Music is part of being the people of God. After escaping from the Egyptians and crossing the Red Sea, Miriam took up the tambourine and the people of Israel sang a song to the Lord. Think of the David the shepherd with his harp, and the psalms that still give voice to our souls. Think of the priests in the temple of old. These days I place myself beside Mary singing God’s praise (Luke 1:46-55). Music is part of being Christian, and it certainly part of our celebrations of the birth of Christ, of Christmas.
Join us this Sunday for a service of music – beginning with a by-request hymn sing at 10:10 a..m., followed by carols of Advent and Christmas for all, and contributions by the St. Andrew’s Choir and Bell Choir, interspersed with readings of scripture. There is ample parking available free on surrounding streets and in a public lot just behind the church off Queen Street. During the service there is a nursery offered for infants 3 years and younger, and a programme for children.
