Listen to the Bands!
Wednesday, 9th December, half way through the Christmas Tree Festival at St Faith's,
saw us welcoming two very different bands.
The lunchtime entertainment was provided by the Merchant Taylors' School Swing Band
providing a concert of foot-tapping music.
The evening, under the auspices of the St Faith's Services Family Support Group (see their web page here)
saw the welcome return of the Lancashire Artillery Volunteer Band, under bandmaster WOI S. Housden, MCMI.
They treated a full house to two brass band Christmas medleys, book-ending a beautiful service of readings,
prayers and congregational carol singing, to which they provided a rousing accompaniment.
Proceeds from the sale of refreshments, together with a retiring collection, were as usual given to service charities.
Finally, when all had left, the trees glowed on, with individual petitions hanging on the Prayer Tree in the Sanctuary.
