“All are touched by the quality of the performances and the opportunity to be still in a place of prayer. 

They leave feeling better for the experience; some can articulate this as connecting with God, some realise that the music has made a difference to how they are journeying, for others seeds have been sown and all feel refreshed.”

The trust offers churches and church groups a variety of programmes that can be used in outreach. David and Nicola Hooke are available to Seniors Groups during the week, both to provide a musical outreach programme and to give presentations that  raise the profile of,  and support for, the work of the trust.

Some of the themed programmes that are available for Saturday concerts and evening events are listed below for your information. Asaph is always looking to develop new programmes with varied themes and new musical resources so do not view what you see below as the limit of our programming.
