Sing Out Loud – Christmas Concert for Food – Thursday 4th December 2014
Sing Out Loud (the popular Chelmsford singing group for men and women of all ages and abilities), has been meeting at Grove Road Evangelical Church (GREC), for around four of the six years, since it started in November 2008.
Several members of Sing Out Loud, volunteer with the Chelmsford Foodbank, which is also a favourite charity of GREC, itself. So, it seems an excellent, way of giving something back, for Sing Out Loud to offer a different kind of Open House, this year, and invite Grove Road Evangelical Church to participate, alongside them.
This will take the form of a Concert, on Thursday 4th December 2014 (7.00 pm, for a prompt 7.30 pm start – 9.30 pm), in aid of the Chelmsford Foodbank. The Concert will include both seasonal and other songs, from the wider repertoire of Sing Out Loud. As usual at a Sing Out Loud event, there will be chance for everyone to join in with some of the songs.
The way it works, is that each member of the audience will be asked to bring along a donation, for the Foodbank, of, maybe, two or three items, from the following list:
- Non-perishable goods (though please NO baked beans or pasta which are usually OVER-subscribed)
- Toiletries (for adults, children, and babies)
- Some small Seasonal items, such as individual Christmas puddings, a packet of shortbread, or chocolate biscuits, etc. These will be placed into the gift boxes prepared at this time of year
Sing Out Loud, in conjunction with Pastor, Mark Parrott, will open its doors to the congregation of Grove Road Evangelical Church, other Chelmsford Churches, plus members of the general public who are interested in either hearing Sing Out Loud (and joining in some of the singing, with them), OR, in supporting the work of the Foodbank, by coming along for an entertaining evening, whilst at the same time, helping the lives of those who are severely struggling to make ends meet.
Grove Road Evangelical Church will be found at: Grove Road, Chelmsford, Essex, CM2 0EY
