This was our second year serving at Word Alive. It was an unexpected treat to be asked back so soon and it felt like we were all family together. I took my Wife and children with me and they really appreciated the fantastic kids work at Word Alive. 

A highlight for me was the joy in praising our Saviour together on the last night. The gospel choir joined us as a team and there was movement, clapping and even a bit of dancing to a new song "Risen King" we introduced. This conference had the best ending to a conference I've ever known! People were wanting more songs as they went out and we cranked out "Happy Day" then "Risen King" and I've never known a conference to go out with dancing like we had. It was a true joy that it was initiated from the people rather than from the platform!

Another highlight was our time together as a band. We try to have team time a few times when we are away together but we couldn't find the time in the first couple of days so we ended up praying for one another on the Monday evening (our night off). We were sharing and praying for THREE HOURS! It might have been one of the most encouraging times of prayer that I've had and it was fantastic to share life with Jonny, Laurence, Andi, Tom, David and Jess in Wales.

We led the adult and student celebrations each evening and Ben Slee and his team from Christ Church Mayfair led the mornings. I used two songs from my album "The Stream" (download it here) If you'd like a couple of backing tracks for free click here. We did a brand new song in the student meetings "Risen King" which was released in May.

One of the highlights of the week was spending time with Ben Slee and his team. I'd really commend their new EP "Making all things New". My favourite track is one they introduced called "Creator God"
