Gallagher is worship leader at St Luke's in Maidstone and her songs have been used extensively at the annual Detling 'Revival Fire' conference held in Kent. This offering (11 tracks providing 60 minutes of music) is a mixture of studio (six) and live (five) recordings. All of tracks are written by Gallagher either alone or in collaboration with her husband, Matt, and are acoustic or simple-piano in style and worshipful in content. There are few original insights or stunning revelations among the lyrics, but rather a solid collection of the type of prayerful and praising statements the majority of conference-attending Christians will be familiar with. The live tracks have generally more life and passion about them than those recorded in the studio and probably show Gallagher at her best and most effective.
