Since its release, The UK Blessing music video has gone viral with approaching 3 million views on Youtube.
The video was the brainchild of Tim Hughes, vicar of St. Luke’s church, Gas Street, in the heart of Birmingham. Tim also leads ‘Worship Central’, an international worship training and resource centre. He is a singer/songwriter in his own right, with ‘Here I Am To Worship’, a popular song sung in churches worldwide and which received the ‘Dove Award’.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has written to Tim Hughes to thank him for organising
the video presentation and to award him with the Prime Minister’s daily Points of Light Award, a prize which has been running since 2014 in order to recognise individuals who have had a positive impact on society.
Prime Minister Johnson said: ‘At a time when our churches are closed, I am filled with admiration to hear how you have used the power of music to bring together Christians of all denominations from across our United Kingdom. Your sensational singing masterpiece, The UK Blessing is truly uplifting and has touched millions around the world with its message of hope and beauty.
Over 65 churches and Christian groups from around the UK took part in the making of the video.
