WMC: July 2018
After more than 20 years of co-ordinating the Music Group, June Grunwald has decided to stand back for a while and serve in other roles in the Church instead. We offer a huge vote of thanks to June for all that she has done.
Some thoughts about the Music Group were put forward at our recent "Church Away Day at Home", so this seems like a good time to review what we are doing and where we want to go from here.
On Saturday 21st July at 7:30pm we are going to meet at 32 Blackcroft to listen to everybody's ideas and enjoy a bring-and-share supper.
Anybody interested in joining the Group is more than welcome.
There will be no pressure if you subsequently decide it's not for you, but come and explore.
There may well be hidden talent in the congregation, especially amongst those relatively new to the Church.
Don't be shy! Come and meet us!
For planning purposes, it would be helpful if you could let me know if you would like to come (firstname.lastname@example.org or 01235 766655).
