Up Close & Personal with Rend Collective

​Hailing from a small coastal town in Northern Ireland, the band Rend Collective describes themselves as more of a family. Their unique approach to worship with a folk music influence clearly resonates with a generation seeking a fresh expression of faith. Go behind the music with Rend Collective on the next This is the Day podcast.

Rend Collective

As a band, Rend Collective, takes a unique approach to worship and their music and believes that 'joy' not 'seriousness' is a spiritual gift. The group includes Gareth Gilkeson (drums), Will Herron (vocals), Chris Llewellyn (vocals), Ali Gilkeson (percussion, keyboard), Bridget Herron (horn, accordian) and Patrick Thompson (bass). Hailing from the small coastal town of Bangor in Northern Ireland, the Collective developed organically, outside of the influence of the music industry and CCM culture, as a self-described “group of confused twenty-somethings trying to figure out faith, life, God and community. Their first studio album Organic Family Hymnal was released September 2010. Their first live album Campfire was released January 2013 with Integrity. Their second live album, Campfire II: Simplicity, was released at the beginning of October 2016.
