The winner of 2007's CBC Media Awards for Music Video Of The Year, this spirit-inspiring DVD deserved the accolades. As many live videos of worship celebrations have proven, it takes a whole heap more than simply bringing in a couple of video cameras to such events to make something which stirs the hearts, minds and spirits of people who weren't there when filming took place. But in this instance the Bradford church surpass themselves with a top rate worship band, sonically satisfying sound, great lighting and lots of moody shots of musicians and congregation giving it their all in worship. Half a dozen songs here (including "Take All The Glory", "I Surrender All", "You Never Fail Me" and "Send Me") will raise even the lowest spirits. On a par with anything Hillsong have ever produced, this is a contemporary worship classic.

It was an incredible night as Abundant Life Church recorded their live album 'Send Me'. Thousands gathered to make history as they recorded what many said is their best album to date.
From the first note of the opening song 'Take all the Glory', the place was filled with a deep sense of God's presence.
'Send Me', the title track , is all about a church who desires to go and make a difference in our generation. The prayer for this album is that a send me attitude will become the spirit of God's people everywhere.
This DVD also has a bonus CD of backing tracks.
