Pensnett church will be alive with the sound of music
8:10am Tuesday 25th September 2012 in News
A PENSNETT church will be alive with the sound of music this Saturday as it celebrates the 350th anniversary of the Book of Common Prayer.
Reverend Sue Oliver, who took over at St Mark’s Church in February, has been working alongside musician Paul Carr from Holy Trinity in Wordsley, to organise an afternoon of Evensong singing rehearsals for visitors leading up to a celebratory act of worship at 4pm.
Sue said: “It’s always great fun to sing with others and both beginners and more experienced singers will have an opportunity to learn the basics of choral Evensong and hopefully also an introit and anthem. Some of the music will reflect the fact that is also St Michael and All Angels day and between rehearsals and the service the lovely ladies at St Mark’s will be providing us with a beautiful afternoon tea.”
All are welcome to attend, regardless of singing ability. The event starts at 1pm, with a charge of £5 per person to cover music copies and afternoon tea.
For catering purposes, anyone interested in attending should contact Rev Oliver beforehand, by calling 01384 261558 or emailing email@example.com
