Indeed most of the inspiration for the worship songs he has written has come from the spiritual journey that he and the Belfast congregation have taken.

Leading worship in conferences and events such as Mandate, Spring Harvest and Together for the Kingdom increased his profile in Britain and Europe and resulted in an Integrity Music recording called Revival in Belfast.

The impact of this album presented ministry opportunities in Europe, the USA, Canada, Australia and the rest of the world.

The musical fun continues on Saturday June 21 with Jools Holland and his special guests Melanie C and Marc Almond.

Jools Holland formed The Jools Holland Big Band – comprising himself and Gilson Lavis. This has gradually metamorphosed into the current 20-piece Jools Holland and His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, which consists of pianist, organist, drummer, three female vocals, guitar, bass guitar, two tenor saxophones, two alto saxophones, baritone saxophone, three trumpets, and four trombones.

Tickets are on sale now from all usual outlets.
