Spring musical evening at Derryvolgie Parish church

Members and visitors to Derryvolgie Parish church last Friday evening (18th April) enjoyed a great evening of gospel and popular music intermingled with an abundant supply of humorous stories and jokes. The 'Spring Musical' evening was organised by the parish's social and outreach committee and the programme, which was compered by local man Andy Sproule, featured David Major (Lisburn), Alan Murphy (Annahilt), Des McVeigh (Bangor) and the Parish's own talented group, the Derryvolgie Singers led by Graham Murphy on piano and James Hamilton on guitar. The special guest was 14-year-old Julia Clarke from Belfast, who has drawn comparisons to former Voice of an Angel star Charlotte Church.

A delightful supper was served during the interval of the fundraising concert and proceeds will be used to support the maintenance and upkeep of the church property.
