About SONW

Sounds of New Wine is the Music ministry of New Wine Church, London, England.

Sounds of New Wine is the Music ministry of New Wine Church, London, England. The team comprises 135 gifted and anointed singers, musicians, engineers and stage managers, who are all committed to embracing an ever closer walk with God in their own lives and are passionate about music and its intrinsic power to uplift, encourage, inspire and bring people into greater levels of worship and intimacy with God.

As a ministry that has been growing over 25 years since the founding of their home Church, the New Wine Choir has shared the stage with some of the greatest names in gospel music in the United Kingdom and globally. These include Israel Houghton, Nathaniel Bassey, Martha Munizzi, Mary Mary, Muyiwa Riversongz, Ron Kenoly, Micah Stampley and Mark Beswick among others.

Sounds of New Wine is led by its Creative Director, Lawrence Johnson, co-founder of the famous London Community Gospel Choir (LCGC) and founder of 90’s mainstream chart-topping groups such as Nu-Colours and Truce. Lawrence has worked closely with global music icons such as Stevie Wonder, Sir Paul McCartney, Tina Turner, Tori Kelly and with Simon Cowell as the vocal arranger on X-Factor and still does vocal arrangements for music stars such as Sam Smith.

Sounds of New Wine delivers a beautiful fusion of melodies that combine contemporary hip-hop, afro beats, reggae and soulful music that share resonant messages of hope, inspiration, joy and God’s unfailing love with the listener.

Our ardent desire is simply that those who hear our music will experience a fresh, delightful presence of God in each song and be enriched in their spirit and souls to propel them into the fullness of God’s loving purpose for their lives.


Serving People

Sounds of New Wine have a passion for the transformation of lives. Not only through the power of the music that we lovingly share with the world but also in practical demonstration of God’s love to those who are underprivileged or marginalized by society.

To this end, part of the proceeds from the sales of our music singles and albums will go towards supporting humanitarian projects that our home Church, New Wine Church are undertaking.

These include:

  • Shalom Nagar – Chennai, India:

A residential estate built by New Wine Church that accommodates 55 lepers and their families, giving them a safe living environment, empowering them to lead more productive lives and providing them with a sense of dignity.


  • Fakulteta Neighbourhood – Sofia, Bulgaria:

This is a community of the Roma people (aka gypsies) in Sofia that suffers exceedingly high level of poverty, deprivation, lack of access to quality education or career opportunities. New Wine is committed to bringing renewed hope and uplifting to the people through a number of initiatives that support economic, educational and social empowerment.

Thank you for joining us in transforming these lives through your purchase of our music and support for our ministry. We honour and celebrate you for helping to make a difference in our world!
