On Wednesday, 16 September, at 18:00, we are going to have a sponsored Songs of Praise evening, with hymns to be chosen according to popularity. For 1€, you can vote for a hymn – as many times as you like!
Richard has graciously agreed to accompany us. Voting cards have been available in the church for a couple of months. We have been keeping a tally in the church.
At the moment (beginning of August), the leading hymns in the voting are as follows:
- O Lord My God, When I In Awesome Wonder (How Great Thou Art)
- Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah/Redeemer
- And Did Those Feet In Ancient Times
- I The Lord Of Sea And Sky (Here I Am, Lord)
- Dear Lord And Father Of Mankind
- Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace (Prayer Of Saint Francis)
There are 24 hymns on the list at this point, so some will inevitably not make it on 16 September. Somewhat surprisingly, “Amazing Grace” has not yet received a single vote.
Nevertheless, the chaplain does undertake to take full consideration of input received when choosing the weekly hymns!
