The Piazolla Project: A concert by the tango collective

Not to be missed, The Piazolla Project by the tango collective is a celebration of the life and work of composer Astor Piazzolla in the year that would have seen his 100th birthday. Piazzolla’s music is the music of Buenos Aires; nuevo tango, beautiful and innovative music not to dance to, but to inspire, make us dream and transport us to faraway places full of longing and passion. The poetry of the songs is the poetry of our times – the loneliness of the big city, the dark soul of tango, the missed and elusive. The songs will be performed in English and Spanish and there will be a brief introduction into the life and legacy of this iconic and hugely influential composer.

Doors open 20 minutes before the performance, which will be about an hour long. Please note this is a socially distanced event, so we ask that you take your seat, distancing yourself from anyone that is not in your bubble. Do bring your own drinks if you would like to; due to Covid we are not having an interval or a bar.

Tickets are available on Eventbrite here

HELP NEEDED FOR VULNERABLE WOMEN

We are making weekly trips to the food bank at St Paul’s Church in Bath Road Hounslow to pick up supplies for some female asylum seekers, currently housed in Hounslow hotels. These women are intensely vulnerable, many with very young children and babies, and one is pregant, which means walking to the food bank is very difficult. The food provided by the hotel is not great, and they have no cooking facilities, so what they need most is fresh fruit and vegetables that need no cooking. Donations would be very gratefully received, either in church or directly to Shelagh Allsop. For more information, contact Shelagh on 07710 385839 or 020 8995 9390 or shelagh.allsop@gmail.com

HELP FOR REFUGEES

The lockdown has made it hard for all of us, but especially the very poorest in our society. Jesus always directed his ministry towards the most marginalised, challenging us to overcome prejudice and self-interest in the way we respond to situations that we cannot ignore. Rachel Tanner recently spoke in church about the work of the St Paul's Refugee Fund, and how you can help. You can read her talk by downloading the pdf below. And if you would like to donate to the fund financially, those details are also here.
