From a brass fanfare through a horn quartet, guitarists, singers, pianists, handbells, poetry and more besides, the audience was well entertained. Read the full story here and see photos of some of the performers here.

Stephen Tanner came to interview on Monday and he and the interview panel agreed that this seems to be the right thing at the right time for both parties. Stephen will take his first choir practice this Friday evening and is also available to play for us this Sunday morning. A man of huge experience, being assistant organist at Exeter Cathedral, and Director of music at Exeter cathedral school (he taught Chris Martin of Coldplay fame), he directs choirs with an international reputation. “Isca voices” have performed both at Notre Dame in Paris and St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. We are happy to welcome Stephen to the Raleigh Mission community.

On Sunday 13th January the RMC held a special service and celebratory farewell lunch for James, who has retired after just over 4 years as Church, Schools and Families Coordinator. He has been involved in so many things, including Open the Book, the Youth Group, visiting schools and leading services, and will be much missed.
