Planning centre – review

At my church, TCM Baptist Church in Lincoln, we’ve recently invested in a digital, app-based system for displaying music for our musicians - Planning Center’s ‘Music Stand’. Getting to this point was not quick and not straight forward, so I thought I’d give my thoughts and insights into how and…

| Hillsong Worship – Awake | Review

Hillsong Worship have recently released a new album named 'Awake'. It's their first studio album in a long time and it is a beauty in terms of production. Slick, interesting, emotional, and filled with musically beautiful songs. However.. lyrically, we might have some issues.

| North Coast Sessions – Getty | Review

On the surface… This sounds like your standard contemporary christian album.  Lots of rocking guitars and synths and strong bass and drums.  Catchy riffs and sing loud in the car moments. We historically have some awesome songs from Tomlin (how great is our God, our chains are gone, Our God,…
