We want to release this album for free as a gift to the wider Church, but we need your help!  

Since Eucharist Church began gathering almost five years ago, we have been exploring what it means to worship together using music. We started by re-imagining classic hymns and borrowing songs from sister churches, but we quickly realized that God was moving us to create songs together. Soon enough, that's exactly what we were doing.

Members of our community began writing songs that were reflective of the journey we were on. These songs spoke to a wide variety of experiences: songs of hope and songs of loss, songs of joy and songs of suffering, songs of doubt and songs of commitment. 

It was immediately obvious that God was moving in our little church, but it wasn't until we started uploading rough recordings of our services online that we realized how deeply resonant this music was. Thousands of guests began downloading and streaming the music. Individuals and communities began asking, "Will you ever release this music as a collection of songs? Will we see an album someday?

We believe the church needs music that speaks to the full range of human emotions, that captures the spirit of local communities, and that reflects the goodness of God in the mess of a real world. We believe the church needs music that gathers us at the table - a place where we are reconciled to God and to one another. 

This album is our attempt at sharing that music! 

We want to release this album for free as a gift to the Church. We want to help inspire other congregations to sing together! But again, we need your help! 

Recording, mixing, and producing an album is not cheap. We have had over twenty collaborators from Eucharist on this project, and all of them are willing to volunteer their gifts, but to finish the album we have to lean into gifting outside of our community. We have had to pay for recording and will have to pay for the final mixing, mastering, and physical printing. While we are happy to donate our own gifts, we want to value the skills and craft of those outside of our community by paying them a fair wage. With your help we will be able to pay for the rest of this project and release this album as a gift to the church! 

Check out the rewards and incentives on the right and please partner with us to create something awesome!

Also if anyone who wants to receive more than one reward, (ie, multiple copies of the CD or artbook - hint, they make great Birthday or Christmas gifts!), you need to click on 'Back this Project', and type in the amount that corresponds to the rewards you've added up, (ie, 2 CD's and 2 artbook = $200), and then send us a message using the 'contact us' button on the main page so we know which rewards to send to you!

Risks and challenges

We have already completed recording and have a first mix of the album, (which sounds pretty awesome if we do say so ourselves!)

Next Steps:

What we need to do next is evaluate the rough mix, prepare a final mix, send the songs off for mastering, and get to work on the art book and eventually the physical printing of the album.

This is the cost breakdown:

$3200 - recording
$1900 - mixing
$1250 - mastering
$500 - production fees
$450 - physical printing of CD’s and Artwork
$450 - campaign fees and applicable taxes
Total: $7750
