A service of Choral Evensong was held in St Bride’s Parish Church, Kilbride, on Sunday May 13 for the first time in a number of years.
The service was led by the Rev Canon David Humphries, and the normal church choir was joined by a number of guest singers from other churches.
The service included ‘Magnificat’ and ‘Nunc Dimittis’ by Basil Harwood in A flat, as well as the anthem ‘Look at the World,’ written by John Rutter, with the lessons read by the Rev Canon Walter Laverty.
The choir was conducted by St Bride’s Director of Music Beth Aiken and was accompanied on the church organ by Dr Joe McKee.
This uplifting service of music was greatly appreciated by the congregation.
The next service of Choral Evensong in St Bride’s will be the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the consecration of St Bride’s on Sunday June 10 at 3.30pm.
