  Queen's Platinum Jubilee Beacon Lighting
 

As part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Beacon Lighting, Lower Withington Methodist Church had a Bonfire Beacon on Thursday 2nd June at 9:45pm.  The Choir and Brass Band performed together for the first time after signing up to sing the specially written Commonwealth Song “A Life Lived with Grace”.

This has allowed Lower Withington Methodist Church to continue with the tradition of singers being accompanied with musical instruments.  This dates back to 1856 (1870 in most 20th century reports), where at a Methodist missionary meeting in 1870 there was an appeal made for money.  In response to this, several young men agreed to go around the villages carol singing over Christmas, as the years went by musical instruments were introduced to lead the singing raising money for the Methodist Missionary Society.  Today the Brass Band continues this tradition of playing carols around the village at Christmas and so it was really special to join with the choir at this special event to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
