North West Durham Methodist Circuit

Deepening Discipleship Making More Disciples

Good News Choir

I am always amazed (and I know I shouldn’t be!) at the wonderful outcomes from every event where the Good News Choir performs. We have no bank account and so each love donation is immediately passed on to the relevant charity with no promise that the amount will be huge…but it always is!!!

This past year has seen us at a Methodist Church in Durham, an afternoon and evening meeting of Gospel Fellowship at Burnopfield, as well as our Christmas and Lenten programmes given in Consett Methodist Church where we are hosted for rehearsals. Perhaps, for me, the most wonderful evening was the concert in aid of the Henry Dancer Days where Henry’s mother gave a moving presentation about the work done in the North East which links in with the CLIC Foundation for children’s cancers. The financial response was way beyond our expectations and another evening of praise and anointing was witnessed.

I am so grateful to all who take part in singing, speaking and playing in the band as the atmosphere in rehearsals alone is so wonderful.
Rehearsals are every Thursday at 7pm and more songsters will always be made welcome, as we have fun and fellowship sharing our faith and love. The choir has no auditions and no restriction on church membership. Thanks to everyone who supports us in prayer and attending events.
