My personal photo is of Magnolia buds in our garden at dawn, which represent the beauty of God’s creation and the promise of renewal even in the midst of winter.

At our 10:30 service this morning, the newly restored Choir Organ had its debut when Barry played the entire service using just the Choir console. We are very grateful to Clifford Godfrey for making this possible. This part of the organ has not worked for over 10 years and it is especially good to have it back in time for our Christmas Carol Service which starts at 6:30 this evening. ... See MoreSee Less

Carol singing on Arthur's Avenue with the Junior Choir last night followed by choir practice, rehearsing for the Crib Service, and watching part of a film before bedding down for the night in the stable. They were all out for the count at 6.45 this morning when I woke them for tea, hot chocolate and bacon butties. Thanks to Terri Judd and Kim for giving up your night for them and to Nick's Place for the chips.
Our juniors are fabulous. Come and hear them sing at our carol service and lead our crib service on Christmas Eve.
Lots of money raised for Crisis.

The UAH year 7 christingle service this afternoon. I went into church just before the service began and I have never known it so quiet when full of people. And they sang, all of them, not just the chamber choir, though sadly I messed up videoing Shine Jesus Shine. Well done. The noisy bit is when they were making their christingles! ...

At a service of choral evensong at Lincoln Cathedral yesterday, which celebrated St Hugh of Lincoln, Rosamund was installed as a Canon of the Cathedral, together with three other new canons. A few of us managed to be present to support her, the service was truly joyful and uplifting and the Cathedral choir were stunning to listen to. The prebend of Milton Ecclesia, which Rosamund takes up, dates back to 1290. There will be a full article on the fascinating history and background in the next Ashlings magazine. ...

Mick Boylan has received an update from Malcolm Spink who has been working on the Organ Restoration, he reports that ....... "The chests have been stripped of their failing magnets, both chests have been prepped for accepting the new equipment, the first batch of new custom-built magnets have been delivered and have been fitted, we are hopeful that the next batch will arrive within the next 2 weeks. Once all the magnets have been fitted we will assemble the chests in the factory, supply them with the correct wind pressure and thoroughly test all movements. We would then return everything to Holbeach and assemble the organ. We are in the hands of our magnet supplier but we should be able to get all things put back together before November 28th; we'll keep our figures crossed." Malcolm sent some photographs of the work in progress showing the old and new magnets. ... See MoreSee Less
