Songs of Praise swansong

THE MONTHLY summer Songs of Praise services will begin on Sunday (April 1) at 6 p.m. in Glenprosen Church, but 2012 will see the last of these services. Having been held for almost 20 years, they have been attended regularly by local people and others have come from Perthshire in one direction, and the Mearns in the other. Over the years there have also been visitors from overseas who have been in the area holidaying with relatives, or who have been simply told by friends.

The services have helped to raise thousands of pounds for the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association through the retiring offerings.

At the service on Sunday, Lamont Forbes will lead the singing of the popular and well known hymns and songs which will include ‘Amazing Grace’, ‘The Lord is King’ and ‘Lord of the Dance’.

There will be light refreshments laid on in the village hall afterwards.
