We raised the rafters singing with a packed church at the St Matthias Patronal Festival birthday celebrations – and if that wasn’t reward in itself, we received this gorgeous message from Father David Lambert
“I would like to say a huge thank you for the most wonderful performance of the Alleluia Chorus at our Patronal Festival yesterday. As well as giving a splendid rendition, the choir were wonderful in enhancing our celebration and those who came and participated in our worship, said how much they enjoyed the singing.
“Our Patronal Festivals have over the past years been increasingly supported because “word” has got out that the Dissenters are singing! As I shared in the notices after the service, The Sixteen are very good, but, The Dissenters are even better!
Thank you so much to everyone who agreed to come and sing/perform for us and this message comes with much sincerity of heart in our gratitude for all that you do for St Matthias Church.”
We joined the congregation over food and drink at the church garden party which brings a whole new meaning to singing for our supper!
