We are a five piece worship band and we regularly lead worship at our home church, Trent Vineyard (Nottingham). Our desire is to write relevant accessible songs that sing about and to our God.
One thing that really stood out to us while we were putting together our last album was this comment from Simon Ponsonby (Pastor of Theology, St Aldates Oxford), paraphrasing slightly. "'The thing I love about your songs is that you've definitely got both feet in the church but both hands reaching outside." This is the aim of what Trent are trying to do, and put far better than we ever could have. We want to be standing firmly on the rock, firmly expressing the church and all her values and everything but having our hands reaching out, using lyrics and music that actually makes sense out in the world.
We aren't very good at blowing out own trumpet so to speak; so here are a few things other people have said about us...
Worship Leader Magazine said
"From the first track of Unfailing Love to the last, the energy and dynamic of this project does not diminish but stays with you throughout. Trent creates beautiful & organic landscapes on each track that contain musical shades of Snow Patrol and U2..and then there are the lyrics! These songs pick you up and carry you into the Lord's Presence and transport the listener to a place of worship. As the title track extols, "Unfailing Love / You never let us down / Your promise is alive / When colored dreams fade to gray / When the night crowds the day / When there's no words left to say / God's love remains." The lyrics are simple and yet profound at the same time."

Sounds like classic Vineyard worship mixed with the indie-rock flair of The Violet Burning, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol, and The Futureheads. At a glance not the sort of Vineyard album most would expect, Unfailing Love is still an effective worship record that's both alternative and devotional.
