The Monday Chat Room features the music & ministry of the Chester Deo Gratias Choir

The Monday Chat Room features the work and music of the Chester Deo Gratias Choir and they have two concerts during the month of June during the weekend of the Queen’s official birthday and the concerts will include music with a royal connection.

The programme will include two of Handel’s Coronation anthems, Zadok the Priest and ‘Let thy hand be strengthened’. Also The Hallelujah chorus as which happens to be the Queen’s favourite piece of music. Plus a selection of music featured in various coronation celebrations, ‘I will not leave you comfortless’ by Byrd and Stainer’s ‘Gloria’.

The Bible Society have published a book called ‘The Servant Queen’ and so the choir will be singing an arrangement of ‘The Servant King’. Add to that a selection of music from Bach and Karl Jenkins. They will  have a superb young 17 year old pianist for both concerts, Toby Stanford from Abbeygate College and he will be their guest soloist.

There will be two performances over the weekend at All Saints Church in Hoole, Chester on Sat 11th June and at Elton Church Hall on Sunday June 12th both commencing at 7.30pm.  The Chat Room can be heard on Monday from 13:30 & Tuesday & Friday Summer concert_flyer

BREAKFAST OUT ON THE ROAD & MEETING OUR LISTENERS

Cheryl Fergison

THE BREAKFAST MIX on Thursday was broadcast LIVE from Liverpool City Centre and thank you to Christian Aid and the BIG BREKKIE organised by the MiTE City Centre Chaplains and hosted by Wildwood Kitchen, Church Street, Liverpool. It was a wonderful morning and a privilege for Flame CCR to share in this significant event and raise funds to help the poorest of the poor in Bangladesh. We met so many people, made new friends and enjoyed playing the music to help begin the day in the right way, and we enjoyed the sausage butties cooked to perfection by the Wildwood Kitchen chef. Thank you to actress Cheryl Fergison who called in for breakfast and gave her time to chat to us on the radio. Cheryl played the part of Heather Trott in the long running BBC ONE soap opera EastEnders from 2006 – 2012

A great morning, thank you to everyone for your support and every blessing to everyone involved and for providing an excellent fund raising event and making a difference to peoples lives.
