Many Messy Churches have discovered how good songs from Fischy Music can be. 

Stephen Fischbacher and his team work in schools in Scotland and many of us use his songs, such as Welcome Everybody and May you find peace in our messy celebrations.

If you'd like them to be considered for a Messy CD, do send them my way, either as an MP3 file or on CD or paper to BRF, 15 The Chambers, Vineyard, Abingdon, Oxon OX14 3FE.
