Bringing hope where there is despair
In mid-November, to coincide with the Whitechapel Mission`s Thanksgiving Service, a CD album of songs, “Mission Songs”, written and performed by Andrew King will be released. All the proceeds from sales of the album will be given to the Mission to help continue its work.
The song material will be primarily Christian-themed but reflective, and all you will hear is Andrew`s voice and guitar. The mercy of God, our tendency to feel isolated when things go wrong, the quiet actions of Christians to put into effect God`s plans in a positive and creative way, these and other themes are explored in a thought-provoking set of songs offered for sale at £8.00.
Andrew`s album also includes songs based on the history of craft working in wood in the Hackney and Whitechapel areas in past years, and the fading and rekindling of human love.
Andrew was seriously ill about three years ago, with a spell of twenty-five days in intensive care, and further hospitalisation which left him with muscle wastage so severe that he was completely unable to support himself, until God`s mercy and a great physiotherapist helped him to recover his mobility during the following six months.
Using some of the Mission`s library of photographs to illustrate the CD cover, the album will be on sale on our website from mid-November.
