A solo concert of songs with a story to tell, accompanied on his selection of acoustic guitars.
As part of its 200 year celebrations, Northallerton’s Zion United Reformed Church is presenting an evening with this award-winning, Northern singer/songwriter in March with light refreshments.
After over a decade of touring experience and around ten CDs, plus commissions from organisations as varied as Traidcraft and The People’s Kitchen, plus an Arts Council residency at the Newcastle Mining Institute, Gareth is becoming increasingly acclaimed. His music has been featured on BBC television and radio and used in a variety of settings - from helping WW2 Arctic Convoy veterans receive the recognition of the UK government, to the ongoing campaign for International Trade Justice.

What or who are Angels? Where do they fit in with our Christian faith?
Following on from December/January’s Reform leading article on ‘Be an angel’, here is an invitation to continue to explore together on what this mystery might mean for us. Editor Stephen Tomkins leaves us a challenge in his final words…
When I am asked why I just can’t believe in angels, all I can say is, ‘ I don’t believe
In angels, but I have without a shadow of a doubt met one!’
So meeting in the cottage, or the church if numbers preclude the smaller venue, here are the dates.
12th March. ……Introduction to Angels. Who are they?
19th March……Angels in Art. Led by former curator of Bowes Museum… Elizabeth Conran
26th March……Angels in the Bible, Poetry and Literature
2nd April…….Angels in Music……Led by Hazel Sumsion
9th April…….Journeying with Angels
Time 7.00pm – 8.15pm. Each session will be self-contained, so there is no need to worry if you can’t make them all.
Each session will probably include:
