This annual celebration was held at Christ Church, High Street, Waltham Cross, Herts EN8 7ED. Over 50 singers took part and there was a good congregation. It was also notable that over 15 of the singers were members of the Christ Church choir. Oliver Bond (from All Saints, Hockerill) supported us excellently from the elevated organ loft. We were delighted that Rev Teresa Wynne, the vicar of Christ Church, was much involved in the service including being the cantor for the Responses and attending the preparatory rehearsal..
