Sing Good News

The Sing Good News choir and band made up of people from 15 churches across Southport have done 9 presentations in 2017 and 2018: two at St Philip & St Paul with Wesley, two at Christ Church, one at the Southport Bandstand and in October 2017 at Holy Trinity.

This year they have taken it further afield and gone to St Luke’s Formby, Bare Methodist Church and St Andrew’s Leyland.
