Raising and Giving (RAG) '22
God has built something truly special at Nexus ICA; a place for musicians, songwriters, technicians and worship leaders to pursue excellence within a unique, supportive faith based environments.
We are passionate about serving others too, and have a long history of doing so, particularly in our community and the local church.
As a charity, Nexus ICA has always relied on the kindness and generosity of financial donors. We need your support to keep doing what God has called us to do - helping our students realise their potential and come to understand how their new-found knowledge and skill can best be used to further the Kingdom of God.
This year, the funds raised from our RAG events will help us to recover from the significant impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our finances and recruitment. Your support will help to build a sustainable future for Nexus ICA.
In addition, we are also diverting 20% of all funds raised to supporting the refugee crisis in Ukraine.
Take a look at our RAG '22 events below and please support us by donating today.
Weekend Worship Sessions (24th to the 26th of June)
Our students will have just over 24 hours to write, refine, and rehearse a collection of worship songs before filming the set in front of a live audience on the evening of Saturday 25th June. We will continue the work on Sunday 26th as we edit the footage and mix the audio ready to release to the public.
Our students face the challenge of learning and performing the songs to a high standard, but also stepping out of their comfort zones by becoming producers, engineers, videographers, video editors, music transcribers, set designers, and undertaking several other roles over the weekend.
We will use this time to reflect on what God has been saying to us over the past year and throughout the history of our institute . It will be an opportunity for our students to put into practice the skills they have developed in their time here; and for us staff and the wider Nexus ICA community to support their creativity.
Community Outreach Weekend (1st & 2nd of April)
We held our first RAG event - the Community Outreach Weekend - on the 1st and 2nd of April. Students and staff gave up their weekends to volunteer for a number of charities and organisations in and around Coventry, including Betel in Birmingham, Feed the Hungry in Binley, and St Christopher's Church in Allesley.
