Sung Evensongs (various weekdaysat 6pm) are followed by supper and talks ontravel, history, applied religion, etc.We’ve just launched a campaign to expand ourchoir. Anglican services include much singing(hymns, canticles, psalms, anthems), so we needa strong choir to lead the congregation. Rehearsalsare Thursdays 7:30pm to 9pm, with a warmupSundays at 10am.
