Tony is the worship director at Oak Tree Anglican Fellowhsip in Acton, West London, one of the Holy Trinity Brompton churches. In fact, though Tony wrote all 10 of the contemporary worship songs here he doesn’t actually sing them, that task goes to Fraser McDermott, an ex-worship leader at Oak Tree who now pastors a church in North Wembley. Many of the songs focus on God’s awesome grace and were inspired by authors such as Philip Yancey and Neil Anderson. The best track and production is the title track with a funky backbeat and some nice studio effects though the gentle and rather lovely “While I Was Far Away” sounds like it oculd touch any congregation if they get to hear it. An impressive debut for both Tony & Fraser.
