We have received a very generous offer from a male voice choir, who will be returning to their home in Loughborough on September 29th after a successful south coast tour. Their conductor is a lifelong Methodist, and wishes to support our on-going fund-raising by presenting their concert in our church at 2pm that afternoon without charging the Church a fee. There will be no tickets sold for this concert, which will be a programme of varied music in two halves of 45 minutes with an interval of 15 minutes. The conductor, Chris Hill, suggests a retiring collection which will help pay for essential repairs to our schoolroom roof. We cannot continue our programme of outreach to the Community unless these repairs are done.
The excellent builders who refurbished other rooms in our premises discovered the disastrous state of this roof when they were finishing the renovations which many of you saw when you visited our church on our Open Morning, May 4th. We are hoping to offer our premises particularly to a Nursery as we used to do, and we cannot use the schoolroom as the roof is in a dangerous state. The church itself is not affected.
We would be very grateful for your support on this occasion and trust the start time will not be too inconvenient for you. We hope to supply some kind of light refreshments during the interval. Thank you again for showing continuing interest in our church, as people still enquire about us and our activities.
