The Glory and the Crown: 18 months on

It's been about 18 months since CCM released it's first EP, The Glory and the Crown, so I was asked to put together a little update on some of the encouragements we've heard about since it's launch...

The vision was simple: we wanted to share some songs written by people at CCM, which we thought would be an encouragement to our church family and others who hear them. We long for the word of Christ to dwell in us richly; we recorded 5 songs which we hoped would help us do that.

Although most of the team involved with the project had been involved in various recording projects before, we'd never attempted anything quite like this. But, spurred on by that vision, we put together the EP over the course of about 6 months. We learned a lot and, even though it isn't perfect, we hope and pray it will serve the church: both CCM and further afield.

In God's kindness, He's taken our efforts and used them for His glory!

The songs from the EP are now being sung around the world. We've received messages from American and Australian churches passing on their thanks for the songs, and saying they're using them regularly. Lots of churches all over the UK are singing them, too.

Some of the songs from The Glory and the Crown have been re-recorded for live albums last year, including the Word Alive 2016 album New Again and The first Co-Mission album, See Him Face to Face.

We also launched a brand new music page on our website, packed with resources to help churches sing the songs; including free sheet music, how-to videos, acoustic demos and devotionals to do with your band, small group of family.

Will you join us in giving thanks to God for all He has done! We want to keep serving the church like this - not building a name for ourselves, but building the kingdom of Jesus and serving His church. Please pray for us!
