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'.


‘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.
