  • Each one of you is a part of it!

    “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” 1 Corinthians 12:27   The scale of this project has surpassed all expectations! We could never have anticipated that we would have almost 420 submissions from 300 churches and Christian organisations across Ireland. Miraculously, our team managed to include every single vocal and instrumental audio recording submitted, into the audio mix! The monumental task of editing the video is now underway. Given the volume of submissions, the length of the song, and the time constraints we are under, it will be technically impossible to feature everyone in the video, although our team is…

Your people are suffering, and as we cry out for blessing, for hope, for strength, for new life; we know that You hear, we know that You care and we know that You are in control.…
