On Sunday 24th September at St Francis Church, High Heaton, a pianist, poet and theologian, Nathanael Lewis, will be offering a free hour long spiritual musical experience, involving improvised piano music and poetic meditations.
‘This will be a chance to come and relax, let the flowing music and the words wash over you’ said Mr Lewis. ‘I have repeatedly been told that my piano playing is hauntingly beautiful, and that I have a way with words, and so I hope to combine them to great effect’.
Mr Lewis will also be providing some written material for people to read as they listen, relating to what he calls ‘the hidden victims of terror’, including from his recent human rights work exposing the plight of UK citizens who are often essentially internal refugees within the UK.
The event will run from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, at St Francis Church, which is tucked behind Freeman Hospital. The event is free, but a retiring collection will be held for the work of the International Christian Consulate, a charity that works to help Christian refugees from the Middle East, who face brutal persecution both in refugee camps in the Middle East and in Europe. http://www.internationalchristianconsulate.com/
