We have completed some
challenging music this year thanks to Paul's direction and look to the
Bishop's visit in the spring.
- Mid December was our annual Christmas Lessons and Carols service.
Our Extra Christmas Music selections were:
Advent IV and Christmas eve both receive different selections. As we do the Advent carol in the morning and Little Drummer Boy at the Christmas Eve Service, then O Come Emmanuel (accommpanied with a flutist) at the Late night service. We certainly hope our selections now and at the Advent Carol Service have enriched your worship experience. Christmas Wishes for the Epiphany choir.

Our important role in the church rests with regular choir practices, participation each Sunday and preparing special music for occasions like the Bishop's visit, Thanksgiving, Advent and Christmas.
We sing music responses during worship; for example the Agnus Dei (Lamb of God) arrangement by Peter Nardone, also Lord Hear our Prayer and 5 fold Amen.
