'Although we live in a broken and despairing world, many of us settle for the safety and familiarity of an established lifestyle. We close our eyes and ears to devastation in the lives of people around us, be they family, friends or neighbours. The purpose of Shipwrecks and Islands is not just to provide food for thought, but to offer comfort to those who are broken and a challenge to those who might help but have forgotten that the smallest grains of faith and love can make a world of difference'. Adrian Plass. This album features the same team of writers and musicians as City of Gold. Adrian Plass is the narrator, with lead vocal shared between Mal Pope and Julie Costello.
Storm warning/This dark water; The whisper of the wild wind; Winter waking; Lay down the burden of your heart; When I was small; Holy ground; Surrounded; Shades of blue; Love is stronger than fear; Escaping the island; Light of all lights; Take my life and let it be; It is finished; What Jesus would have done; Let Your light break over the restless sea.

'Considering the huge emotional, spiritual and creative impact of' City of Gold`, it is astonishing that 'Shipwrecks & Islands in every way makes the same impact on the listener. A breathtaking evocation of the Church's need to reach the lost!'
