Friends of the Music
Who are the Friends of the Music?
The Friends of the Music at St Mary’s believe that music enriches worship and enables people to experience a deeper sense of the presence of God and the creativity of humanity. Our parish church music making has a long tradition which is evolving in many new ways.
A message from our Priest
As a Christian Church the most important thing that we do is to worship God; the second most important thing that we do is to enable others to worship God. At St Mary’s the music that is offered is one of the main ways in which that worship is undertaken, and to nurture that music and the musicians who lead us in it is a noble and vital task.
I hope that when you read this web page and join in the worship which St Mary’s offers through its music, you will be moved to support the ’Friends of the Music at St Mary’s’.
I thank you for your support which will enable us to continue to lift our voices and hearts in worship of the God and Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ, for many years to come.
May God bless you.
