The Watermead Apostolate began as an apostolate to share the original music being composed in the parish of St Theresa’s Birstall.

When the hymn “Our Song Gives Praise” was accepted for publication more compositions were encouraged and, as the hymns and mass settings came, it was decided to explore publishing our own music.  After many planning meetings, a loan from the parish finance committee was secured and Watermead Music Publishing began.

The original objective was to provide only the sheet music as individual sheets and housed in folders.  We then decided to make a demonstration cassette as an aid to church choirs who may like to use our music. This was of a selection of hymns and mass settings seen within the celebration of the Eucharist. The recording was made live in the church on a reel-to-reel tape recorder and through two microphones.

We share our music in various ways - as recordings and as sheet music

Heavens Road fm plays our Watermead Music recordings.

This internet radio station was launched in November 2013, the brainchild of Gerry Coates a Catholic singer/songwriter, who launched the original Heart Gives Unto Heart Catholic Radio for the Papal visit in 2010.  We had provided our recordings for the original radio station, along with our Easter reflection programme, and we hope to continue providing programmes and meditations - click on the logo to find out more.
