CHURCH MAGAZINE – APRIL 2017

Vicar’s letter

Father Nicholas spoke of how Anglicans are the rich tradition of hymnody we have inherited and which adorns our worship throughout the year. Hymns are so much a part of the way we do things in the Church of England. He went on to talk about hymns and singing.
