We decided to support The Oasis Centre once again for our September Concert, the first charity in our 2016-2017 series, and a charity working in Gorton, East Manchester -our Mission Committee felt was worthy of our further help. Moving into October, the charity outreach was All We Can, a Methodist arm of missionary outreach and, a most apt opportunity to give support - as we know, Haiti has suffered dreadfully through the Hurricane Matthew and desperately need help. The November Concert was a chance for us to highlight the work of The Boaz Trust, a Christian charity based in Manchester helping those who are refiugees and seeking asylum in Britain, yet are living in destitution and without support or assistance while they wait for their applications to be completed. Now we enter 2017 and the January Concert  provided help to Housing Justice, the national voice of Christian Action on housing and homelessness. (This fitted in well with Homelessness Sunday on 22nd January).

In February the Concert supported Visyon a local charity based in Congelton which provides counselling and support services for young people with mental health issues, such as depression, bullying and suicidal tendencies. 6.3% of clients live in Wilmslow. We turned our attention in March to Barnabus, a charity we have supported in the past in various ways, but which now is finding their work greatly hampered by lack of financial funding.

March Lunchtime Concert - Students from Chethams School of Music entertained an audience of over 100  with a  programme covering flute, cello, violin and voice. They are shown here with their accompanist.

The Concert on 19th April was a programme by Cellist Melanie Jones; turning to the May Concert, Students from the Royal Norther College of Music presented their programme for us - Oliver She, Piano, and Meera Maharaj (flute). And so we come to the final concert of the 2016/17 series on Wednesday, 21st June, when students from Chethams School of Music will bring us to a conclusion with their usual interesting, talented, and exciting performances. The programme is below, and the Charity we shall be supporting this time will be Wilmslow Wells.

Prayer for the day
For those who, as volunteers, work so hard to maintain our building, at times it showing the need for repair and renewal, but who also strive to keep tidy the gardens, the various rooms, the sanctuary, the kitchens, and the pride in their efforts is visible for all to see, and we offer them our thanks.
