Three big events coming up

The next 6 months are going to be busy for us as we prepare for several different events at different ends of the country. They're all part of our visions and aims to equip worship songwriters to serve the local church and beyond.

28 March Bristol: Songwriter Training Day
A one-day workshop, part of our 'Writing Songs for the Church to Sing' series.

25 April Loughborough: Worship. Justice. Creativity.
A one-day event in partnership with Christian Aid and, among others. To explore and create new ways to engage with justice in our worship.

28 June - 1 July North Yorkshire: Worship Songwriting Retreat
A four day residential for songwriters, with group sessions, one-on-one clinics and plenty of space to write. 

Our newest song: Lord you hear the cry 

We're delighted to share with you our newest song, from our newest writer. Geraldine Latty is a name that will be familiar to many of you, and we're thrilled that Geraldine and her husband Carey have been getting involved with RESOUND over the last year or so. This song is extra-special to us because we recorded some of it at the National Worship Songwriters Day in September last year. That's about 50 people who all feel invested in it, and discovered what a great song it is to sing.

Lord you hear the cry (Lord have mercy) is a wonderful song of praise, prayer, hope and a cry for justice. And it sounds particularly good when everyone breaks into harmonies in the chorus! Geraldine writes:

"...the song is not simply an invocation or demand, but an expression, a cry that reminds us of God's nature, God's past promises; a cry that holds on to hope in what Resurrection Day has accomplished; a cry that is firmly rooted in the kingdom of God coming through us: mercy I receive, pouring out in loving."

As always, you can find piano score, choir score, lead sheet, chord chart, backing track and mp3 on the song page.
