Friday 16th May 2014
Phil Beer, legendary folk artist
St Helen's Church, Alveston

There will be a licenced bar.
Phil is one of the most popular ambassadors for acoustic roots music. A dazzling instrumentalist, he is recognised as a top flight fiddler and plays in the all-star line-up, Feast of Fiddles. But his skills don’t stop there, he also plays slide, Spanish and tenor guitar, mandocello, viola, mandolin and South American cuatro, not to mention contributing rich vocals.
Phil is best known for partnering Steve Knightley in the band “Show of Hands” who have won many Radio 2 Folk Awards including “best live act”. They look like the archetypal pub band but they have generated such a broad fan base that on four occasions they have filled the Albert Hall.

About St. Helen’s Church

The Benefice of St. Helen’s Alveston includes St. John’s Elberton and St. Mary’s Littleton with Pilning and Severn Beach.

We seek to welcome both our regular congregations and visitors and to serve the wider community through our Church life, whether through pastoral care, occasional offices or service and involvement in our wider community life and activities.

Messy Church

St. Helen’s was consecrated in 1885. During the recent re-ordering, the pews were removed allowing a wider breadth of worship, services and use.

There are two Sunday services at St. Helen’s every week; 8am service is Holy Communion; 10am service is: ‘First Sunday’ teaching service once a month, ‘Family’ service once a month and Holy Communion two/three times per month.

There is a Holy Communion Service every Tuesday at 10am.

Our monthly range of worship is both traditional and contemporary from Book of Common Prayer, through Common Worship and Taizé services.

Hospitality is important to us. We aim to be a friendly and inclusive church where everyone can find a home. With Christ as our head we seek to create a community where all feel loved and accepted.

St Helen's Church would like to see its premises used by the local community. It can provide a large area for your club, organisation activities, tables and seating for up to 150 persons, a kitchen for light refreshments and disabled toilet facilities.
