Bognor Regis Springfield Choir performs at two nursing homes

Plymouth Brethren Choir

The residents of the nursing homes in Bognor were treated to an hour of live music when around 25 young members of the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church came in early February to bring cheer and refreshment to these old peoples’ lives. The choir, after months of rehearsals, gave a pleasing performance that left the residents begging for more. Staff and residents were equally appreciative “They haven’t stopped talking about it since” said one of the staff, several weeks after the event. “When can you come back?”

So three months later during May, they did just that – the young people returned to Sussex Down Care Home, an ex-RAF home, set in the South Downs at Storrington, to perform again, with an increased repertoire of 15 songs. The choir sang a selection of well-known songs and hymns, which included many of the old favourites which they could – and did – join in with, such as We’ll Meet Again and The White Cliffs of Dover, and hymns such as The Lord is my Shepherd and The Glory of the Lord. It was once again received with delight by residents and staff alike. After the performance the choir distributed bibles and gifts to many of the residents.

“It is so kind of you young people to come and sing to us oldies” was the comment from one old lady. “The music was wonderful. It’s made my week.” And it was an excellent opportunity for that most basic Christian practice of doing something for others. The short clip attached shows the choir in action – we hope you enjoy it!

    Absolutely beautiful! The singing and harmonies were magnificent. It moved me to tears. Fantastic idea to include the whole songs underneath. I particularly loved White Cliffs of Dover and King of Kings. Thank you so much!

      I found this problem too, but usually only on Internet Explorer. If you download and use Google Chrome: (might need unblocked)

      then they seem to work ok.

  18. Roots says:
