A NEW YEAR SONGS OF PRAISE
There is nothing quite like a good hymn to lift our spirits and strengthen our faith, and, like many of you, I have found great encouragement from listening to well known hymns over the last few months. I have even been known to join in, while listening, when the words were available or came easily to mind.
So what could be better for us all than A New Year Songs of Praise? Will you let me know what hymn you have found particularly helpful during this difficult period? I would love to include it in a Songs of Praise selection. If possible, let me have a sentence saying why you have chosen it. We will then find a version of it on Youtube, though you may wish to choose a version yourself.
You can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you - if possible by Saturday, 16 January.
We plan to make this New Year Songs of Praise available on the Benefice website from Sunday, 24 January 2021, and it will remain on the website for a period following.
Meanwhile, a happy new year to you all,
You are very welcome to go into our Benefice churches for some quiet and to use the prayers there reflecting on the past year and remembering.
