Do you enjoy singing?
Hopefully it won’t be too long before we are able to sing all together as a congregation, but for the time being we will just have a small group of singers at the 10 am Eucharist. If you would like to join in the singing as we move forward, get in touch! You do not have to be able to read music and you may only be available occasionally but we would love to hear from you. Email Carole Lax > if you are interested
