‘Singing Nowhere’ with Paul Heppleston
Saturday 23rd March (evening) Sunday 24th March (morning)
Abberley Village Hall
By popular demand Paul Heppleston is returning to lead a singing workshop at Abberley Village Hall on Saturday 23rd March at 7pm, and also to lead worship based on the workshop the following morning, 10.00am, at the same venue. Look out for more detail on notice boards and fliers, which will be available soon.
From Paul: “Participation in song (especially in a group) is known to be energising and therapeutic. Add a spiritual dimension and the fact that ‘people tend to sing their faith’, including songs that can speak louder than sermons”.
All you need to bring is a voice box of whatever age or ability plus a smile. Especially welcome are people who say “I can’t sing”… bring your friends, neighbours, relatives etc.
The Iona Community is Paul’s main inspiration, plus others…
Paul Heppleston was brought up in South Wales and has spent most of his adult life in Scotland. Ecological training at university was followed by several years’ work on sheep, snails and seals – then into teaching Biology. Music in the broadest sense was threaded through his childhood but only emerged to be the main factor in his life in his 40s.
Paul spent 20 years in Orkney and now lives in the Peak District where he is the Musician at his Baptist/Methodist LEP church. He travels north as often as possible where wild walking draws him back, as well as to his daughter in Glasgow and the islands that are so significant in his life. He belongs to the Iona Community.
Come and join with ‘Singing Nowhere’ and bring your friends.
