Church plans special weekend.

Byline: Hazel Ettienne ,

A huddersfield church is hosting a community weekend during Black History Month.

The New Testament Church of God in Great Northern Street has a two-day event planned for October 29 and 30.

It will culminate in a community concert at the church between 6pm and 9pm on the Sunday, when there will be a variety of modern and gospel singing.

The Rev Orlando Brown, of the church, is inviting everyone to come along.

The event aims to provide advice and information to various groups.

Organisations supporting the event include the Abacus Association, which supports African Caribbean families through education and the arts; the Harriet Tubman Agency, which provides support for people with disabilities; and Kirklees Council's housing benefits staff, who will give help and advice.

There will also be Caribbean food tasting and free light refreshments.

On the Sunday the Rev Paul Thomas will lead the service, which starts at 11am. The guest speaker will be the Rev Derick Webley, district overseer of Handsworth church in Birmingham.
