I’ve been involved in church music in different capacities at my local church, Kirkintilloch Baptist Church, for many years. During that time I’ve primarily played rhythm guitar and sung but I’ve also played keys, bass and lead guitar occasionally as well as spending time behind the mixing desk. I’ve been running the two youth bands at church for the last three years and lead sung worship with them at our evening services. Since 2017, I’ve also been youth pastor at the church and I’ll be updating the blog with some insights from my experience and hopefully adding some helpful resources for those that are in a similar leadership roles. Please also let me know if you have any questions either by commenting below or using the contact page.
As well as continuing to help develop the youth bands and the emerging leaders there, I’m planning to spend more time writing new songs for the church. I’ll be writing a mixture of songs intended for congregational singing in church as well as more reflective songs. The first of these songs, called “Forevermore“, is out now and it’s based on Psalm 121. I’m planning to write more songs based on the Psalms and these will hopefully be released as an EP or an album in the near future. The song “Hope” below is an old example of a reflective song that I wrote for a church event and recorded at home a few years ago.
I’ll post regular updates about my writing and recording on the blog so please subscribe if you’re interested.
