SOUTHGATE'S GOT MESSY CHURCH
We had our first Messy Church event in October 2018 and were so pleased that many people came along. We're pleased to say that our next Messy Church will be on Friday 25th January, 4.30pm to 6.30pm. There'll be crafts, games, story and a meal. The event is for all ages; children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult. It's all free, so do join us; there's no need to register.
With several decades of song-writing under his belt, and having penned some of the
world’s best known worship songs, Graham Kendrick leads us on a captivating
musical journey, supported by David Fitzgerald (flute and saxophone), Terl Bryant
(percussion) and Simon Dennis (bass). His first album for three years was released
in May with a collection of all new songs: We’ll Keep the Banner Flying High!
Graham says of the title song: “It’s about pushing through weariness or
discouragement, keeping our eyes on Jesus, doing the work he gives us to do and
doing it together.”
Graham Kendrick has been described as the 'father of modern worship music' whose
songs are 'crammed full of poetic, divine, biblical truth' that have 'sculpted a view of
God that has impacted generations. For more than 30 years he has been at the
forefront of Christian music in the UK having written and recorded hundreds of songs, many of which are well known around the world, including: Shine Jesus
Shine, Knowing You, The Servant King, Amazing Love and For This Purpose.
Earlier this year he appeared in a special edition of BBC’s Songs of Praise featuring
contemporary Christian songwriters.
Who is this event for? Of course it is for everybody who loves Graham’s music -but
it is also the kind of event to bring friends who may not feel comfortable in a conventional church service. There will be some to listen to, some to sing along to,
and new ones to do both. Be there! Tickets are £16 (+ £1 booking fee) from The Apex
Box Office, 1 Charter Square, IP33 3FD; 01284 758000; online: www.theapex.co.uk
Presented by Southgate Church as a fundraising event for the local Christian charity, Chaplain in the Workplace
