BREAKING NEWS! The Roots of Jazz CD recorded live at Carey Baptist Church Reading is out (£10) – profits go to anti-slavery charities.

If you’d prefer a digital version you can buy, stream and download that here.


Due to the government’s advice for large gatherings amidst the corona virus outbreak our next 2 events have been postponed. We will update you with future dates when we have the information.

An outreach event exploring the influence and impact the Christian gospel message had on the development of Jazz.

The evening explores 2 parallel stories, 2 stories that are intertwined in a profound way. The 2 stories are the history of Jazz, particularly the roots of Jazz and also ‘His story’, history itself. The stories are both framed and united by a common theme, the theme of slavery.

“The best evangelistic event I have seen in years!”

We encourage churches to run the event as a charity event in support of A21 or Tamar– Christian charities working to abolish human trafficking/modern day slavery.
