Next Event- 13th October, Cuckfield Baptist Church




An evangelistic event exploring the influence and impact the Christian gospel message had on the development of Jazz. We would love for other churches to take advantage of this exciting event to help them reach their communities with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The evening explores 2 parallel stories, 2 stories that are intertwined in a profound way. The 2 stories are the history of Jazz, particularly the roots of Jazz and also ‘His story’, history itself. The stories are both framed and united by a common theme, the theme of slavery.

“The best evangelistic event I have seen in years!”
