Christian Aid concert: Westborough Methodist Church

A Cappella are holding a concert at Westborough Methodist Church on Saturday 8thDecember at 7:30 pm. The proceeds will all go to Christian Aid’s 2018 Christmas Appeal. Under the musical direction of Ralph Earwicker and with guest soloist Rev Mike Leigh, the group will be singing a varied programme of seasonal songs and carols.

The focus for the Christmas Appeal this year is ‘Peacemakers’. Peace, we know all too well, is broken every day – but it is also being built every day through the tireless work of peacemakers across the world. Funds raised will help bring peace to families affected by violence and conflict all over the world. For example, by supporting the work of Diana Abbas, a psychologist providing counselling at a children’s centre for young Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, children who are scarred by conflict in the homeland they have had to flee.

‘Blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called children of God’, Jesus told his followers. We can all be peacemakers this Christmas, locally in our community and family, and globally by supporting the Christmas Appeal.

Entry to the concert is by ticket (phone Chris Garforth 01723 882159) or donation at the door (suggested minimum £5).
