About

Reconciled: a record by Blueprint Church

NZ$ 6,755

117

We are Blueprint,

an inner-city church in Central Wellington, NZ. Through our weekly services, community initiatives, and live-in missional communities, we seek to bring the message, spirit, and reign of Jesus to the forgotten corners of our city.

We're recording an album 

Reconciled will serve as a snapshot of a special moment in the life of the Blueprint Community, reflecting two important changes for us: Our continuing journey of discovery as a pioneer mission unit in the Anglican Church, and the sending of ten of our most beloved friends to re-plant St Jude’s - a dormant Anglican Church in Lyall Bay.

8 tracks in total, this album captures some of the songs that have arisen from our last few years journeying together, as well as arrangements of liturgical prayer from A New Zealand Prayer Book : He Karakia Mihinare o Aotearoa.

It’s about the reconciliation that Christ brings in every sphere of our lives and our world. Reconciliation between us and God, between old and new, and between peoples in Aotearoa. Reconciled draws from ancient liturgy, scripture, te reo Māori and our unique experience as a community trying to reconcile the broken things in our central Wellington neighbourhood.

How can you help?

We’ve written the songs, we’ve done the practice, and we’re ready to go. Blueprint’s budget has already contributed $3,000 of the total $8,400 we need to fund the project. These costs will include $6,800 for engineering and production, with a further $1,600 to cover printing, postage and crowd-sourcing fees. That means we need $5,400 to make it happen.

Post-release, the album will be available for purchase / streaming on all online platforms, but we are offering some exciting rewards to those who want to help make it happen...

Risks and challenges

Recording will take place over one week in mid-April, inside St Jude's - an old Anglican church in Lyall Bay, Wellington. We're expecting to have the album polished up and to be sending out rewards early in June, with a public release later that month.

Having given this project a lot of thoughtful consideration, we'll be as prepared as ever heading into recording week, hopefully making for a smooth, efficient and enjoyable experience for the 13-person-team involved.

However, as with any creative project, the final stages of post-production can take a while. We're confident we've budgeted enough time for this process, expecting to have mixed and mastered the album, have physical copies made, album booklets fully designed and printed within the timeframe.
