Event Details

Bart was born with a rare physical disability called Arthrogryposis which means that he has weak muscles and stiff joints. Doctors said he would never walk and may not ever have the strength to be able to sit up independently, and he would have a bleak outlook to life.
Bart was brought up in a Christian family and he made the decision to become a Christian himself when he was 5 years old. At a very young age, the Pastor of his church prophesied to his parents saying, “Little by little he will be able to do more and more new things that will amaze people.” The Pastor prayed for two things specifically:-
That Bart would one day be able to physically walk down the aisle of the church.
That Bart would be able to play the organ like his father (his father played the organ regularly at church).
Bart started to walk when he was 3 years old and, since then, has been able to take part in many different activities at varying levels of ability including running, football, table tennis and swimming, including the opportunity to take part in three open water swims to date.
At the age of 5, Bart wanted to learn how to play the piano. Doctors said it would never happen, however, Bart gradually progressed and passed his Grade 5 piano exam at 11yrs old, and aged 19yrs moved away from home to Nexus Academy of Music Ministry in Coventry.
Bart is now 34 years old and he lives a relatively independent and normal life. He plays piano every week at Hope Church, Malmesbury.
