This half day will be perfect for clergy, church musicians and lay leaders to find inspiration for the times when we want to grieve with others. We will be introducing new songs, hymns and chants, giving some tips on liturgy, sharing resources and hearing from one another.

This is organised by HeartEdge and will be led by Andrew Earis, Director of Music at St Martin-in-the-Fields and Andy Salmon, North West Coordinator of HeartEdge and Rector of Sacred Trinity. The communal music-making will be supported by the new Manchester HeartEdge Choral Scholars.

The day costs £5 and we will supply plenty of tea, coffee and cake but you need to bring your own lunch. Please note that there are very limited parking spaces outside the church but it is a short walk from Manchester Victoria and Salford Central and on many bus routes. There are car parks near by. The day will finish with a public concert of about 40 minutes, which is part of the new Great Sacred Music series run by HeartEdge Manchester.
