Singing the faith in Yarmouth
Anyone who enjoys singing is invited to come for a sponsored sing in Great Yarmouth on October 8. Tony Rothe reports.
Yarmouth Methodists are organising the sponsored sing which will be held at Christchurch from 10am to 4pm on Saturday October 8. They will be singing from the Methodist “Singing the Faith” hymn-book. Proceeds are for the Norfolk Broads Methodist Circuit (formerly East Norfolk Circuits).
“Many say Methodism was born in song; well, some of us like a good sing” said organiser Glenda Tooke.
“Last time we did this we met in Christchurch, with great organists and leaders, some of us were there for all 6 hours and some just popped in and out. We sang 90 hymns, about half new and half old favourites and with gift aid approx. £1000 was raised for the Circuit. As there are nearly 800 hymns in the book we only sang about one ninth, so we will be singing some more of them this time.
“Please come and learn some of the new hymns in the book, sing for as long as you wish or just come and listen and Praise God. Everyone is warmly welcome.”
There are sponsor forms available and also gift envelopes, all of which should be eligible for Gift Aid.
Contact Glenda on 01493 740755.
Light refreshments will be available all day.
Christchurch Methodist United Reform Church is on King Street in Great Yarmouth, NR30 2HL.
