Together we are bolder, braver and stronger!


KING & COUNTRY just released their powerful video for their brand new song “Together (feat. Kirk Franklin & Tori Kelly)” which brings multiple ethnicities, nationalities, and styles to form one powerful voice and a message all of us need right now.

Filmed in quarantine in the artists’ homes during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, the new music video for “Together” contains video submissions sent in from thousands of fans that remind us that what unites us is ultimately so much stronger than what divides us. “In a time where this virus is not isolated to one people group or country or social class – it has become the great equalizer,” shares Joel and Luke Smallbone. “It is helping us all reconsider this beautiful concept that we all bleed the same blood. And if we are able to unite, and support — be a neighbor to someone, serve someone, reach out to someone – how might those acts of kindness change the scope of our futures, together?”

As winter approaches, we’ll be spending more time indoors. This will increase the risk of coronavirus spreading.

The following reconstructions of everyday environments show why washing hands regularly, wearing a face covering and keeping at least 2m apart is vital in controlling the spread.

Coronavirus can live for more than 24 hours indoors.

You could pick up or pass on the virus by touching a contaminated surface.

Washing your hands with soap and water, or using hand sanitiser, regularly throughout the day will reduce the risk of catching or passing it on.

Coronavirus can be found in tiny droplets coming out of your nose and mouth.

Wearing a face covering over your nose and mouth reduces the spread of droplets carrying the virus. This means if you have it, you’re less likely to pass it on to others.

Larger droplets can land on other people or on surfaces they touch. Spreading the virus through droplets is most likely to happen when you are less than 2m apart.

Smaller droplets called aerosols can stay in the air for some time, especially if there is no ventilation.

So when you are with people not from your household, you must keep at least 2m apart.

The risk of spreading the virus through smaller droplets is much less outdoors, where there is more ventilation.

Wash your hands, cover your face, make space. These are the three most effective ways we can all control the spread of the virus.

Remember if you have any coronavirus symptoms; high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss or change in your sense of taste or smell, get a free test by calling 119 or visiting

Together, we will control the virus and stop the spread.

Don’t forget, Hands, Face, Space.

We’re never lost if we can find each other

We’re never lost if we can find each other

Facebook App

Never Lost illustrates the idea that as humans we are never truly lost as long as we can connect to each other.
Its montage of deserted streets, people finding new ways to connect during social distancing and COVID-19 Facebook posts is set to an extract from a very moving spoken word poem by British poet, Kate Tempest, called People’s Faces that was published last year on Vevo and is underscored by a stark and soulful piano track.

Lyrics to People’s Faces
Was that a pivotal historical moment
We just went stumbling past?
Here we are
Dancing in the rumbling dark
So come a little closer
Give me something to grasp
Give me your beautiful
Crumbling heart
We’re working every dread day that is given us
Feeling like the person people meet
Really isn’t us
Like we’re going to buckle underneath the trouble
Like any minute now
The struggle’s going to finish us
And then we smile at all our friends
Even when I’m weak and I’m breaking
I’ll stand weeping at the train station
‘Cause I can see your faces
There is so much peace to be found in people’s faces

I love people’s faces

What will you remember?

What will you remember?

Children see the world so clearly. The beauty of it. The possibility of it – even in the midst of uncertainty. We have been asking children, from around the world, to tell us what they’ll remember when COVID-19 is over. Truth is, when these uncertain times end, and they will, learning from what our children remember of these times can help us build a world we all deserve.
