CARRINGTON, SHERWOOD, MAPPERLEY:
Easter is just around the corner...but it will look very different this year.
We want to try and share the joy of Easter and bring church and the wider community in Carrington, Sherwood and Mapperley together.
Some of you may have seen a video doing the rounds of various Hollywood celebrities each singing a line of John Lennon's 'Imagine.' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fDIZj9BX9U
We'll avoid making any comment about it....!
What we as churches would like to do is produce our own version of the Easter hymn 'Thine Be The Glory.' This would involve anyone in the community singing a part of the hymn which would be edited together and shared on Easter day. We hope it might speak to Christians of the power of Easter and really bring a sense of joy and hope throughout the community.
If you'd like to get involved and you’re up for it, can you:
1. Pick a verse and a chorus of the hymn. Lyrics here: https://hymnary.org/text/thine_is_the_glory_risen_conquering
2. Pitch it at the same key/tempo as the video
3. Film yourself in portrait mode singing it (ideally a capella and in the same key as the YouTube video above.)
4. Send it via WhatsApp to 075950 353 42 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Let's get singing!
