Dear Member,

                As you know this is our week of rehearsals before Christmas and shall be taking some time off between now and February. As this is our last week, we shall be having a Christmas social in church, from 7:30pm, we are all looking forward to seeing you then. This shall be the last newsletter before we meet again in February, although I shall keep you posted of anything that is noteworthy. I apologise about there being no newsletter but I was completely snowed (not literally ) under with other things, but nothing came up that wasn’t in the last newsletter.

Dear Member,

                I hope that you all have had a really good weekend after our rather good rehearsal on Thursday. We do not have many rehearsals left until we break up for the Christmas holidays, however, that does not mean that we do not have an action-packed programme of activities until Christmas itself. It’ll be good to see you all at some point between now and when we break up for Christmas, full details of what we have planned are below and on the website: which is a one stop shop for everything that you need, if there is anything missing please do let me know. See you on Thursday.

Message from Caroline

Last week (23/11) was pretty hard work but we made our way successfully through some tricky sections of 'Higher and Higher' and 'Blessing in the Storm' and they are both sounding great. 'You’re King and you Reign' is coming together too, so well done everyone.

This coming week we’re going to work on those three tunes to get them right up to performance level and we’re also going to look at the Callington arrangement of ‘Let it Be’ which many of us really enjoyed learning at the workshop. If we have time we’ll remind ourselves of the lovely carol ‘The Angels Came’ as we haven’t many rehearsals left before Christmas.

Don’t forget - those of you who would like to try a solo verse on ‘Higher and Higher’ - please come along for 7pm, even if you haven’t put your hand up yet!!

Dear Member,

                It is always great to see so many of us at Gospel Choir led Evensong, it is usually always such an informative and worthwhile service to go. Some of you have remarked that when you leave something has always stuck with you, whether that be from the talk, or the worship or the prayer moment. If you have not had a chance to get along to a gospel choir led evensong, held on the 3rd Sunday of the month at 6:30pm in Salcombe Church. We now only have 4 more Thursday sessions before we break up for Christmas and we have a few things coming up before Christmas. As always, this newsletter and the others will be available on the website, which is a one stop shop for everything you need, if you spot anything not quite right please do let me know.

Dear Member,

                I hope that you were able to enjoy your week off last week. It felt weird not being singing last week, we are definitely singing this week. This week we have a couple of things on, we have a rehearsal on Thursday and there is a Gospel Choir led evensong on Sunday. I am sure that I will see you at some point this week. A reference copy of this newsletter will be available in the church and on the website, which is a one stop shop for everything that you could need:

Dear Member,

                On behalf of the committee it has been so great seeing everyone over the last couple of weeks and see our confidence grow in the songs that we have been learning. It has been especially great to see how those new to the choir have integrated themselves and picked up some of our repertoire brilliantly. This newsletter will be available on the website, along with all previous newsletters, everything that you need is there as well, if you do have any problems with the website please do say.

No Rehearsal Thursday

There will be no rehearsal this Thursday (9th November) as Caroline Evans is away and the committee felt as though a break could be useful. However, we shall meet as normal from the following Thursday (16th November), in Salcombe Church from 7:30pm. Even though there is no choir practise this week, that does not stop you from singing as all our song words and music is on the website for you to practise along to.
