Fall is alive with the sound of music this year at Christ’s Church! And we want YOU to be a part of it!

On Saturday, September 30th 2017, the Christ’s Church Choir’s day-long Hymnathon unfolds at 9:00 AM in church, to raise scholarship funds for the choir’s Pilgrimage to England in August 2018.

The choristers and adults of the choir will be spending 12 days in England next summer, where we will sing services at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, St Mary's, Rye, and Truro Cathedral. However, we need your help to get there! 

The choristers and adults of the choir have committed to sing every hymn (or, at least the first stanza) in the 1982 Episcopal Hymnal (that's 720 hymns!) with singers being sponsored by friends, family, and others, to sing in this event. We’ll even be including a couple of parish favorites – Jerusalem, Battle Hymn of the Republic – that don’t appear in the Hymnal at the conclusion of the day.

To make this event a success we need your help! Opportunities are there to:

1. Sponsor a choir member (chorister or adult)

2. Vote for your favorite hymn so that it makes it into our top-three showdown (to be sung complete on the day)

3. Sponsor to have your favorite hymn sung complete anyway! Have it sung as you like, all verses, solo, with dancing, particular singers, costumes… go fun and be wild! Even bid to conduct the choir!

4. You can even sponsor a hymn you don’t want to be sung!

5. Sponsor an entire section of the hymnal, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Morning, Evening, Communion, etc to be sung complete.

Perhaps you like hymns yourself, or want to give it a try, in which case come along and sing for a bit. All willing singers are invited to drop in and sing with us, for as long as you like. Participants do not need to be of performance standard, just a desire to have fun singing in a beautiful building for a great cause!

You can also follow us on the live feed (link to be posted on the day)

More information on its way in the coming weeks as we count down to this extraordinary and memorable day!
