Diary

Over the years, Three Humps Music have supported church and community groups in many ways in UK and into Europe...

Some might describe this as the consultancy arm.  THM is simply helping.  Examples range from civic occasions, disability and drugs action to helping organising city-wide conferences and charity fund-raising concerts.  THM actively supports you in equipping and nurturing you and your local Church - as part of your community.

THM's roots are found in leading and authoring worship songs and services.  Whatever your needs, we've been delighted to help; we aim to help you to stand on your own feet.  As well as this loose diary, visit our Contracts and Covenants to see how much we do for free.  This diary sheet lists a few examples going back to our beginnings.
