The Jubilate Choir with John Edwards"seduces our souls".

IMG 0415 The Concert

The Jubilate choir directed by John Edwards gave a wonderful performance entitled 'Make a Joyful Noise unto the Lord" last night ,Wednesday 21st July.

An audience of over 40 enjoyed a wonderful illustrated guide to the English Church anthems which stretched from the work of Thomas Tallis in the 16th Century right through to modern works by Alan Bullard and John Rutter.

John gave a informative story of the development of church music through the ages starting from the split of the Christian church into the Western and Eastern parts in the eleventh century. The choir sang extracts from 13 different anthems and it was clear from the quality of their singing that a great deal of work had gone into making the evening such a success.

Michael Hooper, Churchwarden, thanked John and the Jubilate Choir for their joyous performance and quoting part of John Edwards talk he said that the choir had seduced the souls of the listeners.

We have a New Vicar - Hurrah and Alleluia!!

IMG 6454 Ginni Dear and Michael BeasleyOn the evening of Monday 11th July 2016 our new vicar the Revd Ginni Dear was Instituted by the Bishop of Hertford the Rt Revd Dr Michael Beasley and Installed and Inducted by our Rural Dean the Revd Dr Jane Mainwaring.

In a packed church the congregation, Ginni's family and guests enjoyed a joyous service of celebration as Ginni became part of our Benefice family.

The five Benefice Churchwardens led Ginni to the Bishop and presented her for institution. The Revd Jo Loveridge from All Saints Hertford recommended her to us and added it was a sad day for Ginni to be leaving All Saints. 

The service included a reading by Howell Davies and special welcomes from parishioners from within the Benefice.

An Act of Commitment by the Incumbement and People saw presentations and statements from Rosemary Stratton, Pat Fry, Roger Cox, Jennifer Veasey, Anne Swift and Cherry Carter.

The prayers of dedication and intercession were led by Ginni assisted by Anne Steel, Mike Davies and Louise Conway.

Overall it was a splendid evening of welcome and it was topped by a wonderful spread of food in the St ippolyts School Hall.

Everyone agreed it was a memorable occasion. Now now look forward to Ginni joining us permanently on 2nd August.

 

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED PUT TOGETHER SUCH A WONDERFUL SERVICE
