Winter is upon us, although we’ve just got back from leading an exciting music week at Brunel Manor (Torquay) where the weather was very mild. However, Christmas is looming and we are so keen to encourage folk to celebrate a truly Christian Christmas, with bible-based stories and lyrics. At CMM we have musicals, songs, carols, choral pieces, etc, so do have a look at the CMM SITE, which gets increasingly busy with lots of new items.
We now have many of our books available for Kindle as well as “hard” copies, and all our recordings are now on iTunes, Spotify, etc, as well as on CD. Do consider our Christmas Musicals, Christmas Collection, Songs of Christmas, Choral pieces, “Squidgy Bod at Christmas”, Backing Tracks, etc.
At this time of year there’s always the perennial challenge of presents for friends and family. Did you know that you can raise funds for CMM whilst purchasing from your usual suppliers (eg. Amazon, etc), yet it won’t cost you a penny extra? Do have a look at EASY FUNDRAISING and consider supporting CMM in this way.
Our free SONG OF THE MONTH is “Coming with the clouds”, from “Angel Voices”, and my PSALM COLLECTION and suitable for Advent and other times.
Our Intern Rachel Haddon has been very busy doing all sorts of new things with CMM:
- Read about Month One in the life of an Intern
- Read about Month Two in the life of an Intern
- Watch Rachel’s video about our September 2017 Tour of Barnabas (in Scotland and Penrith).
The CMM Choir is about to launch a series of evenings for Christmas, which will include performances of STARGAZERS (new edition available) and an exciting new carol by Annie:
- Sun 19 Nov, St Bernard’s, Broome Ave, Hamstead, B43 5AL - 1800

This Saturday (11 Nov) we lead a WORSHIP WORKS day at Jump Wesleyan Reformed Church, Barnsley (1000-1630), and later in the month we are working with St John’s, Ben Rhydding, Ilkley, W Yorks. The production of SIMEON (Sat 25 Nov) is at 1830, and I shall be preaching at Family Worship the next day at 1000.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement.
