Already credited with so many fresh initiatives including the UK Christian Chart, astepfwd.com will host its first Live Fundraising Concert this Christmas on the 17th of December, at Regent Hall Salvation Army Centre near Oxford Circus, in the heart of London.
In true ‘Band-Aid’ style, Christmas LIVE will see a plethora of artists lending their creative skills to astepfwd.com and the UK Christian Chart which will no doubt raise much needed funds to further develop the work that has so far been propelled only by volunteers.

This will be the first time Top 10 acts from the UK Christian Chart will be meeting up to perform and marks a very exciting addition to the progressive and creative vision Step FWD has now become well known for.
From London to Birmingham to Manchester to Scotland, the acts are from across the UK and in line with Step FWD’s founder O’Neil Dennis’ ongoing efforts to be less London-centric ensuring a more balanced and fairer representation via the Step FWD platform.
