The Baptist Church hosted a free concert on behalf of Churches Together in North Shields on the evening of Saturday 24 May. For the 50 or so who attended, it was a treat to be enjoyed.
John Alexander Wilson, a Christian singer-songwriter from Inverness-shire performed an evening of songs, interspersed with stories about how they came to be written, and about his faith.
John sang with a strong, clear voice, and played a semi-acoustic guitar. For some songs he also ran a backing tracking enabling him to duet himself. Some of the songs arose from his reflections on God and faith, and some from people he had met, and were sung with passion. In one, he even had the audience clapping, dancing and singing along!
All in all, it was an enjoyable evening’s entertainment, and a chance to reflect on our lives and faith.
