Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

ST PETER’S Church will host a mu­sic evening in sup­port of char­ity Chris­tian Aid with pro­fes­sional singer­song­writer Gareth DaviesJones.

The acous­tic folk mu­sic event is on Satur­day, Jan­uary 23, at 7.30pm.

Gareth’s mu­sic has fea­tured on BBC ra­dio and he tours reg­u­larly in the UK and Ire­land.

Chris­tian Aid re­gional co-or­di­na­tor He­len Howe, from Prest­bury, said: “It will give peo­ple a taste of what we can do at the church with our new rooms.

“Some of Gareth’s mu­sic is in­spired by his faith but he has a re­ally broad ap­peal and it will be his first gig in Cheshire. It’s dif­fer­ent to St Peter’s pre­vi­ous events and I’m thrilled to have a mu­si­cian of his qual­ity per­form at my lo­cal church.”

Pro­ceeds will go to Chris­tian Aid. There will be a pho­tog­ra­phy ex­hi­bi­tion ‘I Wit­ness’, fea­tur­ing life-chang­ing projects in Haiti the church has par­tic­i­pated in, pre­sen­ta­tions by char­ity staff and re­fresh­ments. Tick­ets are £5 adults, £3 chil­dren and £15 fam­i­lies from He­len Howe on 01925 582 820 or hhowe@chris­tian-aid.org.
