Michael and the Topsy Turvy Kingdom! 

Deep in the heart of the jungle, Michael and his team are on yet another adventure. Rumour has it that a new King has arrived, and with him a Kingdom that looks so different that it seems back-to-front and upside-down. But where is this kingdom? Will their Bible-map help them find it? Can anyone become part of the Topsy Turvy Kingdom?

With the help of Archibald the Explorer, Dr Von Pomplenickel, Pierre the Chef and Mr Grumpy, Michael will take you on a voyage of discovery that might just change your life.

Join Michael and his raggle-taggle band of explorers as they go on a musical adventure through the gospels to discover... the Topsy Turvy Kingdom!

Michael is co-writing this album with author, speaker and church-planter, Tim Chester.

Why we do it

'How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!' Romans 10:15

There's nothing better than seeing kids engaging with the Bible for themselves. Philip said to Nathanael 'Come and See' (John 1:46) - and that's what we want to help children to do. To come and meet the King of the Topsy Turvy Kingdom for themselves and find out that it really is good news.

Songs are a great way to ebed truth into people's hearts. That's why the Bible tells us to sing! For many kids they may not immediately understand everything that's in a song, but they can grow into the truth. As they grow up we pray that they will have many 'oh - that's what it's about!' moments and that this will guide them through the tricky years ahead, following the map that will lead them home.

Get involved

We're close to finishing the album. The artwork is done, the tracks almost completed. And we're so excited! We hope to have the album out at the start of December, all ready for Christmas. It's packed full of great Bible truths, particularly from the Gospels. 

Now we need to raise the finance to get this thing on to physical CD. It's not cheap! But with your help we can do it.

So if you would like to help us share the music and message of Jesus far and wide, order a copy today. Better still, order 10 copies and give them away as presents!

Thank you

Michael J Tinker

Risks and challenges

If we don't manage to raise the finance, the album will still be released digitally. What it'll mean is we won't have the physical thing to sell and give away.
