The second Connor Big Sing resulted in a choir of more than 60 people leading contemporary praise at a service in Lisburn Cathedral on Sunday evening, September 16.
The ‘Connor Big Sing’ was introduced last year, and was such a success and so enjoyed by all that Dean Sam Wright and Chapter of St Saviour’s at Lisburn Cathedral organised a second event.
Lisburn Cathedral Music Co-ordinator Stephen McLoughlin along with Julie Harper led and trained singers and musicians during the afternoon workshop which preceded the evening praise service.
The event was open to anyone from across Connor Diocese with an interest in contemporary Christian music including praise groups, musicians and choir members.
The evening service was led by the Rev Danielle McCullagh, Curate at Lisburn Cathedral, and the choir formed especially for the occasion was led by Julie accompanied by Stephen, Cathedral organist Andrew Skelly, and musicians from across the diocese.
Hymns included, ‘What a beautiful name’ and ‘Oh praise the name,’ and in his address Dean Wright said the overflow of worship was reaching out to others.
