Speaking of favourite hymns

Most of us have favourite hymns. Sometimes one stands out. Sometimes our choice changes. Sometimes our favourite is one we learned as a child.

Each Sunday in August at 5pm Vespers the speakers will talk on a favourite traditional hymn, and if possible we’ll sing the hymn too.

How will the hymns be chosen? Well if we asked everyone to nominate we’d probably get too many. So to select the four traditional hymns to be spoken of we’re having a ballot. On Sunday 29th July everyone at church will be invited to vote. Everyone will have three votes to use if they wish and the votes can all be used for one hymn, or spread among two or three hymns.

Now  – YOU can vote here for ONE of the hymns from the list. We know there are many favourites not on this list – this is the selection we are choosing from this time.

We’d welcome your vote!
