Sing hymns on Saturdays at Norwich church 

Old Meeting House sing
Do you enjoy singing hymns? Now you can every third Saturday of the month at 4pm at the Old Meeting House Congregational Church in Colegate, Norwich.

Dr John Clements, pastor of the Old Meeting House Congregational Church writes: It is a proven psychological fact that singing can be the best medicine that you can take as it releases “happiness” hormones. Why do birds always sing? Because it is quite impossible to sing and be miserable at the same time!
But what is the best thing to sing you may ask? It may surprise you to hear that singing traditional hymns ranks highest in any popularity table. Hymns based on eternal truth fill your mind with positive thoughts and can inspire and encourage you during those difficult times in your life. It can be the best tonic you ever take to relieve stress! It is also a strange fact that the old hymns tend to be easier to sing than many modern ones and many find them uplifting. Weekends can tend to be long and lonely, so here’s a great new opportunity to meet other people and add some joy into your life. Please stay on afterwards for refreshments.
But, we’ve been keeping the best news until last – the ancient atmosphere of the oldest chapel in Norwich, which was built in 1693, is amazing!  So why not give it a try? We would love to see you.

Easy parking in The Golden Dog car park next to the chapel. See for further directions.
