Big day for village church in Hellingly

This Sunday (November 30) begins the season of Advent - the start of the church’s year - which for many is an important festival.

At the church of St Peter and St Paul in Hellingly it is particulary so as two new singers are being installed as full members of the choir at a short ceremony laid down by the Royal School of Church Music. All are welcome to attend the ceremony at 10.45am. Music for the occasion is a composition by Palastrina. The organist will be Peter Willson, and the 16 voices of the choir are to be directed by John Francis.
