Upcoming events » Music for our Welbeing: URC Music Network Celebration Day
a day to explore how music in many areas of life (including church) helps us to be whole human beings.
The aim of this year’s annual music day is to discover how music can help bring joy and relief beyond the spiritual refreshment we should all feel during our Christian worship. Our workshops will help us understand more about how music can heal as well as inspire and provide opportunities for sharing experience and musical gifts. We will explore the place of singing and music in supporting people living with dementia, their families and carers.
Our key speaker is Jennifer Kavanagh: Jennifer is a Quaker, retreat leader and speaker and writer on the Spirit-led life. She is also a trained singer. Music is central to her life if not to her (largely silent) Quaker worship! You can find out more about Jennifer here: Jennifer Kavanagh
We will also be joined by David Tims: David has been running Singing for the Brain sessions for the Alzheimer’s Society for 6 years. He’ll get us doing a musical brain workout to help us understand more about how music impacts on our wellbeing, and he won’t use any lyrics!
Anne Sardeson (Thames North Synod Training Officer) will also be asking us to consider if hymns are good for all.
We'll also get a chance to worship togfether and hear the organ at Palmers Green URC.
Ir promises to be a good day, and for £10 will include a soup lunch and light refreshments. Feel free to bring something to suppliment your lunch.
