Making Your Dreams Come True
Readings and Prayers.
Check here for details of different readings and prayers.
If you want a non-Biblical reading apart from one on this list, you need to run it past me.
Please ask family or friends to do the readings... or at least the non-Biblical reading, which should normally precede the Bible reading.
Music and Hymns.
Please speak to the organist Michael Leach (01977 704989) about the music you wish to walk into Church to, and leave Church to, and check he knows the hymns.
Please speak to the organist Michael Leach (01977 704989) if you wish to have a Church choir.
Not all musicians are suitable for playing in Church. They should not distract attention from the bride. The vicar’s permission must be granted before you book any musicians or a choir.
There is very little space in our Churches for musicians and they must not block the fire exits.
