DEAN'S FAREWELL MESSAGE...

Gospel music has something more than just technical ability and great grooves, it has an energy and spark that I know no other genre to have. It has been my privilege to help demonstrate those same qualities over the last five years with Gospel Central. I've made some incredible friends, enjoyed sharing the stage with some outstanding musicians and singers and had the most fun hosting, singing and producing our shows. Credit must go to founder, Colin Peters whose vision has become a reality. I can't wait to see Gospel Central continue to push on bringing you the best night out every month in Birmingham!

 

GXMMA UK AWARD WINNERS...

2016 saw Gospel Central pick up their first awards, 'Event of the Year' and a special award was presented to Beresford Dawkins for his contribution to the gospel music scene.

Beresford works endlessly in the background for Gospel Central, keeping the wheels turning and the connections happening. Under his guidance Gospel Central has gone from strength to strength.

Beresford Dawkins was born in Birmingham England in 1960.

Growing up in the Lozells Handsworth and Aston districts presented many challenges, but his parents Eustace and Iciline Dawkins who travelled to England from Jamaica in 1955 encouraged him to commit his life to faith in God. Beresford soon found refuge at his local Pentecostal Church in Erdington and Nechells (Church of God of Prophecy) where he developed a passion and love for music.

He began playing the guitar at the age of 12 and after years of hard work became an accomplished musician and music director in his local church.

In 1992 Beresford and associates founded ‘The Well’ which was a live monthly gospel event which included music production, promotion, and marketing, artist development and artist management.

After 24 years in gospel music promotions Beresford’s vision is to develop an infrastructure that will see Birmingham become the Capital of Gospel music for the UK.

Beresford gives credit, to his parents’ generation who have laid the foundation and legacy for us to build on this rich heritage, gifted to Birmingham.

Now partnering with Colin Peters and the Gospel Central family Beresford is seen here accepting an award from GXMMA UK for his contribution and services to Gospel Music over 24 years.

Noval Smith, New Musical Director for Gospel Central
 
'I'm very excited to take on the new role of musical director for Gospel Central. There will be some great projects happening over the next few months, so come down to the jamhouse and be a part of our amazing journey.'
 
 
 

 
GOSPEL CENTRAL singer Sally Haines talks about the beginnings of the GC family...
 
Diversity | Creativity | Family | Excellence
 
GOSPEL CENTRAL is the brainchild of Musical Director Colin Peters. Colin had discussed the idea with myself at one of Noval Smith’s piano seminars, as I was keen to work with other vocalists doing harmonies. A year went by, and I thought I must give Colin a call regarding some music business and I asked if he’d thought anymore about the gospel idea. He said, yes I’m working on it, I called again...same answer...and then one day I got the call to the first GOSPEL CENTRAL rehearsal.
 
Diversity is an essential ingredient of GOSPEL CENTRAL, Colin chose the ensemble from people whom he had worked with or knew of, whose spirit he believed was strong, loving, and above all good, and not necessarily from a church background.
 
The first rehearsal meeting was fantastic, I remember standing in the room feeling so blessed to be surrounded by such wonderfully creative and gifted musicians and singers. We all strived for excellence, for ourselves, for each other, and for the glory of God. Every meeting our bond became stronger and we became a family very quickly.
 
Colin had a very good relationship with John Bunce, the Manager at the Jamhouse Birmingham, and John was keen to let GOSPEL CENTRAL perform at his venue. John’s enthusiasm for the GC family was integral to GOSPEL CENTRAL’S continued success and we are now in our fourth year, performing at the Jamhouse once a month. You could say the Jamhouse has become our spiritual home.
 

GOSPEL CENTRAL is for everyone to share, enjoy, and above all to be part of. I am blessed to feel the love GC has brought into my life.”
