ALL METHODISTS ARE INVITED to gather and celebrate God’s grace in the annual Aldersgate Hymn Festival at Paya Lebar Methodist Church on May 26, 2013 (Sunday). The theme for this year’s festival is “Called Together By His Grace”.
The festival will illustrate the teaching of Charles Wesley on grace, based on Laurence Hull Stookey’s essay “Charles Wesley, Mentor and Contributor to Liturgical Renewal”. The essay was published in Charles Wesley: Poet and Theologian, edited by S.T. Kimbrough, Jr.
Hymns by Charles Wesley, hymns from The United Methodist Hymnal, and choral anthems will be presented. Musical instruments to be featured include the organ, piano, a brass quartet, a timpani, and handbells.
The festival seeks to bring together the three Annual Conferences in The Methodist Church in Singapore – the Chinese Annual Conference, Emmanuel Tamil Annual Conference, and Trinity Annual Conference – and encourage the participation of the wider Methodist community.
All interested choristers are welcome to sing in the festival. Rehearsals will be held at the Sophia Blackmore Hall in the Methodist Centre at Barker Road on Tuesdays, beginning March 5, 2013 (Tuesday) at 7.30 pm.
To register as a chorister, call Ms Alpia Carolasan or Ms Margaret Mok at 6767-5258.
