John Finlinson’s last prison sentence was a six-year stint at HMP Dartmoor. It turned out to be the most transforming period of his life, writes Marion Welham in the attached article from the ‘East Anglican’ download from here.
Finny was sent to prison at the age of 12 years old and given a total of 11 years to serve throughout his life of crime before finding Christ at 19. He is a talented singer/songwriter and uses his music to carry the message of the hope that is in Christ to those who do not yet know.
THE FINNYMUSIC PROJECT – The band FinnyMusic led by Finny go to prisons and give concerts, lead services, share testimonies and give out “Freedom Packs”. These packs contain practical information and useful contacts as well as copies of the FinnyMusic CD and various testimonial books. Outside of prison FinnyMusic hold fundraising concerts to support this ministry.
WHAT COULD IT MEAN FOR YOU? – If you make contact with us, we can arrange to come to your prison and give a concert/lead a service. Finny’s message is inspiring to all and we are keen to share it …….concerts/testimonies, in and out of prison.
Watch finnys story of where he comes from and how he has survived to tell his tale. It’s from these experiences that finny has been inspired to write songs of hope…with God ALL things are possible!
We go into prisons using our music to carry the message of Christ. Its in such places that His freedom breaks through the most! ‘The darker the night, the brighter The Light’.
One of our tracks was played on UCB Radio.
Great to meet some powerfull people in God! Always a breath of fresh air – you guys are awesome!
