Welcome to Melody of the Mind CIC. We are a small Community Interest Company, dedicated to advancing the Christian faith, with a focus on creative and intellectual pursuits, and supporting vulnerable Christians.
What does CIC mean? CIC stands for Community Interest Company: it is a form of Ltd Company in UK law that is kind of a cross between a normal company and a charity. Shareholders and or directors can only take a certain percentage of profit for themselves (about a third) - all the rest of profits must be put back in the business or used to finance the 'purposes' it was set up for. Plus, if the business closes, all assets must be used for the purposes in its constitution.
Our ethos and offerings
Our activities have several strands. One is an e-commerce site dedicated especially, although not exclusively, to selling creative products. It is open to anyone to sell through us, regardless of their own faith position, although we do, naturally, ensure that products sold are consistent with our values.
We can also offer various services relating to the skills of one of the directors of the firm, primarily around chilled out piano music, composition and arranging, worship song-writing and other creative or authorial endeavours, with consulting work on certain theological and human rights issues also an area of work available.
We will use much of the money from our e-commerce and other commercial activities to fund or subsidize our other activities and goals, which include encouraging cross-discipline and cross-cultural collaboration between Christian creatives, developing and producing events and products relating to Christian creativity and intellectual endeavour, and supporting vulnerable Christians (we have particular links to the church in Pakistan).
Chill out to unique live music.
Over and over, people have commented on the incredible beauty and peace of Nathanael's improvisational playing.
He can just sit down and play music made up on the spot, restuarant style music that's a unique style of classical with a seasoning of cool jazz crossover.
If you have an event with a piano that needs chilled music, Melody of the Mind should be your first port of call.
More than music.....
If you are a church or Christian organisation, Melody of the Mind can offer more than just beautiful music. Nathanael is a graduate of one of the worlds top theological colleges, the ancient St Mary's College of St Andrews University. He has authored a number of published and unpublished works, some of them highly praised. He has appeared several times on one of UK's leading Islamic TV stations, as well as winning a competition to guest edit the magazine of Evangelical Alliance, and has been involved in helping persecuted Pakistani Christians. He has spoken at Conferences ranging from Premier Digital Conference in London to Messianic Jewish conferences in Gateshead. He has also spoken or preached at a wide range of churches, both in location and type, from Catholic churches in Lancashire to evangelical churches in London and Lincolnshire, from Messianic Jewish meetings in Tyne and Wear and an Easter day Seventh Day Adventist church in Birmingham to an Anglican church in Northumberland.
In short, you can have beautiful music and thought provoking and challenging talks all in one package!
