Sheep Sheep


All-age Worship Band

‘Out of the ashes we will rise again…

… our one desire, to burn for You’.

Gosforth-based Phoenix Praise rose from the ashes of Waymark Youth Praise Band in September 2014.

Just like Waymark, Phoenix has been privileged to provide contemporary and traditional worship music at many services and celebrations across the churches in Gosforth, Seascale and Drigg, and also at a number of Methodist and ecumenical events in Egremont.

The only difference between Phoenix and Waymark is that Phoenix welcomes singers, musicians and techies of any age, not just ‘youth’! Our underlying aims have always been the same: to have fun making Christian music together and enjoying wide-ranging discussions about life, the universe and everything. 

We continue to meet most Friday evenings in term-time at 7pm in the schoolroom at Gosforth Methodist Church. New members/enquirers of any church affiliation or none are warmly welcomed to join us or ask us for more details before giving us a try (no strings attached!). All you need is an enthusiasm for singing, playing an instrument or providing technical support, and a lively interest in the Christian faith.

The band is run by Keith and Jill Hudson, both experienced teachers and worship leaders. For more information visit (provisional website: awaiting further development!) or email:
