Live@ The Church
Cookham’s Live Wire Productions staged a concert at Holy Trinity last weekend of July. It was the first of a series of four “Live@ The Church” events scheduled over the next 4 months and proved to be stunning success. Dramatic lighting changed the interior of the church from its traditional appearance into a softly lit performance space, even enhancing the building’s attractive mediaeval features.
The concert featured Anglo-Dutch singer, guitarist and songwriter Gitta de Ridder, whose programme of modern folk pop songs entranced an appreciative audience. Gitta was followed after the interval by Grizzly and the Grasshoppers. “Grizzly Rhys” Morgan plays “Roots and Blues” music at its foot stomping best. Their music was an excellent contrast to the softer tones of Gitta de Ridder and completed an excellent programme of folk based music. Live Wire will be producing a series of three further folk music themed concerts in the church on:
24th November at 7.00pm Don't miss the last in the current series of concerts - with music from one of the UK’s finest Acoustic Americana, Bluegrass &
Country bands - Jaywalkers - are on a large UK tour with a brand-new album! Effortlessly creating a unique
sound based on their collective and individual musical backgrounds.
Interspersed between their songs, the band display their trademark blistering
instrumental skills and impressive Bluegrass chops.
Also Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith are one of the finest duos to have
emerged onto the British folk and acoustic scene in recent years. Their
combination of outstanding vocal work, sensitive instrumentation, and a
powerful social conscience has brought them widespread critical acclaim. The
songs themselves are always given centre stage but they are brought to life
with stunning musical arrangements and vocals

Kids’ Holiday Club 30 July to 3
August 2018 at Holy Trinity Church, Cookham
We have had a fantastic time at Kids’ Club - both children and helpers.
The theme of the week was MegaMakers based on Ephesians and explored the theme of inventions. We have therefore been learning about the breadth and depth of God’s love for us all through craft, drama, sport and music. We have also learned a new song which we have been singing all week - “Wide and Long and High and Deep” which has enough actions to make us feel as if we’ve done a complete workout every morning!
We had our very own Mega Machine on stage, invented by Professor Boffin and his apprentice Brainwave, which had the ability to enlarge anything placed inside it - turning a piece of bread into a whole loaf, a small ball into a large one and a small bottle of water into a large bucket of water - we are still trying to find out how it did this! The machine demonstrates the concept of things getting bigger which parallels the theme of MegaMakers - the more we discover about God the vaster his love for us may seem.
A big thank you to all our helpers who did a wonderful job in looking after the children and providing such fabulous activities for them.
