Excitement mounts as villages prepare for ‘Praise in the Park’
Churches in Crosshills and District are joining forces for a ‘Songs of Praise’ style event on Sunday 9th July, 3.00pm in Sutton Park, Sutton in Craven. Local people have voted for their favourite hymns, and the top choices will be sung on the day.
As well as favourite hymns, as voted for in the poll, Praise in the Park will feature community brass band, ‘Sutton’s Got Brass’, and a choir made up of children from five local primary schools: Sutton CE, Sutton CP, Kildwick CE, Cowling CP and Eastburn J&I. Additional music will be provided by the Chris Waddington and Friends Band, returning by popular demand.
The Revd Helen Collings, Vicar of Sutton with Cowling & Lothersdale, said, “We are looking forward to this event, which involves a wide range of people from our local communities, both young and old. Thank you to everyone who voted for their favourite hymns. Please come along on Sunday afternoon to see if your favourite made it onto the programme, and to enjoy a good sing.”
