Christchurch had its first Theology on Tap of the year on April 1 with guest Emma Fradd, an Australia-based Catholic singer and songwriter, whose music is currently #14 on the Australian Spotify Top 50.
The Theology on Tap event had 40 attendees crowding into a private section of The Elmwood Trading Company bar. The night started at 7pm with food, drinks and fellowship as people took the time to talk and get to know one another.
At 8pm, Emma started playing some of her music and shared her testimony.
She was raised as a Catholic, became an atheist, but came back to the faith.
She has told other media that many of her lyrics have something to do with God.
Her music was inspiring and captivated the audience members, who has been buzzing but then started listening intently to her.
Emma gave away her CD called The Interior Castle for a donation. Everyone went home with a copy of her CD.
The night ended at 9pm when Emma was thanked for her presence and generosity; she was given a New Zealand T-shirt.
The next Theology on Tap will be in May. Updates can be found on the facebook group Theology on Tap Christchurch.
