Celebrating 50 Years
of Scripture in Song with
David and Dale Garratt
The story of Scripture in Song is a NZ story, uniquely NZ. Tiny country produced a little idea that took the world by storm
It’s a story that changed the way people do church right around the globe. It started a revolution in Praise and worship.
David and Dale Garratt and friends wrote easy to sing tunes and words right out of the Bible..scripture in song was born. What if the songs were catchy easy to sing. Guitars and drums were brought into the church. A new time and season began.
God was ready for a change and so was the church.
Now after 30 some albums and song books the Garratt’s are handing on their legacy to a new generation through a series of workshops/tutorials and panel discussions to equip your church, your worship team and your song writers.
On the 29th and 30th of March Christians from around the world gathered at Life Central in Auckland to celebrate 50 years of Scripture in Song.
"David and Dale have made a remarkable contribution to the body of Christ through their music."

“David and Dale are a blessing. I still sing their songs.”

"I Exalt Thee" is the title track of an album being released during the 50th Celebration season.
