THROUGH THE WATERS is a creative community of musicians, artists and friends who are committed to growing in our lifestyle of worship as we respond to the goodness and love of God supremely demonstrated in Jesus Christ. The name THROUGH THE WATERS is taken from the prophet Ezekiel’s vision (in Ezekiel 47) where he is called to journey deeper and deeper into the river of God until it becomes a river deep enough to swim in. We are passionate about daily going on this journey and encouraging others to do the same.
THROUGH THE WATERS came into existence through leading worship together at a monthly youth event in the town that we all lived in at the time. Since those early days we have had the privilege of leading worship and playing music at various events, festivals and churches across the UK. At the moment members of the THROUGH THE WATERS community are based in London and the South East of England.
Back in 2016 we recorded our first single ‘Reigning Most High’ (read more about the song here). In February 2021 we released a 5 track EP called ‘River’ (listen to River EP here). We pray that these songs encourage all who hear them to continue journeying deeper THROUGH THE WATERS into greater encounter with the living God! As well as releasing new music we are excited about what the future has in store and are committed to growing in our expressions of creativity, community and worship…we would love you to join us on this journey.
We passionately believe that worship is so much more than singing songs and making music and we are excited about expanding the Through The Waters family to include a new project…’RESTORED 3:17‘.
At its heart RESTORED 3:17 is all about restoring and finding the beauty in things – a message right at the core of the gospel! While ‘restored’ speaks for itself, the numbers ‘3:17’ refer to the passage in the Old Testament book of Zephaniah:
The LORD your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.”
“I will remove from you
all who mourn over the loss of your appointed festivals,
which is a burden and reproach for you.
At that time I will deal
with all who oppressed you.
I will rescue the lame;
I will gather the exiles.
I will give them praise and honor
in every land where they have suffered shame.
At that time I will gather you;
at that time I will bring you home.
I will give you honor and praise
among all the peoples of the earth
when I RESTORE your fortunes
before your very eyes,”
says the LORD.
Zephaniah 3:17-20 (NIV)
