We're very excited to have this group of accomplished musicians coming to give a concert on Monday 19 Feb at 7-30pm. Individually acclaimed for their solo and chamber music work, the trio met while members of the BBC Philharmonic and discovered a shared love of the string trio repertoire.

They will be performing the following works:

Sibelius Trio in G minor
Schubert Trio in Bb D 581.

Mozart Divertimento in Eb k 563

Giving Envelopes and Standing Orders

Many of our church members use giving envelopes to help them to give regularly for the ministry of the church. If you currently give by putting cash on the plate or in the one-off white Gift Aid envelopes, you might find it helpful to use envelopes instead. Alternatively, a lot of people now use standing orders to give to church, which is secure and reduces the amount of cash we have to count and bank. In both cases, taxpayers can increase the value of their regular giving by 25% by filling in a single Gift Aid form.
  • If you would like to start using weekly giving envelopes, contact Val Vose via the church office email: mpc@care4free.net
