Concert a big success 

JOY TO THE WORLD 2019B

Joy to the World, the concert organised by St Andrew's and Cliff Park Community Churches Gorleston with the Norfolk Fellowship Brass of the Salvation Army, proved a big success on Tuesday evening with around 150 attending and over £1,000 raised for the Identity Youth Project and The Salvation Army. Despite heavy rain many people braved the weather to attend an evening which was both a celebration and worship.  Photo, courtesy of Brian Philpott, shows David Woodrow conducting the Norfolk Fellowship Brass

A bucket collection and sale of interval refreshments or organised by Gillian and Brian Philpot helped to

Organisers Janet Bowden and Tony Mallion said they were thrilled with the support for the evening. "We really felt the weather might deter people but it didn't do so at all and we're so grateful on a cold night and a busy time for everyone that so many came" said Janet
