On the 11th August we held our annual BBQ and Concert.

We worked closely with The Music Group (our drama group) to produce a nice of entertainment and good food.

The event started at 4pm with a delicious BBQ and plenty of healthy sides from salads to rich pasta’s and rice dishes. These sides were kindly donated by performers and church members. The rained stayed away, God was with us! Soon the line was long with hungry attendees and everyone was outside enjoying their dinner. Friends were catching up; families were playing games; and music was playing. The kitchen was filled with hot tea and coffee; and the smell of sizzling onions and hot dogs filled the air!

Time for the show

Everyone tucking in!

Before we knew it, it was time for the concert. Everyone was called into the church, where we had set out a casual layout of tables and chairs. Families and friends sat together with glasses of coke and chilled fruit cider ready for the performance. The church was full, people were stood up at the back!

The show was a wonderful array of songs and acts and including things such as:

-Spamalot

-Sister Act

-Disney

-Only Fools and Horses

-Guys and Dolls

and of course..MEN IN TIGHTS! That went down a storm!

We even had special guest: Glenn Fildes, who kindly sang some beautiful numbers.

“The atmosphere amongst your group is delightful and it is lovely the way you use everyone’s talents so effectively.”

Special Thanks
