RES­I­DENTS sang their hearts out at a sum­mer songs of praise morn­ing.

Around 50 peo­ple at­tended the event at Harry Law­son Court in Hurds­field.

Mem­bers of so­cial group the Time Out team from Holy Trin­ity Church joined with res­i­dents from Harry Law­son Court and lo­cal peo­ple to sing songs to­gether.

Peo­ple chose 12 of their favourite praise songs. It was led by Rev Phil Wil­liams and his wife Julie. Phil ac­com­pa­nied the sing­ing on gui­tar.

Joy Cot­ter­ill, from the Time Out group, said: “Each song was in­tro­duced by Phil, who talked about the writer and com­poser and what had in­spired them to cre­ate the song.

“It was a very up­lift­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and ev­ery­one sang their hearts out.

“Af­ter­wards we sat down to straw­ber­ries and cream and a cup of tea.

“It was a lovely morn­ing and en­joyed by all.”

The Time Out group was formed by Joy with friend Ann Ven­tris and oth­ers from Holy Trin­ity Church and meets each month at Harry Law­son Court, a shel­tered hous­ing scheme on Crewe Av­enue.

It’s a so­cial gath­er­ing for older peo­ple, at­tract­ing church mem­bers and the wider com­mu­nity.
