Guvna B Comes to SPHS
On Friday 15th November we had the wonderful privilege of welcoming double MOBO award winning urban music star and author Guvna B to our IGNITE event at St. Peter’s RC High school. Guvna B has appeared at the last two Flame conferences, the largest gathering of Catholic youth in the country at Wembley Arena. He has also played many times at the Big Church Day Out and Soul Survivor. Taking a leap of faith our chaplain sent an invitation on social media last March, which was picked up by Guvna B’s booking team and rest, as they say is history! IGNITE follows the pattern of Flame and uses amazing Christian speakers and performers to inspire the faith of young people.
Guvna B was a truly inspirational artist who shared his faith story as part of the performance of his songs. His performance was a wonderful tapestry of high tempo and reflective songs. He took a real interest in the school and of the IGNITE event saying, ‘You have a really good thing going on here!’ Guvna B was also supported by some of our own students, Avygayle Smith and Point Naught, who shared their musical talent and provided amazing inspiration for our younger students to allow their gifts to be used in the community. It was wonderful to see young people from Swindon, Trowbridge and local Christian youth groups joining our young people in praising God through Guvna B’s music.
Guvna B is an inspirational role model for all young people and his book ‘Un-Popular Culture’ has a positive message encouraging young people to be a light and shine wherever they go. Catholic education seeks to educate the whole person, to give young people hope and bring people into community to join together people of all faiths and none. I hope that IGNITE will continue to do this with prayer and much needed financial support.
