First album for Canterbury's The City Church

Thankful Hearts

THE CANTERBURY-based City Church are set to release their album 'Thankful Hearts'. Said worship team leader Olly Knight, "Over the last few years we've wanted more and more celebration songs that we can use in our corporate worship that go deep with their content. Often we haven't been able to find these kind of songs so a couple of years ago we decided as songwriters to try and write them. I was songwriting with a group at a couple's house from church and the lady who was hosting us said 'where can we listen to the songs we sing on Sunday mornings? You should think about recording an album'. This got us thinking that with an album we could resource our church with the songs that we sing on Sunday mornings. Families could worship along to the songs at home, the songs could help with quiet times in the car or out and about on a run! We also thought that the songs could serve other churches in our family of churches and beyond." CR
