WMC: September 2018
Changes in music for worship
In the summer newsletter we said thank you to June for all that she has done in more than twenty years of leading the music group. We reported that the group was meeting to discuss its future.
As a result of that review, the group decided that they wanted to try playing every three weeks as a regular pattern.
Up until now, Gill has tried to match the availability of the members of the group to the preacher on the plan, in the hope that we would make best use of the different skills offered by the music group and match them with the sort of music we predicted a given preacher might choose.
This meant that rotas often had to come out at the last minute. The new arrangement may or may not work, but we will try it for six, or maybe twelve, months and then review it. It is always good not to be stuck in a rut!
We reiterate what we said in the summer — if anybody is interested in joining as either a singer or an instrumentalist, please talk to one of the music group. Rehearsals are usually at 8 pm on the Wednesday before the group is scheduled to play — watch the church notices for dates.
