Keep the Light Shining!

Why we need your help

Help us to keep shining God’s light in dark corners and give your support to our work in schools, communities and churches, throughout Bradford and beyond.

November is our month of fundraising – seeking to shore up our finances so we can continue our work, using music and the arts to spread joy and love through assemblies, lessons, and creative events that are accessible to all. Covid-19 has led to a drop of over 8% in our income. While that doesn't sound a lot, over the year, it is a loss of nearly £8000. 

On Sunday 6 December, we’re going to shine some light in the winter darkness, after a month of COVID lockdown, with December Fest – an online festival of music and spoken word, to draw people together in a glorious celebration of creativity.

The line-up includes:

Musicians Garth Hewitt, Froud & Daughter, Steven Heath, John Biglands, Motif, Wovenchord, Chris Gates, Gary Borrows, Carol Barwick and the Raise Your Voice Choir, the Great Yorkshire Chorus, and the Mussanzi Family Choir

Poets Stewart Henderson and Conrad Burdekin; comedian Tony Vino; storytellers Julie Wilkinson, Amy Harris, Jon Buckeridge of Parable Arts, and Hilary Bond; circus performer Daryll Hackett; and visual artist Katie Jones.

Where: Sunday 6 December on the Zephaniah YouTube Channel – youtube.com/zephstoryteller – direct to your front room – for more than 6 hours of music and spoken word

Each of the artists involved is donating their time to raise funds for our work – a huge thank you to them!

We’d love you to join us in this celebration of light, hope, joy and creativity; and of our ongoing work at Zephaniah. Help us to keep the light shining – make a donation below.

See you at the festival!
