Urban Sound For The Heavenly City?

A recurring conversation around London church youthworkers is about finding worship materials/music/resources that connect with urban young people. Some do connect with the Soul Surivor/Hillsong United style stuff, others respond to Noel Robinson & gospely influenced stuff, and interactive elements from the alt.worship/chill out scene work too, but there seems to be a gap.

A few years ago I heard some guys strip down some tracks, end up with some beats and sing worship over the top, which was cool. But I come across very few of these experiments. Where are those using hip-hop, r’n’b, grime, beats for corporate worship? Where is the urban sound fit for the heavenly city?

If you have an answer to that question, why not head over to Pete’s blog and leave a comment?
