Brilliant Musical Evening in support of Refugee work of Brighton Housing Trust (BHT)

Over £280 was raised at the November 2015 Musical Evening. The money was raised in support of Brighton Housing Trust’s refugee work. Andy Winter CEO writes: “on behalf of Kate Jessop and all at the Immigration Legal Service … thank you for your incredible generoisty at the musical evening – which I really enjoyed”.

Contributions reflected the cross generational family nature of the church. Some jazz from senior member Colleen Moss, something from the “Jungle Book” by Argie Benwell and Corinne Lamb (aka “Lambargie”) taking in Johnny Cash’s “Aint no grave can hold my body down” and the Beatles en route.

Thanks to all who helped organise, set up and run the event. We thank God for the many gifts of musical and other talent – but it is not about excellence so much as making a contribution.

The hall was packed and the atmosphere was “full of good energy” as one visitor put it – we had certainly prayed for Christ’s presence to be there.
