Roger's latest e-news

Dear friends - with the onset of June we look to a very full summer programme.

This weekend the CMM Choir starts its productions of JAIL BREAK:

Sat 10 Jun - St Hilda’s, Warley Woods - 19:00
Sat 17 Jun - St Germain’s, Edgbaston - 19:00
Sun 25 Jun - St Bernard’s, Hamstead - 18:00
Sat 01 Jul - Holy Trinity, Lickey - 19:00

Our first music week of the year, at Abbot Hall, Grange-over-Sands, went extremely well, and I was reminded about how much folk enjoy ANGEL VOICES.  Coming at it for the first time in a while, I myself really appreciated the amazing story-line from Revelation, a very relevant theme for this day and age!  I thought to myself: "I quite like this musical!" Well, the choir, soloists and instrumentalists were splendid, and we were aware of how much the Spirit was moving amongst us.  It was such great fun!

Our remaining all-age music weeks this year are at:

  • 5-12 Aug ANGEL VOICES Music Week - Lee Abbey (01598 752621) - virtually full, but you can enquire!
  • 26 Aug -02 Sep  ANGEL VOICES Music Week - Scargill House (01756 760500
  • 22-28 Oct WHILE SHEPHERDS WATCHED Music Week - Brunel Manor, Torquay (01803 329333)
These are wonderful times, where all are welcome to be part of times of fellowship, music-making (all-ages, all abilities), worship, bible-teaching, etc.  Even if you're not a singer or instrumentalist, there's a place for you to relax as a part of the family!  We'd love to see you there - book directly with the individual centres.

Our free song of the month is  O CHRIST THE SAME from "Seasons and Reasons", a collection of 32 seasonal and general hymns, with words by Bishop Timothy Dudley-Smith.  It was a great joy to work with him on this project!  Go to our website (bottom left corner of home page) where you can stream the full album. The music book and CD are available direct from us.

SPIRIT WORKS is proving really popular, and we've just ordered a reprint.  We are starting to get requests from churches to lead "Spirit Works" days and weekends, although we're having to look well ahead in the diary!

Once again, thank you all for your support and encouragement,
