Celebrating Eccles No. 3 is attached. This is our third update on our May 2014, celebration of Eccles weekend event.
‘Celebrating Eccles’ has been jointly conceived by the Rev. Cyprian Yobera, Vicar of Eccles Parish Church and Danny Moloney, Principal of Chrysalis Managed Events during January 2014.
The aim and objective of ‘Celebrating Eccles 2014’ is to position Eccles Parish Church (as the historic heart of the community) via a range of inclusive community creative activities, all based and centred physically around the church; as an important and vibrant part of our community.
In the future, it is envisaged that ‘Celebrating Eccles‘ will evolve into a broader and inclusive range of events; encompassing and developing aspects of our diverse and historic Culture, Community, Opportunity and Vision.
‘Celebrating Eccles 2014’ weekend (May 17th & 18th) will consist of six major cultural themes;
Creative Eccles - presentations of creative, artistic and musical talent in music, words, performance, artistry & design, inside and outside the church itself.
Living Eccles - what it is like to be born, bred, living and working in Eccles?
StandUp Eccles - performances of creative, artistic and musical talent in music, words, performance, artistry & design, inside and outside the church itself.
Celebrate Eccles Service - all are welcome to the regular Sunday service at Eccles Parish Church.
Eccles Past, Present & Future - memories, stories, thoughts reflections and experiences
Celebrate Eccles - concert provided by the Irlam Male Voice Choir and the Monton Singers
Two unique features of ‘Celebrating Eccles’ 2014 will be ‘Eccles Together’ & ‘Giving Eccles’.
Ecclesiasts ‘StandUp, Eccles’ Lunch on Saturday 17th May from 12.00 noon to 2.00 pm will be a meeting place for Eccles Enthusiasts in creative & artistic talent in presentation and performance in music, words, performance, artistry & design.
Ecclesiasts “Celebrate Eccles’ Lunch on Sunday 18th May from 12.00 noon to 2.00 pm will be a meeting place for Eccles Enthusiasts in prayer, music, narratives and song.
