‘Campfire’ by Rend Collective music review
Rating: 5/5 stars

Background Info

Rend Collective Experiment are a Northern Irish Christian Experimental, folk/rock worship band originating from Bangor, Northern Ireland. The band have released 3 albums now, ‘Campfire’ being the most recent (they released ‘Organic Family Hymnal’ in September 2010 and ‘Homemade Worship for Homemade People’ in January 2012). Campfire was released in January this year (2013). They use a wide range of instruments from the Ukulele to the Boadhram!


The album starts off with a reflective version of ‘Kumbaya’ as an introduction, to give you a taste of what the album is like, lasting about 30 second. The other songs on the album last a standard 3-4 minutes each.

There are songs on the album that are reflective, such as ‘Desert Soul’ (track number 3), ‘You Bled’ (track number 7) and ‘Alabaster’ (track number 8) , where you can just allow the music to help you think about worshipping God and these songs provide an intimate link between you and God.


There are also songs that you can sing and dance to, and just let yourself go while listening to them, such as ‘Build Your Kingdom Here’ (track number 3), ‘You Are My Vision’ (track number 5) and ‘Praise Like Fireworks’ (track number 12) where you can enjoy yourself and forget about any worries that you have and just give them to God (I often do this!)


This band boasts expertise in a subtle way, with the way the bands voices blend together, creating a layered effect. The lead singer of the band (Chris Llewellyn) shows masterful control of his voice, using it artfully.

Personal Favourites

  • ‘Come on’ (track number 2)
  • ‘Desert Soul’ (track number 3)
  • ‘Praise Like Fireworks’ (track number 12)

However, I love the whole album and listen to it on a regular basis!

I strongly recommend for you to buy this CD! At a reasonably prices £6.99 for the MP3 version from Amazon and £10 (and £2 posting and packaging) from http://rendcollective.com/campfire-order-splash/

It’s excellent value for a CD and it’s well worth the money and you won’t regret buying it!

Thank you for reading my first official blog post, I hope you enjoyed it!

This week I'd like to tell you about a very special experience I had at Soul Survivor this year...

The speaker invited those who wished to receive the gift of tongues to go forward. I'd always wanted tongues, so I went forward to give it a go. However, I could not have imagined what happened next. I could hear two of my friend's around me beginning to speak in tongues. My eyes were closed and I began to see most of my life re-played including the parts I found distressing. I didn't really want to go there again but then a golden light enveloped me and warmed me and I felt really peaceful. I heard the words: ''I'm here" as each scene unfolded.

Eventually it all faded and I was aware of the people around me, still praying for me. I was quite disappointed that it was over but so glad it had happened. I was crying and shaking with the intensity and yet felt so peaceful that I never wanted the moment to end. Rend Collective were playing 'Build Your Kingdom Here'. I was actually told the whole encounter had lasted about 45 minutes!!!! I truly believe that I had been in God's presence and that He is with me in all the good times and bad.

Blessings

Katy

Hi! Welcome to ‘All For The Good!’ I am Katy! Today I am answering the question: ‘what do you like about your church?’

 

I like basically everything about my church! I’m lucky that in that my church is family orientated so there are a lot of children/young people my age and I’m quite close with all the youth at my church! Our church family are all very welcoming and I always feel comfortable at church. The worship songs are also, good, which is great as I love singing!

Also, our church has different age groups for the youth to go on Sundays: there is a crèche, then a group for years 7-9, then a group that I am moving into called ‘The Hub’ which meets every second and fourth Sunday for years 10+. It is a discussion group, particularly focussing on topical issues and questions we may have. (It is only alternate Sundays so that we get used to sitting in church right the way through and interacting with the adult service). The pastors at our church are great speakers and will pray for you and are very supportive and kind! I also sometimes play my flute in the worship band which is great! I love my church!

September
By Sue Goodall



Children in coats
Sizes too big
Their faces mirrored
In shiny shoes
Kicking the crinkly
Turning leaves...
Old season out,
In with the new.



Adults with worries
Shoulders weighed down
Ash-grey faces
Secrets unguessed.
Oh that they knew
That He is saying,
''Come those heavy laden
And I'll give you rest.''

Today I am answering the question: ‘What is it like being a Christian at school?’

That’s a hard question to answer! I don’t make it obvious at school that I am a Christian, which I often feel bad about as I feel like I should but I just don’t have the confidence to I think. However I do refuse to let people ‘use the Lord’s name in vain’ and people respect that. Also I would never deny being a Christian if asked.

I do feel fairly comfortable being a Christian at school because my school is a Christian school, (although not everyone who goes to my school is a Christian). We have voluntary Eucharist’s and a Chapel we can go in if we’re upset or annoyed about anything and a Chaplin who we can talk to as well!

I’m also on a Faith and Worship committee at school and we’re discussing how to tell people about God in schools and the community at the moment!

Thanks for listening/reading!
