We are blessed with a thriving tradition of music at St Michael's. We have an active Church choir and talented musicians leading our worship, and the Church building is a frequent venue for concerts and recitals.
More information about special services, concerts and recitals can be found on the Forthcoming Events pages.
Thank you for your patience while necessary post-interview processes have been taking place over the past couple of months since we interviewed our Director of Music candidates.
I can now let you know that these have been successfully completed, and that I can announce Nathan Collins as Director of Music designate. I am pleased to be able to do this!
As we are rebuilding our worship, and choral and other music within this, there is a further step of conversation, to frame with clarity the appropriate working patterns and duties for the DoM at this point in time. So Nathan and I are engaging on this currently. I hope a formal appointment on a contract basis will begin later this Spring.
But in the meantime, including the Lent and Holy Week worship we are planning this year, Nathan will continue to lead and resource our musical worship on the current occasional basis, with intention gradually to increase its depth and frequency as we move forward.
Please pray for Nathan, his family, our congregation and choir, with thanksgiving, and that God will lead us all forward into richer and deeper worship, singing and music, praise and prayer!
Derwyn Williams, Vicar
