After months of careful planning and preparation, a very special weekend of praise and fellowship is almost upon us.
Seasoned composer Roger Jones will lead a two day musical workshop at Haydon Bridge Methodist Church, on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th of June, with his team from Christian Music Ministries.
It will be based on one of Roger's newest musicals, 'Torn Curtain' – a series of 11 songs with narration in-between, focusing on the idea of the torn curtain and how, because of Jesus' sacrifice we can now come to God freely without any barrier.
A successful appeal for choir members, soloists and narrators led to a series of productive practice sessions.
But with performers at the ready, it is hoped people from around the Circuit will join in the audience, when the weekend concludes with the musical at 4pm on the Sunday afternoon (12th June), featuring Roger and his team.
Over the past 40 years, Roger has written over 20 Christian musicals which have been performed across the UK.
A video premiere of the musical can be viewed on YouTube, if you search for 'Torn Curtain Roger Jones'. The Haydon Bridge version will look slightly different, but it gives a good idea of the music.
