Roger's January 2020 eNews

Hi Folks

Our first mailing of 2020 is here!  We hope you enjoyed reading all of our Christmas news. The New Year at CMM began in a special way with our annual retreat seeking the Lord for the future direction of the ministry.  Please be praying for us all and for our EBRG Housegroup as we seek to follow where the Spirit leads.

We are excited to announce that for the first time since the book launch in November 2013, we are going to be holding a Worship Works day in the West Midlands, and you are all invited!  The day, led by myself and my colleague Helen Pollard, will be at my home church in Lickey on Saturday 14th March.  If you have been to a Worship Works day before, we plan to introduce some new content, so it is well worth coming again.  Download a booking form here, or book online here.

The first full CMM performance of Torn Curtain since the premiere is coming up at Trinity Methodist Church in Kidderminster on Saturday 8th February at 7.30pm.  The performance will feature CMM soloists and instrumentalists, as well as our friends the New Life Together Choir.  Tickets are £6 available on the door or in advance from Sue on 01562 752798.

CMM Choir:
The CMM Choir are about to start performing Simeon again after their Christmas break:

  • 26/01 Longbridge Retirement Village, 1800
  • 02/02 Chasetown Methodist Church, 1800
  • 09/02 Baptist Free Church, Marston Green, 1830

The choir will then begin rehearsals in early March for their 25th Anniversary Concerts this summer.  If you have ever been part of the CMM Choir, we would love to invite you to a special afternoon tea at Christ Church, Burney Lane, Ward End, B8 2AS on Saturday 11th July.  Do get in touch with for more details.

Other CMM Events coming up:

For further details on any of these events, do get in touch with the CMM Office.

We are very sorry to announce that due to the very sudden death of a close friend of the ministry, we have had to cancel our musical in a day in Nantwich in April. This means that Saturday 25th April is now available in Annie's diary for a musical in a day event, with CMM soloists already booked.  If you are interested in hosting this day, do get in touch with the CMM office on 01527 576 440 or

Heart & Soul News

The Heart & Soul team are taking a short winter break and look forward to broadcasting again soon - watch this space for details of where to find them, as sadly it is likely they will no longer be associated with South Birmingham Radio. You can still find most of the past recordings on this page of our blog site.

Every blessing!
