Our Let there be music project ended today with a celebration concert. The project has seen the organ restored, a community choir formed, a new organist in post, three major singing and music projects with our brilliant primary schools. So over 100 children singing, playing ukeleles and brass instruments , a new community choir joining them. Our 'Thornhill is the only place i would like to be' song was reprised. The theme: love, peace and care for our planet. Through music we all learned about the importance of community and care for our world. Well done everyone. Thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund ,Musica Kirklees and more.
What an amazing concert it was with three choirs, brass, ukeleles and more here is the link for the photos

There are lists at the back of both churches if you wish to bring a contribution to the buffet: Thornhill are providing savoury food and Whitley the desserts.
Karen Liles
We are sad to announce the passing of the longest serving member of our church choir. Karen Lyles died last night in Kirkwood Hospice with her family around her. Karen will be sorely missed not only for her lovely voice but her loving, caring and fun personality. Her daughter Lizzie is in our choir and is training up her two sons Harry and James and her niece Poppy to follow grandma. Love and Blessings to you
