RSCM Devon Area October 2023 Newsletter

Dear Devon Members and Friends,

 Saturday 2nd December         Advent Carol Service                                               

Buckfast Abbey                      Rehearsal 1.30,        Service 4.30pm

Our customary start to Advent in the wonderful surroundings of Buckfast Abbey, with traditional carols, hymns and readings. If you haven’t taken part in this service before, then do come along. It’s a wonderful occasion, with lovely music, expert leadership from Matthew and inspiring organ playing from David – not to mention Fr Abbot leading the service. And The Grange is always a good place to get some lunch before the rehearsal and a cup of tea before the service.

Directed by Matthew Searles and accompanied by David Davies

The cost for attending is £7 for adults (those still at school free). We can accept cheques in advance or cards on the day, but at the moment we aren’t able to accept cash,

Please book by 24th November so that we can produce sufficient music copies.

There is no need for members of the congregation to book in advance, but early arrival is recommended as the Abbey Church is usually very full for this service

This event is on a “learn it on the day” basis.


RSCM Future

You may have seen from Hugh Morris’ emails and maybe other things being reported, that RSCM’s area network is being disbanded. Please rest assured that we are working to bring you all the usual events in future, as well as some new and exciting ones. They just won’t be labelled RSCM.  

With best wishes,

Nicholas Brown. (Devon Area Team Leader)              07765 008859
