ELEVATION RELEASES….. ‘Endless Years’ comprises 15 tracks of fresh new worship from UNITED PURSUIT, a musical collective of friends bringing out a folky, gospel/soul sound for a new generation….. ‘Live at the Banks House’ is also released by UNITED PURSUIT. “When asked about how I write songs, I’ve always been quick to explain that I learned how to lead worship in a living room. And most of the songs I’ve written have come out of one living room in particular, a living room in a house we call the banks house. This album is an attempt at capturing our experiences the past three years learning how to seek God in the safety and stillness of our home.” We pray these songs awaken your soul to the love of God and cause you to begin to dream of what it means to pursue God and one another.” Will Reagan…..NEW WINE KIDS “Stand Together” features songs that worship leader, Neil Bennetts hopes will “spill into the everyday lives of children and local churches in this country”…..Meanwhile, from passionate, all consuming praise, to gentle intimacy where you can reach out and touch Jesus, NEW WINE KIDS “Get Up & Dance” features music to facilitate Spirit filled worship…..From the Keswick Convention comes ‘PRECIOUS MOMENTS 5 & 6’. Live inspirational worship to help reflect on our awesome God.
