Sad news:
May 7th 2019.

Dear Choir Members,

I have been with the organ builder this lunchtime and have come away with the sad conclusion that we are going to have to postpone the opening concert on May 18th and the Choral Evensong on May 19th. The sad truth is that by the 18th the organ builders should have all the pipes in and mechanically everything will be working, but it will not have been voiced or tuned. In fact not all the pipes will be in as in the swell box one cannot put in certain of the pipes until others have been tuned as once the others are in, the ones at the back cannot be accessed.
The voicing and tuning could take up to two weeks.

We are not cancelling but hope that very soon we can put on this Choral Evensong and the opening organ concert.

My apologies to you and all those who planned to join us, it is a great disappointment to us, but we hope it will be possible to go ahead with it in the very near future, and we particularly hope you can still join with us in this joint venture.

I hope that it will not be long before I can write to you again and give you our suggested new date.

As far as rehearsals are concerned we will postpone using most of the rehearsals for the Choral Evensong, although we will continue working at the music as part of our rehearsals. I will let all our visitors know when we will start working on the music for most of our rehearsals.

Thank you for the work you have already done on this Evensong, when we have a date we will again give the music our undivided attention.

I look forward to seeing the St MM Choir on Thursday as we have plenty of new music and anthems to keep us busy in the coming weeks.

With all good wishes,

Jonathan.

Daily Devotionals

Daily devotionals come from three sources that you can choose from (or use all!), whether travelling to work, sitting and relaxing during a well deserved break, or making one of them a part of your daily 'quiet time' with God.

Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer and Night Prayer (or Compline) come from the Church of England's Common Worship which provides prayers and readings for different times during the day.

The daily readings are taken from The Revised Common Lectionary which divides the Bible into a three-year cycle of readings, years A, B and C.

Pray As You Go is a Jesuit based, audio resource that can be listened to anywhere.

Morning Prayer

Please click this link to be taken to today's Morning Prayer readings and prayers from the Church of England's Common Worship.

Evening Prayer

Please click this link to be taken to today's Evening Prayer readings and prayers from the Church of England's Common Worship.

Compline

Please click this link to be taken to today's Night Prayer readings and prayers from the Church of England's Common Worship.

The daily readings are taken from The Revised Common Lectionary which divides the Bible into a three-year cycle of readings, years A, B and C. These readings complement the Sunday and festival readings: Thursday through Saturday readings help prepare the reader for the Sunday ahead; Monday through Wednesday readings help the reader reflect on and digest what they heard in worship.

The Church year begins in Advent. This church year, 2018-2019, is year C.

we look forward to seeing you in church.
