Taking place at St Martin in the Bull Ring on the evening of Saturday 9 December, the captivating night will feature a live performance from the renowned Lichfield Gospel Choir.
School-feeding charity Mary’s Meals is set to host an inspiring Christmas event in the heart of Birmingham to celebrate the festive season.
A Very Gospel Christmas, which will take place at St Martin in the Bull Ring on the evening of Saturday 9 December, will feature a captivating live performance from the fantastic Lichfield Gospel Choir.
Mary’s Meals’ Founder and Sunday Times bestselling author Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow will also give a talk about the work of the charity, sharing inspiring stories from the children receiving Mary’s Meals and our supporters making this possible.
The one-off event will include a selection of seasonal stalls and plenty of mince pies and mulled wine to get people in the festive spirit in the countdown to Christmas.
Mary’s Meals feeds more than 2.4 million children every school day in 18 countries including Ethiopia, Haiti and Zimbabwe. The promise of a nutritious meal encourages children into the classroom where they can gain an education and hope for a brighter future.
Proceeds from the evening will allow Mary’s Meals to serve nutritious school meals to hungry children living in some of the world’s poorest countries.
Looking forward to the event, Hannah Stewart, Supporter Engagement Manager at Mary’s Meals, says:
We’re incredibly excited to be hosting A Very Gospel Christmas in Birmingham and we’re really looking forward to welcoming everyone to St Martin in the Bull Ring this December.
The wonderful Lichfield Gospel Choir will certainly get us all in the festive spirit with a fantastic night of gospel music, while your attendance will also help us to continue our work feeding hungry children across the world, this Christmas.
