Come All Ye Faithful

This advent season, Tearfund is coming to town with incredible Christian singer-songwriters from around the UK for our annual Christmas concert tour. Come, all ye faithful, and join the celebration in an evening of festive cheer with beautiful acoustic carols and original songs from Yvonne Lyon, Paul Bell, Ellyn Oliver and David Lyon.

Each performance will help to raise money for Tearfund’s partners, bringing hope to the world’s poorest communities.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, so we look forward to seeing you soon at a venue near you!
