Renewed for Service
Here at Barnes Methodist Church we are blessed with a number of musicians in our congregation.
Our organist, Chris Moorhouse, plays most Sundays
and our instrumentalists often accompany the more upbeat hymns and songs.
We also now have a new group, The Sing West Choir, who sing in the church every Wednesday evening during term time. Anyone is welcome to join them or just sit and listen. You don't need to be able to read music to become a member.
On Thursday, 15th February 2020 the Barnes Music Society will be back with us, presenting one of their monthly concerts, featuring piano pieces by well known composers. Programme to be confirmed.
We mostly use the recently published Methodist "Singing the Faith" as our main source of songs and hymns. Sometimes we'll add new songs from other modern Christian composers to our services.
You'll soon learn our favourites!
We have a sublime Bechstein concert grand piano, which has allowed us to use the Church
as a concert venue and a music examination centre; it also enhances our singing enormously.
When planning our redevelopment we made sure that the Bevington pipe organ would remain a key part of the building. It is an old and treasured instrument which just celebrated its 90th anniversary, with a somewhat mysterious past. It was purchased by our congregation in 1926 but initially built for a residential property.
If you are interested in learning more about the organ, or want to know a little more about how it works,
please speak to one of our musicians after a service.
