Music development

We have just comp[leted a project to develop the music offered at Thornhill Parish Church. This includes developing the exisiting choirs in the Benefice churches,  setting up a community choir, and building on our musical links with local schools.. There is some Admin support available. The Project ended in July  2019

Children regularly come into the church. Here are two photos  when two local schools came to hear the restored organ demonstrated.
