Chris loves to share his songs and message live in a wide variety of situations.
Although his focus has been mostly on ministering to pre-school and primary school aged children as well as families with younger children, he also presents an engaging presentation and inspiring and relevant message for older folk. As an experienced teacher and performer he is very flexible in the type and form of presentation he offers and is always willing to negotiate on what would work best in any particular context.
Chris’ live presentations are always punchy and absorbing and invite plenty of audience involvement.
For a younger group this involves a variety of catchy songs, many with actions or echoed responses, along with interesting and often amusing stories highlighting Biblical truths. With song lyrics and stimulating images on screen kids are kept focused and involved.
For older groups Chris blends a mixture of upbeat and quieter, mellow songs, Bible readings, prayers, stories, and a Gospel focused message into an engrossing and thought provoking presentation. At times, in the absence of a pastor or assisted by the pastor, he leads congregations in their standard Sunday worship services. He is keen to adapt his format to the needs of any particular group, sometimes having a more informal concert style presentation and sometimes loosely following a more traditional liturgical style.
He has also led or been involved with the celebrations at special events such as Advent evenings, carol evenings, camps and holiday programmes.

Chris comments: “Without a doubt the most rewarding and exciting part of my musical life is presenting to a live audience. While it is very great to know that my songs are being played and the message being spread in cars, homes, churches and schools, nothing can beat that personal interaction with people in a live setting. Each and every time I perform for children in particular I am struck by how receptive they are, how much they enjoy a live performance and what a powerful position of influence I am in. What a wonderful opportunity I have to spread the good news through my words and music!”
