Recorded in July 2017 in Preston, Lancaster, this live album was produced by Luke Collins, who is responsible for a number of similar recordings. Listening to this July event reveals many high quality musicians, David Scholes on electric guitar featured on the rock-based opener "Heart And Soul" is outstanding for example. The worship leader duties are split amongst five excellent vocalists and the recording of the event (Luke Collins) is superb, however not much of the congregation can be heard. I particularly enjoyed "This Grace" (written by the keys and synth player David Moore) with the great lyrics "'cause your love will never leave me/And your words they serenade me." There is also a Christmas song "Hear The News" written by one the worship leaders, James Baker. I enjoyed this recording, although with so many modern worship albums emanating from the churches it may struggle to be heard beyond the church confines.
