Simon Brading has devoted his life to serving the church. As the worship Pastor at Emmanuel Brighton, he has helped to build a vibrant worship team, drawing in a large family of creatives, worship leaders, songwriters and musicians. He also oversees worship at Newday, a significant Christian festival with 7,000 young people gathering every year.

His passion to train others has led to Worship School UK, an annual national conference to equip worship leaders, musicians and creatives and as a worship leader he has served at different conferences and events in the UK, USA, Australia and mainland Europe.  

His songs include You Reign, Rock of Ages, Alive With Worship and You Never Change. These songs and many more have been primarily recorded through the annual live worship albums from the Newday festival, but are now captured on this debut album from Simon. These are songs which help turn our attention to the Almighty God and the richness of his love and kindness to us in Jesus Christ. 

This new album, Alive With Worship, will serve both for personal enjoyment and Spiritual enrichment as well as providing a gateway into Simon’s rich catalogue of songs which are already being enjoyed by thousands at Newday and in local church contexts across the UK.
