Kevin has researched the 1904 Revival and 20th Century evangelism in Wales. He is a popular preacher in churches and conferences both in Wales and other countries and he is now involved in the celebration of the 1904 revival. He tells us how Evan Roberts, an ex-miner, was successful at bringing in converts and how he rocked the conservative chapels of Wales to their foundations.1904 Revival Website

Mal also tells the story of the Welsh Revival.
PASTOR RAY BEVAN
Ray Bevan is someone who is following in the footsteps of Evan Roberts. He is the leader at King’s Church in the old docklands area of Newport. When he first arrived at King’s 20 years ago, there were around 30 members. The church is now thriving with over 700 regular worshippers.King's Church
He tells his story of how he became to be a “popstar” in the 60s … and even had a record released by Decca in 1966 called “This Little Bird” – recorded with his brother Robbie. He almost went on to sign a contract with producer, Mickey Most .… but then began to ask questions about what he was doing and why am I here. He decided he didn’t want to carry on with his band and continued to search for answers to life's big questions. He went to see a film called “The Greatest Story Ever Told' and he was captivated. He believed that the Holy Spirit began to make Jesus very real to him. Profoundly affected by the message of the film he decided to visit a church .. and the rest is history.
He is also successful recording artist - please visit the King’s Church website below for information of CDs.
DAVE & FAYE EDWARDS
They say it was the Holy Spirit that inspired them to do something practical for others in the town of Newport. Their food parcel provision or “Jesus Cares” is a practical demonstration of God’s love in their community. In partnership with external organisations and with their amazing congregation at King’s Church, they want to show God’s love in practical ways and to the people who need it most.

In 2003 he started to think about the centenary of the 1904 Welsh Revival and the more he read around the subject the more he became convinced that the story could be the basis of a concept album and also a piece of musical theatre for the stage. Mal went on to write Amazing Grace.
The central character was Evan Roberts who claimed to have spoken face to face with God in his bedroom in Loughor, Swansea, and believed he had personally been commissioned by God to lead a worldwide revival. Over an 18 month period between 1904-05, Roberts turned Wales upside down, with the religious fervour he created.
The story of the Revival is told through the eyes of journalist and peace campaigner W T Stead who visited Wales during the height of the Revival to interview Evan Roberts.
Beverley Trotman came to the public’s attention in 2007 as the teacher who entered The X Factor to inspire her pupils. Since then, she has toured with a production of Fame and led worship at Spring Harvest. Beverley’s debut “Voice of Hope” is an album of gospel praise. The title track is written by Lara Martin and it came out of 9/11. There was so much panic going on and she said “You know, God is the only one who has a voice of hope”.Beverley Trotman Website
