After many many years of leading the First Sunday Band, Mary Tester has decided it is time to retire. As a consequence,we met the First Sunday Band members at the beginning of September to talk about its future. The consensus of the band members was that Mary’s retirement marked a good point for the band to, well, disband. Members felt it was difficult to find someone to lead the Band and that it was time to look for new ways of providing music in worship at this service.
Consequently, St Mary’s First Sunday Band will be leading our musical worship for the last time on the First Sunday of December – 3rd December, which is also Advent Sunday. There will be a chance to thank Mary and others for their ministry on that day.
