Chipstable Songs of Praise

The service was organised and ably led by Mary Whitmarsh.

This was a lovely service, with an enthusiastic congregation, proving that the older hymns are still very popular.

Most people stood up and explained why they had chosen their hymn, which was often very moving.

Oliver West, was our organist, who also confidently sang as he played, to lead us in a german hymn that was new to him..and us!

There was coffee, cheese and biscuits afterwards.

It was generally agreed that this should be an annual event.

Many thanks to all who had any part in organising this uplifting service.
