On Saturday 5th December 2009, Roger, Helen, Simon, Louise, Ann and Tim travelled to Tenbury Wells/Burford in deepest darkest Worcestershire. Valley Worship is a monthly worship meeting organised by Bernard Morgan. The vision for the regular meeting is for the scattered village congregations, enabling them to meet together for lively worship that their own limited resources cannot support.
The evening was great fun. 80 or so gathered, and Roger led an evening full of praise and worship. It was themed around advent and Christmas, and incorporated a lot of Roger's own songs, including his version of O Little Town of Bethlehem, Infant Holy, God is with us, Emmanuel and God is our shelter and strength.
With Tim on drums and Simon on guitar there was a fantastic rythmn section. Roger led from the keyboard with Helen and Lou on flute and sax respectively, and Ann, Lou, Simon and Helen providing vocals.
We pray that the evening was fun and encouraging for the congregation, and that their meetings continue to bless the rural churches way into the future.
