So this year we are going to have a 21st birthday for revive. I will be on 8th November in Leeds. There will be a family-friendly thing going on during the day, and then a big party in the evening.

Just so you know!

Hi everyone!

Thanks for Doodling again. Here are the dates for our two planning meetings:

Music and worship (and creativity in general, and maybe a chat about an album): Sunday 26th May 10am, at the Bennetts – 24 WHA

Strategy (looking particularly at small groups, mission and our membership structure): Thursday 30th May 8pm, 15 VR

No-one has to come, but please do if you want to contribute!

Much love,

Simon

Yesterday was a fantastic gathering at James & Giselle’s. I videoed Jamie’s performance which can now be viewed below:

I am a Director, Musician and Performer based in Leeds and I wrote this song about 5 years ago when I was a part of Pointed Arrow Performance’s core artistic direction team. The theatre company comprised of a variety of faith perspectives and would actively encourage conversations and dialogues about faith, politics and everything in-between. It was through the work we made as a theatre company making performances for public spaces and non-theatre venues as well as the everyday conversations we had with each other and with the different communities we made work with and for that I found my way back to God.

I started a new journey or at least a new chapter, a real honesty and openness with God, learning that challenging and wrestling with different thoughts and ideologies was a healthy part of being a good Christian. I guess in a way this is my love song to God. A way to give thanks.

Those who do God, do good.

It took me a while to find this report

but now that I have I’m fascinated. It’s fun seeing the Guardian struggle with the idea that religious people in the UK are significantly more likely to be left-wing than the general population:

Dan Norton’s dad remixed one of our songs before we’d even recorded it – bet you didn’t know that!

A blast from the past…

Sadly, the CD from the launch of revive’s first ‘proper’ album has gone the way of all rewritable media, but I’ve managed to salvage one track from it…

I’ve started updating our shared calendar, which can be found at the top of every page on http://www.reviveleeds.org

If you are someone who makes something happen, and you want to tell people about it, contact me for details of how to log in and update the calendar (although cats’ birthdays are probably not appropriate – that’s the furry animals, not Cat Tatman).
