Headed up by Scottish charity Heartsong Ministries, the initiative was inspired by the desire to give back to the vibrant Scottish music scene whilst offering real opportunities to up and coming artists.
The Engage flagship event is an annual worship night in Aberdeen and Edinburgh, Scotland. Heartsong Ministries intends to lift the lives of people up by providing a platform for liberty in worship where chains of traditions, sickness, problems and inhibitions are broken. Engage has partnered with other charities, which work with less-fortunate people locally and around the world such as Mission Aviation Fellowship, Food for The Hungry, Scottish Bible Society, Compassion and more.
Since the maiden event in 2011, Engage has had the privilege of encountering hundreds of people whose lives have been impacted by the power of God’s Spirit. Privileged to have hosted renowned and emerging gospel artists, and worship ministers such as Philippa Hanna, Muyiwa and Riversongz, Glowreeyah, Bob Fitts, Steph Mcleod, Ian White, Isabella, Allan McKinlay, Chevelle Franklyn, Anna Barton, Toluwanimee, Sophie Hamilton, RANAN, Sam Hibbard, Sola Okunuga, D’Amadeus, Eloho and others, Engage returns to The Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh for another night of exhilarating and inspired music featuring Philippa Hanna, Sola Okunuga, Mojisola, Muyiwa & Riversongz and host Eloho.
