Make music to the Lord with the lyre, with the lyre and the voice of melody. With trumpets and the sound of the horn sound praises before the Lord, the King (Psalm 98 v 7 & 8)
Music has the ability to lift the spirits, to evoke memories and to bring us together. Collectively taking part in creating music, whether that be playing an instrument, banging a drum or singing, has been shown to be beneficial to our mental wellbeing.
Unfortunately, this year, we have not had the chance to do many of these things - even our congregations in church have not had the benefit of joining in the singing of hymns, However, singing at home is allowed, so if you feel the urge to join in with our online Parish Carol Service this year please go to the church website and on Monday evening at 7.30pm we can all join together to sing praises to the Lord. Wishing you all a very peaceful Christmas and a healthy and Happy New Year.
