All good gifts around us are sent from Heaven above
Then thank the Lord, O thank the Lord
for all his love

It’s refreshing to think of these simple words from a popular 19th century hymn as we are bombarded with all the advertisements for buying at Christmas time. At First church we are delighted to be holding a relaxing concert of some classical Christmas music on Sunday 10 December at 3 pm. This will be an informal concert by the Martinborough Quartet and friends in the style of their successful Winter concert in May. You are warmly invited to join us and enjoy “time out” with some delightful music at this particularly busy time of year.

Beautiful music for Christmas
Corelli, Handel, Vivaldi, Torelli. Played byThe Martinborough String Quartet and friends on Sunday 10 December at 2 pm in the First Church corner Weld and Jellicoe Streets, Martinborough
