HIGHLIGHTS – ‘BRAVE FOLK” (a Farnham Maltings production)

Saturday 3rd March
Parish Hall at 7:30 pm (doors open at 7:00)
There will be a bar.

On Saturday 3rd March, Amble Parish Hall welcomes audiences to an evening of story and song from the lands of the far, far north. Brave Folk is a mystical Nordic tale fizzing with humour and suspense about love and courage and knowing when to act.

Welcome to the marshlands. A place where you can tell a person by the sound of their squelch.  Yorgjin Oxo is a carefree young man and an unlikely hero who has been taught the sounds of storms and how to sing into the rain, until one day the next village disappears and everything changes.

Performed by a company of 5 actors, Brave Folk tells of a place quite unlike our own, and of soggy nights, brave mice, larger than life characters, and the joys of being alive. The show is written by Thomas Crowe and directed by Gavin Stride who says “We want this to feel less like a play and more like an event. Like you have spent the evening in the company of friends”. 

Surrey based, Farnham Maltings are favourites on the rural touring networks and have previously partnered with Highlights Rural Touring Scheme to bring Northumberland audiences ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’, ‘The Iranian Feast’ and many other great shows.  The company has a well-earned reputation as creators of engaging theatre especially created for non-theatre spaces and village halls.  (Meg and I saw ‘The Iranian Feast’ when it was performed in Howick Village Hall a few years ago, and it was brilliant!)

The show is on Saturday 3rd March in the Parish Hall at 7:30 pm (doors open at 7:00).  Prices are as usual, Adults £8, concessions £7, children £5, and tickets can be bought from N&F Young and online, or on the door.  There will be a licensed bar, and a raffle.


On: Saturday April 7th
Time: 2:00pm
At: Parish Hall Dovecote Street

Usual stalls to include...

* Books, CDs
* Toys, Bric-a-Brac
* Children's interest table
* Homemade cakes
* Tombola
* Raffle
* Bottle Pull

Cream Teas also available.

The proceeds are to go towards our church funds.

ALL WELCOME

Dan and Alistaire

HIGHLIGHTS – Dan Walsh and Alistair Anderson - Sharper Than

Saturday 9th June
Parish Hall - 7:30 Doors open 7:00
There will be a bar.

Two of the most dynamic musicians in folk music strike sparks off each other in a fantastic new, cross generational, duo.  With repertoire ranging from Bluegrass songs to Northumbrian rants; from Jazzy ballads to Old Time reels their performance combines high energy with world class musicianship.

Alistair Anderson (Concertina & Northumbrian Pipes) has been blazing a trail for the music of Northumberland and beyond for close on 5 decades while Dan Walsh (Banjo, Guitar and Vocals) is fast establishing himself as one of the finest young performers around. Both open minded, thoughtful, musicians with love of both the traditional and the distinctly “off the wall,” they share a chemistry on stage which delights audiences and builds a very special energy on stage.

Hear more from this duo on youtube.

The History behind 'Mauretania Day'

On Wednesday 6th July 1935, on her final voyage, RMS Mauretania sailed past Amble on her way to the docks at Rosyth to be broken up.

At 10:25am, the clerk to Amble Urban Council sent the captain of the Mauretania a message of greeting:

"Amble to Mauretania. Greetings from Amble, last port in England, to still the finest ship on the seas".

Back came the reply:
"Mauretaina to Urban Council, Amble, to the last and kindliest port in England, greetings and thanks. Mauretania."

Decades of retelling this story means 'kindliest' has now turned into 'friendliest'.


SERMONS

‘Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us’

Words which trip easily off the tongue some weeks in church, and at other times perhaps seem pregnant with meaning, or challenge, or make us feel ashamed?  Steven Cottrell, now Bishop of Chelmsford, writes in the new Pilgrim Course on the baptismal promises, that ‘forgiveness is at the heart of the Christian faith’.  Yet it’s a subject we haven’t touched on much recently in the life of our church.  To rectify that, we have had a sermon series, which is something else we hadn't done in a while!  This time, preachers were invited from outside our community to come and preach to us as well, on this topic which hopefully both challenged us with some new ideas; sustained us in the knowledge of God’s love and expanded our hearts to share more fully in God’s compassion.
