Further information:

We are offering a space for singing with intention. Nick and Fiona are offering to lead harmony singing for all voices. New and/or experienced singers are all welcome. The songs will be from many faiths and none, and will be taught gently, by ear. Wordsheets will be available, as well as sometimes music scores for those who would like them.

We aim to create a simple sacred space, there will be a candle and perhaps a few seasonal flowers. We invite you to join us for some beautiful uplifting harmonies, in a safe and trusting atmosphere, and to leave all that happens in our hearts when we go.

After each song we will hold a few moments silence, with perhaps a longer one at the end. There will be an opportunity to chat after the session, with talking discouraged while we are learning and singing the songs.

Songs will be drawn from Taizé, Findhorn, Harmonic Temple, Nick Prater, John Bowker among others, and we welcome other contributions. Some will be very simple; others will require a little learning, but we hope to spend only a few minutes teaching each song and will then sing them for a while. Some will be in two or more parts; others will be rounds. Those who wish to come but do not want to sing are also welcome.

There will be some heartwarming songs. Some might inspire a more contemplative mood, while others may bring about deep emotion.

£7 per session, includes a cup of herb tea and optional hug afterwards!

Note: The Roses Suite is on the 2nd floor of the Convent and is, sadly, unsuitable for some to access. Please contact us for information – we’ll help if we can!

Please let us know if you are coming – you will need the door code to get in!
