Sally is joining a local band Liturgical Journey comprised of musicians from churches across Chesham to bring the Easter story alive through music in the Broadway, Chesham on Saturday 26th March from 10.30am. You will find them playing on the green opposite Café Nero near the war memorial. At 11am the URC Choir will be performing on the steps of the URC church and then Liturgical Journey will perform again at 12 noon.
Feedback after event: You guys and girls all rocked today and so lovely that people stopped and listened, when the weather was not so good. The bread man on the market said it sounded fantastic and that people were talking to him about the lyrics we were singing. So our songs are a great evangelical tool to get people talking / thinking. He said you could hear it down at the clock tower! The cafe Nero staff really enjoyed what they heard. An elderly lady at the bus stop was raving about our rendition of “how great thou art”. She loved it ! So all was cool today 🙂 Well done everybody ! Love Jay
On Good Friday, 25h March, there is a united service for Churches Together for Chesham at Broadway Baptist Church at 10.15am.
This is followed by a walk of witness through the pedestrian area of the town centre. Sally will then be leading the first half hour of the Good Friday meditation at St Mary’s Chesham which starts at 12 noon. The first session looks at The Last Supper and how Jesus prepares the disciples for what is to come. A dramatized reading of Luke 22: 7-38 brings the story of the Last Supper alive and is followed by a meditation on Broken for me, broken for you.
Each half hour until 3pm is led by one of the 6 churches in the parish of Great Chesham and people are invited to arrive or leave during the song at the end of each half hour.
Hammad will be performing a concert for The River of Life Ministries organised by Pastor David Rehmat on Saturday 19th March 2016. The venue is Gohawa Village, off the Lahore Ring Road close to the airport, Lahore. For more details contact the local organiser on 0092 322 4308927.
Please pray for the safety of all those attending this event and that people will be blessed and their faith strengthen through an experience of uplifting worship.
Hammad and Sally led a workshop for Christchurch, Chesham worship band to help them improve their skills in playing together and leading worship. Content included how to prepare to worship, the role of the worship band, the importance of listening to each other, band dynamics and song dynamics.
Feedback from Don – Worship leader/guitarist
Hammad, Sally, thanks for the workshop, it was clear that you both put a lot of thought and energy into the preparation. There is no doubt in my mind that we all got a lot from it. Lots of active learning and now we have to implement what we have learned – let’s hope you see the difference when you get back from your travels. Time to take onboard the CAGED system!
Thanks too for Sylvester and Lovisa for sharing your home so that we could have the Blessings

Thank you to you and Hammad and friends for Friday evening. Sorry I had to leave to go and collect the Ley Hill youth from Salt, but I did enjoy my hour with you.

Feedback from John S Team Vicar
Dear Hammad & Sally,
Just a brief note to say thank you so much for leading our worship of God last night – I realise that you must have been very tired after your concert on Saturday, and that you have limited time at home together, so I really appreciate it, and I know that those who were there last night did also. It was such a joy to sing God’s praises, and to be led so wonderfully. I do thank God for your gifts.
with love in Christ,
