Normality resumed …

     With a new season commenced and a new rector installed, this page, aimed at the singers in our church choir in the first place, and then at anyone interested in the music of worship, will once again be kept up-to-date.

There are two imminent dates for diaries:

Sunday 23rd October: the usual Service of Thanksgiving for Harvest;  which has become all the more relevant as we reflect on climate change, and all its implications.

Sunday 6th November:  our annual Patronal Festival, celebrating and recalling that Zion Church opened for worship on All Saints’ Day, 1st November 1861.

Rehearsals will be held at 9.45 am, please, on:

Sunday 16th October, Sunday 23rd October and Sunday 6th November
