Join us for Hymnfest – Sunday 22nd June at 2 pm

Hymnfest 6-2014The Maitland Bible Society Hymnfest, first held here in 2010, will once again be held in St Peter’s, this year on the afternoon of Sunday 22nd June at 2 pm.

Singers from the Presbyterian, Uniting, Roman Catholic, Baptist and Anglican churches will share in singing favourite hymns from all our traditions.

The Maitland Gilbert and Sullivan Orchestra led by Carolyn Gregg, our organist Evanne Sherringham, the choir, and conductor Kath Waddell, will lead the singing.

The Hon Milton Morris who acted as Master of Ceremonies on the first two occasions, has retired from this role, but will be singing with us in the choir, and this year our MC will be the Mayor of Maitland, Councillor Peter Blackmore.

During the proceedings there will be a collection for the work of the Bible Society in Australia.  Afternoon Tea in the grounds of the church after the hymn singing, will provide an opportunity for us to share fellowship with each other.
