Many great artists are turning their backs on the stage and bright lights in favour of the more intimate house gig. This is an opportunity to invite your neighbours, friends, and others round for an evening of quality live music in the comfort of your living room.


Due to the fact that it takes place in a home this event is probably best aimed at the people in the immediate neighbourhood, and the friends and personal contacts of the church/group organising the event. This will also help build an atmosphere of familiarity, which will foster good conversations and relationship building.


A house! Preferably one with lots of space and owned by people who are really happy to invite all their neighbours and have people they don’t know come in. Ideally the room will have space for a small performance area and still have standing room for at least 20 people, plus a few chairs for those less able to stand.


This event can be run at a date that fits with your church’s current rhythm of mission, taking into consideration how the event might compliment or clash with your existing church programme. Think about when is right for the people you are inviting. In order to maximise your appeal, choose a time that is not in competition with other events in the community. For this event a week night would be advisable as restaurants are less busy and more able to accommodate such an event. If many people in your community commute to work make sure you give them enough time to get back for the event.


• Represent God’s love through music and through hospitality.
• Christians from the church/churches involved get to meet new people who live or work locally and invite their friends to a high quality event.
• People from the local community are able to experience Christian community and have their perceptions of the Christian faith challenged.


Celebrate the Church’s birthday and highlight its heritage, diversity and positive contributions to society. This idea can be found in more detail on the Share Jesus International website.
