Concert for Tearfund – Sat. 3 February

At 7.00pm – URC Park Green Macclesfield

One of the young people in the URC, Julia, has been selected to travel to South Africa in June, and work for three months on Tearfund Projects. She has to raise £800 towards the projects (not her travel or subsistence, that is coming from other funds) where she will be making a difference. Julia has worked very hard to pull this fundraising concert together. Please support her. Download a poster here

Concert at St Peter’s Prestbury – Sat 23 Jan 2016

Helen Howe (Regional Co-ordinator for Christian Aid writes:

Dear All,

I wondered if you would highlight this upcoming event with your congregation (poster attached)?  Gareth Davies-Jones is an amazing musician who is on the brink of launching a fulltime professional career – he appeared on Songs of Praise in the autumn and has just recorded another piece for them for later this year.  The concert is a week on Saturday (January 23) at St Peter’s.

This is the link to the facebook event and you can see some examples of his music on here too – beautiful acoustic set.

You don’t need to buy tickets in advance but if people could confirm numbers that would help us organise the logistics!  Confirm attendance either by emailing me or by signing up on facebook.  Feel free to forward if you can think of anyone else who might be interested.

Thanks again for all your support,
