Jermaine & Velisha’s Wedding

Jermaine & Velisha’s Wedding

What a Joy to see our firstborn, Velisha Mahalia get Married on May 28th, 2016! We equally welcomed Jermaine Lynch, our son-in-law into our family as we joyfully become a part of the Lynch’s. The blessing is that our family has been friends/family for a good while so it was such an incredible day of celebration with all who joined us on the day. Many travelled from far, North England, Canada to share this day with us.

The day was ‘kissed by heaven’ as the weather forecast predicted rain, but turned out being a day of pure sunshine!  There was not a single hiccup or setback on the day, everything ran smoothly as we all prayed it would! Thank you, Jesus!

Velisha & Jermaine now continue to build their own home in Essex, their Grandfathers would have been so proud of them as we are.

Velveta on Premier Radio – Woman to woman – Evangelism

On 1st November 2016, Velveta joined Maria Rodrigues in Premier Radio studio to chat about Evangelism.

Can you pinpoint a mentor in your life? This being one of the questions, Velveta Thompson encouraged other women with stories and advice on being a good steward of God’s gifting. She also shared about the importance of both being a Godly role model and having Godly role models in your life. The importance of sharing your faith with your neighbours and the way God used her to lead her very sick neighbour to the Lord just before she passed away.

2016 Rugby League Fans Choir

2016 Rugby League Fans Choir

BBC’s Songs of Praise searched for supporters to sing in the Rugby League Challenge Cup Fans’ Choir at Wembley.

A 32-strong choir was selected from supporters representing clubs in this season’s Challenge Cup to sing ‘Abide With Me’ before the final on 27 August 2016.

The judging panel included Songs of Praise presenter Aled Jones and Leeds Rhinos player James Jones-Buchanan.

West End star Connie Fisher and Lizzie Jones – who sang before 2015 final in memory of husband Danny Jones – were also on the panel.

Songs of Praise producer Matthew Napier and the SOP team invited the fans to submit uplifting and unusual stories about supporting their Club and why they think they deserved a place representing their team in the Rugby League Challenge Cup Fans’ Choir. Many amazing stories were submitted.

Beracah Music (Steve Thompson) were commissioned and invited to spend a half day rehearsing and conducting the choir at the finals on the hallowed Wembley grounds.

Steve & Velveta in the Conference room

Velveta & Steve had the privilege of working with the Rugby League Choir, rehearsing, taking pictures, coaching and generally getting them ready to perform ‘Abide with Me’ just before the  Rugby league finals between Hull FC and Warrington Wolves.

The rehearsal started with lunch at 12.30 and straight into vocal warm-up and rehearsal from 1.30pm. From the very first note sung by the choir, Steve noted, ‘It looks like the rehearsals will not be long at all, you sound great …’

After several run-through, the choir then took to the pitch to run through the song and soundcheck all the microphones.

By the time the choir was introduced by games announcer, they were ready to perform and did so with confidence and much emotion.
