Hymns on the Porch

At last, we are able to sing together again, at least outside! And so we shall pick up where we left off in the summer of 2019. 
Join us on Wed., Aug. 18, at 7 p.m. on our front porch and stair landing facing Stockley Gardens to sing songs from Wales. Bring your own chair, your own water (sorry, no lemonade this year), your voices, and your instruments. We will have music for you and fans to keep you cool. We are looking forward to seeing and hearing you!
