Dou­ble the fun for church

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

ST Michael and All An­gels church, in Amer­sha­mon-the-Hill, is invit­ing the com­mu­nity to cel­e­brate the Queen’s of­fi­cial 90th birth­day and its own 50th birth­day on Sun­day (June 12).

The church, in Sy­camore Road, is cel­e­brat­ing its 50th an­niver­sary this year and the fes­tiv­i­ties be­gin with an evening Eucharist cen­tred around Mozart’s Mass in D.

Chiltern Hun­dreds Bach Choir and Chor­ley­wood Cham­ber Orches­tra will per­form the Mass as part of the 6.30pm ser­vice, which will be­gin the cel­e­bra­tions of 50 years since the cur­rent church build­ing was ded­i­cated, as well as mark­ing a re­cent re­fur­bish­ment of the church or­gan.

St Michael’s new vicar Rev Deb­bie Oades said: “There’s some­thing very spe­cial about hear­ing the glo­ri­ous mu­sic of a Mozart Mass in the con­text for which it was com­posed – as part of a Eucharist.

“This will be a very spe­cial way of cel­e­brat­ing the re­fur­bish­ment of our mag­nif­i­cent or­gan, as well as the Golden Ju­bilee of our church build­ing.”

The an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions will con­tinue in Septem­ber with a spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tion to be held in the church, look­ing back at its his­tory and the role it plays to­day at the heart of the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Other events will be an­nounced in due course.
