“Sunshine Corner, oh it’s very fine”
“I used to sing this at Sunday school around 1963. It was held in the officers mess in a rural area of East Yorkshire where my father worked at the young offenders Borstal.
This little tune has stayed with me all my life and I have such happy memories of attending this Sunday school.
I would go as far as saying that these happy memories are what brought me back to attending church again as an adult.”

“Our God is a Great Big God”
“I find it very hard to choose a favourite children’s song as I love so many of them. However, one of my favourites is Our God is a Great Big God by Jo and Nigel Hemming. I love this song because it reminds us of how big, amazing, awesome and wonderful our God is. It also reminds us how he has a plan for our lives. This was also a song that the children loved dancing to at our Messy church celebrations at Hampton Wick Baptist Church. I love the reminder too that he holds us in his hands.“

Great, Great Brill Brill
“I like this song because of its impact on a group of inner-city kids we were working with about 20 years ago. To see them singing how great it was to have a friend like Jesus and doing the actions will always stay with me.” – Harry
