Heavenly voices filled the hall

The vocal and handbell Christmas choirs at St. Alban's were divine.

Dear Editor

Every faith, every spiritual path was there – united in the most vibrant, power-filled energy that any community ever encountered. First they sang and then Michelle Reid, the director, led a sing-along. One man said to me he had never heard such powerful voices pouring out of a sing-along group of people.

The combined voices of the community were filled with unbelievable power. The power of the Holy Spirit poured through us.

I, who can’t sing, sang! I sang strongly and I’m convinced, I sang in time and as sweetly and truly as a nightingale ever sang in Barkley Square.

You should have been there – the night the Holy Spirit came to St Alban’s Hall.
