June 16th

Echo 42 Big Band with Choir

June 23rd Wesley Chapel 7.30pm.

Following the successful Jazz Mass in Ripon Cathedral in 2009 organised by Keith Hawker and featuring music from Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concerts, an extended choir will be repeating some of the items with Big Band Echo 42. This will be part of a concert called “Essentially Ellington” on June 23rd. It is in aid of St Michael’s Hospice and is very much a concert with Keith in mind. As well as organising the service in Ripon, he both sang in St Robert’s Choir and played in Echo 42. The concert will be a very fitting tribute to remember his talents and enthusiasm as well as a contribution to a very worthy cause. Tickets are £8 available at church from Sarah or Kevin Paynes (872651) or Anita Hawker (871283)

Meeting Point – Christ Church, Armley Visit to St Robert’s 31st July 2013

Following our visit when we delivered clothes to Meeting Point in Leeds, we have re-established good links with our mission partners at Christ Church Armley. To further develop our involvement we have invited them to visit us at St Robert’s on 31st July. We are seeking to sponsor them travelling here by train (£10 would cover one adult and one child). There will be envelopes at the rear of church for any donations to go towards this. We aim to host a local walk/afternoon tea/games as a friendly mixed age range gathering. Please contact the office, Chrissy or Jean for further information.
