Park hymns lift spir­its

Midwest Times - - ENTERTAINMENT - Ge­off Vi­vian

A Jurien Bay church held a Hymns in the Park ser­vice at the town’s Dob­byn Park ear­lier this month.

Church com­mit­tee or­gan­iser and parish­ioner Nick Blow­ers said they sang eight hymns and told the sto­ries of how and why they came to be writ­ten.

“Most started their lives as po­ems af­ter disasters be­fall the poet who came to ac­claim God,” Mr Blow­ers said.

“They were put to mu­sic shortly af­ter they were writ­ten.”

He de­scribed the Jurien Bay Com­mu­nity Church as a non-de­nom­i­na­tional church that met at the CWA Hall. Mr Blow­ers said they planned an­other Hymns in the Park on Sun­day, Novem­ber 18.

En­quiries to church sec­re­tary Jim Rees are wel­come on 9652 1949.
