The Music Group, 1 June 2008
Hedley says We are very aware that all our musical gifts are from God and will continue to try and develop our worship in a way that pleases Him and helps others as they encounter His love through music.
The Music Group continues to focus on contemporary and evangelical music & songs.
We rehearse once a fortnight, usually on a Wednesday evening - and new members are always welcome. Please contact Hedley via the Parish Office 01372 362544.
The Music Group - from the June 2009 magazine
The Music Group in various guises has supported family service, informal Communion, Evening Praise and, more recently, New Fire for a good number of years. Our style of performance has also developed as we have learnt, under the tutoring of David Oliver, the best ways to use the skills and instruments we have at our disposal.
However, we have four requests for the congregations who attend the services at which we play;
Firstly, do you like what we do, the styles of music and the worship songs which we play.
Secondly, are there any musicians who would care to join our happy band, to help spread the load so we can ensure that we are always available in suitable numbers when required, even on bank holiday weekends?
Thirdly, is there anyone who would like to be trained to operate the sound desk so we can always have our sound controlled and balanced.
Finally, we would like to have a one-word name which will help us create an identity, rather than just being called "The Music Group" and would welcome any suitable suggestions.
If you have any thoughts or comments about any of the above please speak to any member of The Music Group who will be happy to discuss them with you.
