Beautiful countryside, varied music and great company

The day begins with a workshop at which we learn the music repertoire for the day. There will be a variety of music styles, with a mix of unison singing and some 4-part harmony - some easy, some a little more challenging, but certainly something for everyone.

We then begin our walk. We encourage walkers to think of the whole day as an act of worship, meeting God through the services in each church, but also through the countryside, and in conversation with fellow-walkers.

Come prepared to sing or simply listen.

There will be an optional rehearsal for anyone who wants to come, on Friday 1 June, 7.30 - 9.45pm, at All Saints Church, Bury St Edmunds.
