Choir practice with our leader Janet Swan.
The choir has been running since March 2013. Set up with funding from the Near Neighbours Fund (Church Urban fund), the choir welcomes people from all faiths and none.
NB Choir dates below.
Dates until Easter
We celebrated our choir’s fifth birthday on the 12th March by visiting the One Sixty Restaurant. The restaurant has recently been refurbished and is under new management. The food was delicious and the service excellent. We thought the main meals were delicious and many of us said we couldn’t eat a dessert … until they came! We did of course sing for our supper too.
The dates for this term are as follows,
Last session 13th of March
No choir on 13th Feb
Return immediately after Easter on 3rd April.
Thank you to our choir leader Janet Swan for all the hard work this year and for the ‘surprise’ spread last night…. as somebody said ..’we are so much more than just a choir’.
Don’t forget we return on the 9th of January. Happy Christmas everybody.
Over twenty Choir members and Janet had a lovely meal together at Loom Makers in Burnley on Sunday evening after we had enjoyed singing at Burnley and Nelson United Reformed Church’s carol service.
Our Christmas tree looked resplendent and we don’t look bad ourselves, do we?
Thanks to all who braved the weather and sang so well. As always, thanks to Janet for encouraging us and holding us together.
After the Star Team’s hard work making decorations, our tree will join those of other organisations at Burnley and Nelson United Reformed Church later this week.
Volunteers who can help to take the tree and decorate it on Wednesday 6th December between 11am and 2pm would be greatly appreciated. The church will be open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday during similar hours so that visitors can call in and see the trees which will still be in place for our singing at the carol service on Sunday.
We were able to celebrate Janet’s birthday at our last session. The cake had been carefully frozen by Jackie after an unexpected gap in our meetings.
Thank you, Jackie. And many happy returns, Janet.
Our Star Team, a small group from Singing for the Soul Choir met today to make ‘stars’ for our Christmas tree for the festival at United Reform Church December 7th to December 12th. Thank you Sheila for the hospitality and the choccy biscuits.
