Whilst our church building may be closed to the public, it is not completely empty. Although public services have ceased for the time being, Paul has been able to say prayers and continue reading the prayer list. Meanwhile Shaun, our Choirmaster and Organist, has been able to record some videos for us. Rest assured that they have not been in the building at the same time!
As Lent, the season of self-reflection and penitence, draws to a close and we turn the corner to Passiontide, click here to watch Bob Chilcott’s setting of the sixth-century Irish hymn, Be thou my vision. Sung by Iona Biggart, a member of the Choir of St Andrew’s, and accompanied by Shaun Yong, Choirmaster and Organist.
A locked church
Ah my dear Lord, the church is locked
but let my heart be open to your presence;
there let us make, you and I,
your Easter garden;
plant it with flowers,
and let the heavy stone be rolled away.
