A week ago today I received some exciting news…
As some of you know, I have been joining in with Jazz Community Church’s online worship throughout the pandemic. As well as getting to know a lovely lunch of talented, creative people, this has lead to some opportunities to arrange and compose for the church which has taken my work in a different direction. I’ve also enjoyed the jazz listening sessions on Zoom which have had listeners from across the world joining in.
Over the last year, JCC have been cultivating a new vision for the church as it emerges from lockdown. I was invited to take part in helping to discern the way forward with a new venture to create a platform for releasing new music. This will be jazz arrangements and recordings of some of their music which will resource the wider church. A really exciting project and I’m looking forward to seeing what the Lord does through this.
Anyway, the exciting news is that I’m now a trustee of the church! After some praying and thinking, and some voting in from the church members, I’m now on the trustee team and preparing to get stuck in. It’s a great honour to be asked and a privilege to serve a thriving creative Christian community. I’m looking forward to seeing where we go next!
