Irish worship leader Ms Scott has set a high standard for herself in previous solo recordings, and it's no surprise to find that she continues in this quality vein with her latest release, 'We Still Believe'. Having been greatly challenged, encouraged and blessed by witnessing a release of God's love and power at meetings she led worship at in recent months, Kathryn has a has a fresh passion in her heart for the Lord, as evidenced in a string of upbeat praise anthems near the start of the album. The opening burner, "Let It Come" asks God to unlock all in his heart for us worshipping in his presence, including both physical and emotional healing. "You're Good" bases itself on the eternal benevolence of Creator God, while "I Believe In Jesus" sees Scott turn a classic Vineyard chorus over 20 years old into a potent and wonderfully engaging worship anthem - certainly the best version of this song I've heard. She does a similar thing with Keith Green's "There Is A Redeemer", which works equally well. Indeed, the old and new come together on this disc for two more vintage compositions - both self-penned Vinyeard tunes - are elsewhere to be found. Close friend, Brian Doerksen, with whom she has oft collaborated, duets on a couple of tracks, including "Only By Grace", recently penned by Scott and Tim Hughes. Sensitive to the realities of life in this fallen world, the title cut expresses the pain of living in a world of disappointments while not allowing our hearts to become despondent. This is another competent offering from the Causeway Coast Vineyard songstress.

Product Description

“Where the King is, there is His kingdom and in His presence, there is power. I believe that as we lead worship, we are ushering people into God’s presence and making room for them to encounter God in a powerful way. I also have begun to understand that the Lord is asking me to partner with Him in this process.

We Still Believe chronicles this journey of faith. My deepest prayer is that as people listen to this album, they will feel the presence of the King and move into all that God has for them.”

Kathryn Scott - Portstewart, Northern Ireland
