The UK Dance Blessing is now ready to share with you. The video will premiere on YouTube at 8pm on Friday 5th June. Click on this link and set a reminder for yourselves - https://youtu.be/Wif5TUr5xdw

Alongside the video we have created an ebook of testimonies from the dancers involved, we pray it will impact you just as much as the video, as people share their journey of praying a blessing over our nation. You can get your own copy of the testimony book here - https://ucgrace.co.uk/Blog/the-uk-dance-blessing-is-released/

The Vision:
To dance to the song The Blessing by The UK Blessing (original Kari Jobe) using this version – https://youtu.be/PUtll3mNj5U

Gathering the videos together we will compile it into video for everyone to share across social media and their networks. We want it to be an opportunity to display the vast ability of dancers, their heart to worship Jesus and share their faith through dance and movement. During covid 19 lockdown, dance places, workshops and performances may have been shut down, but a dancing army have continued to move in their homes and outdoor spaces as they feel led. Dance impacts more than we know and this presents a fantastic opportunity for many to gather and move for our God.
