The Roseland Churches Choir was formed in June, 2009 – putting an end to the hole created by the lack of choirs in any of the five Roseland Churches. The Choir made its debut performance on Sunday 30th August 2009, singing evensong at Ruan Lanihorne as part of the Feast Day celebrations for St. Rumons. The reception was enthusiastic and the general consensus was that the standard was high and it had been a very promising start to the venture. Invitations resulted from other churches for similar involvements.
At least once a year, many Christians become aware of the great diversity of ways of adoring God. Hearts are touched, and people realize that their neighbours' ways are not so strange.
The event that touches off this special experience is something called the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. Traditionally celebrated between 18-25 January (in the northern hemisphere) or at Pentecost (in the southern hemisphere), the Week of Prayer enters into congregations and parishes all over the world. Pulpits are exchanged, and special ecumenical worship services are arranged.
What is Christian Aid Week?
Christian Aid Week is seven amazing days of fundraising, action and prayer. It's a time when communities all over the country get together to raise funds to make real and lasting changes in the lives of some of the world’s poorest people.
