An important part of Springfield Park's worship is traditional hymns, and this year has seen the acquisition at last of a new organ which is truly fit for purpose. Unconstrained by the gremlins that beset the old one, Bert Brinkley has been able to show what he can do and bring a new stirring dimension to these great hymns.
The worship group continues to try to lead, encourage and enable worship with more contemporary songs, and has been working on the balance between introducing new material and including familiar songs and choruses. There is a good pool of musicians playing an assortment of instruments – guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, flute and voices. We are ably assisted by the guys at the PA mixing desk who also handle the computer projection of the song words. We meet every Thursday evening to practice and pray together.
We have a good team of musicians, but all lead busy lives and it's not often we are able to field a complete 'band', so if you feel you could help let us know.
If you are confused by all the election waffle and hot air in the media and don't know what to do on Thursday 12th take a look at the slides and other materials presented by Gary and Peter at our pre-election 'Spin Unspun' evening on 3rd December. Go to our Past Events page where you can download the files. We won't tell you who to vote for but hopefully you will be able to make up your mind with a better knowledge of what the different parties stand for.
