Brighton-based worship movement Bright City have released a new single titled 'Not Going Back'. This song is a catchy tune driven by a dynamic rhythmic pattern; it resounds with joy from the truth of what a life touched and transformed by Jesus is like. Just what the world needs to hear in this time of grief and turmoil!
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1
'Not Going Back' started with this Bible verse and a desire for Bright City to write a freedom song. Inspired by baptism services at St Peter’s Brighton, the songwriters gathered with the aim to write a fun, energetic song for this moment. The whole piece hangs off the repeating line ‘I’m not going back,’ almost defiant about the life we’ve left behind, and living the life Jesus has won for us.
"I’m not going back,
Jesus with You my days as a slave are done.
I’m not going back!"
