"The set from Prophecy Gospel Band from the Church of God of Prophecy, Gloucester, was energetic and their voices soared and harmonised."

"Such energy. Such talent. A privilege to be taught by choir director Jordan Anderson and huge generosity of spirit from the choir to welcome a collaborative performance. Unforgettable."
Various other comments:
Dai Woolridge, a renowned poet, who has written pieces for the Welsh Rugby Union. His spoken words were smattered with delightfully funny and warm stories of life.
The Holy Spirit was gushing through Donna Howells from the Warehouse Church, Newport, the radiant compere who passionately shared her love of the Gospels.
How encouraging to have the winning Gospel song composition (Helen Maynard Watts) sung by EAGA and then to see so many from the workshop join EAGA for a rendition of ‘O Happy Day!'
