Concert a success
The concert held today in St. Andrew's Church where Christian Garrick on Violin and Brian Kellock on Piano was very successful. A packed audience of nearly 100 people of all ages attended, and enjoyed a variety of Jazz music from both players, who are exceptional musicians..
At the end of the concert most people came through to the hall and socialised over a cup of tea/coffee and shortbread.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music and appreciated the acoustics in the Church.
Many thanks to Christian and Brian and also Peter Dreghorn, who organised the concert and to all who helped to make this a successful event.
We look forward to welcoming other musical performers in the future.

WELCOMING YOU HOME
To all who are weary and seek rest; to all who mourn and long for comfort;
to all who struggle and desire victory; to all who sin and need a saviour;
to all who are idle and look for service; to all who are strangers and want fellowship;
to all who hunger and thirst after righteousness; and to whomsoever will come;
our church has opened wide the doors and, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, says to you...
