Shape My Soul

This song is about taking the time to reconnect with God after times in the 'Wilderness", a theme that is strong in the first part of Matthew's gospel.

Deeper into you

DEEPER INTO YOU is a reflective song especially appropriate for the "Sharing and Speaking" phase of NCYC 2011, as well as the "Faith: Receiving the Signal" initial component.

Ultimately it's a song concerning a life of prayer - a life that is founded in God: God who draws us "inward", into God, before sending us out in mission.

This arrangement, for vocalist reasons has been recorded in verses 1 and 2 in the key of C, before modulating to D. The original score is in F.

Grace & peace

Open heaven

Always wanted to use the very common biblical phrase ‘Don’t be afraid’, and especially relating it to God-here-and-now. ‘Perfect love drives out fear’ (1 John 4:18).
The great German preacher, Helmut Thielicke, provided the title/chorus.


Amazing is an upbeat song that I wrote for gathering people into worship and learning. The main message of the song is that, getting to know God and Jesus better helps us to share the love that Jesus demonstrated for us. The simple act of loving others can allow amazing things to happen.

This song has proved very popular at our church over the last couple of months since I wrote it. As well as using it to gather people in at start of worship, we have also used it at the end of the service as a sending out. It works as a reminder of why we gathered, and what we have to do when we leave.


Mighty is an uptempo praise song, it's about understanding how mighty He is not just in our lives but all around us.
A very raw recording with some slight mistakes but hope you enjoy it.


Turn it up!

TURN IT UP! is a joyful call for young people (as part of all of God's people) to step up to the plate in being "full-on" for God in faith, worship and mission. The verses are deliberating affirmative - "We will walk his way ...". "We will seek your truth", "We will love you" and so on. Having said that, TURN IT UP! acknowledges the ongoing and essential dialogue between our being "out there" for Christ, and through prayer and reflection, our "inner life".
