The Christmas Sing

St Mary’s RC Church, Bath, 7.00pm on Friday 22nd Dec 2017

· Everyone can sing, not just ‘the experts’, and the Christmas Sing aims to awaken the singer in all of us.

· Christmas is a time of celebration, and it has the best music of the year!

· Please come and join us for what we hope will be the first of many events encouraging people in St Mary’s to SING – all church members and friends are most welcome!

· We will listen to some music, learn some new music and sing some good ol’ carols.

· We hope to light the spark of singing at St Mary’s for all who participate and feel inspired by this event – maybe some will want to continue singing in the Church in the New Year.

· Afterwards, there will be seasonal refreshments in the Parish Centre to welcome in the Christmas weekend.

Those taking part

· Musicians currently participating at St Mary’s services: Hugh Osborne, Bob Hussey, Helen and Terry Bletso, Tony Wilde

· The Bb Barbers (who sang at the Lunchtime Concert on Friday 17th November)

· Church Children’s Group

· YOURSELVES!!
