What A Night!

On Saturday 4th January 2020, almost 2500 Christians representing over 80 churches and Christian organisations gathered at Bethel Convention Centre to celebrate what God is doing in our region through our togetherness and to imagine what more He might have planned.

It was an incredible night and social media has been buzzing ever since, with pictures, videos and accounts of the night and the impact it had on so many.

Front Page News

The event made front page news on the Express and Star with a fantastic account of the reason we gathered and the impact we hoped it would have moving forwards. If you were there, you may even spot yourself on some of the pictures they took! Check out the full story and all of the images here.

Together 2020 Anthem

During the evening, Chris Eaton and the Together 2020 worship team performed the release of the official Together 2020 Anthem. ‘We Are One (In Your Presence)’, was written by Chris Eaton especially for Together 2020 and has been recorded with the Together 2020 Worship Team. You can listen to the song here.

During the event, we premiered 3 videos that were produced especially for Together 2020, which highlight some of the amazing initiatives taking place as Christians work TOGETHER across the region. These are all available to view now on our YouTube channel. Why not subscribe to our channel so you can be the first to see future videos that we produce?
