recently asked whether we'd be willing to host a variant of the event, called the Big Church Night In. This is going to take place at the Kerith Centre on Wednesday 28th November, and will feature Matt Redman and Rend Collective.

I guess Matt Redman will be a familiar name to most of us, but Rend Collective may be a bit more of an unknown quantity. As you may guess from the photo above they're quite a quirky group, with a strong Nothern Ireland folk influence (John Mitchell will love them!). They played at RockNations this year and the youth thought they were brilliant - you can catch a beautifully filmed video of them here.

I wouldn't normally mention an event like this until nearer the time, but it is a ticketed event and from what Tim has told me tickets are selling quickly. I therefore wanted to make sure all from Kerith got to hear about it early so that none of us miss out. You can find more details and can book your tickets here - I hope you can be there for what should be a great evening.

Simon.
