Praise be to God

IT WAS TRULY Relentless by name and nature.
Patrons at the Evening of the Arts hosted by New Dimensions Ministries at its Barbarees Hill, St Michael base last Saturday had an evening of non-stop praise and worship that will stay with them for a long time.
Some might even say it was Relentless.
The just over 20 performances in dance, mime, poetry and song spanned two halves and filtered into each other with some narrations in between.
There was a big buzz when the first half came to a climax with an altar call, which was preceded by dance choreography titled Chain Breaker.
As people walked to get refreshment or just assembled in groups, people were comparing notes on what some concluded to be one of the best productions they had attended for a long time.
And they could not wait for the second half to get under way with visiting spoken word artiste Raymond Thomas.
The evening came to an energetic and spiritually moving climax with Glorious, which featured the entire cast of Relentless.
Mouths were buzzing as people made their way from the venue. There were many positive comments of the second half and the production on a whole, but many gave the edge to the acts in the first half.
Marketing coordinator Wayne Alleyne said over 200 artistes, support acts and crew were involved in the production which included acts from sister churches who joined with the groups at New Dimensions to raise funds for a worthy cause.
Alleyne said the production was to raise $20 000 to refurbish the nursery and, based on the response, he felt the target was met.
It was the first time the various groups and ministries worked together for a production and Alleyne said they were hoping to make it an annual event.
