    Building Christlike Church Communities through Music, on Music and the Church with Sarah Bereza, Ep. 57

    Building Christlike Church Communities through Music, on Music and the Church with Sarah Bereza, Ep. 57

    I am so delighted to be talking with author Andy Thomas about his new book Resounding Body: Building Christlike Church Communities through Music. So often we think that a great church music program must be heavy on financial resources, but he "encourages music leaders to step up and persevere in low-resource contexts, and challenges all those who lead music in worship to refocus on building communities, not just on producing musical results." It's a lovely conversation, and I hope you listen in.























    About Andy Thomas: Andy Thomas is an organist, pianist and choir director with over 25 years' experience of reinvigorating music in churches from different Christian traditions in the UK and overseas







    Purchase Resounding Body: You can purchase a copy of Resounding Body: Building Christlike Church Communities through Music through your local bookstore, or online in places like Bookshop and Amazon.
