Gospel Carol Service

Friday 17 December 2021

After a two year wait, Reading Refugee Support Group is incredibly pleased to reunite with Reading Community Gospel Choir to proudly present the return of our Gospel Carol Service.

Launched in 2019, the first Gospel Carols Service was a smash success, with RCGC stunning a packed audience and raising thousands of pounds to help refugees living in Berkshire.

Sadly last year’s event was unable to go ahead due to COVID restrictions, so we are unbelievably excited to finally bring it back in 2021!

This special event promises to be a Christmas Carol event with a difference, with Gospel style renditions of your favourite Christmas Carols and an alternative telling of the Nativity story through the eyes of refugees.

Following the recent Afghanistan Crisis, the number of refugees needing support in Berkshire has rocketed, and the money raised at this special concert will help provide vital mental health support, social activities, practical help and advice for the many families in need.

After the event, we will be serving delicious mulled wine and juice, paired tasty mince pies and baklava.
