At the 10am Family Service in St Paulís Parish Church last Sunday morning (24th September) the Mayor - Councillor Trevor Lunn assisted by Elaine Coey - Director of Music, presented Certificates of Achievement to 16 young people who successfully completed a Summer Music School held in the church during the summer months. They were: Keyboards - Mark McCarthy, Victoria Orr, Mary Kurian and Ella Thackray; Guitar - Mark Nettleship, Chris Nettleship, Amy Abernethy, Liju Kurian, Cheryl Walker and Jonathan Walker; Flute - Amy Jamison; Drums - Christopher Cochrane; Singers - Clare Nettleship, Rebecca Stevenson, Naomi Orr and Ashlea Thompson.

After presenting the awards, the Mayor, a former organist, congratulated the young people and gave special congratulations to Elaine Coey - Director of Music and everyone involved in training them. He also thanked members of the large worship group that led the praise.

In his welcome and announcements, the Rector, the Rev James Carson said, ďIt is a privilege to welcome the Mayor and his wife to St Paulís this morning to present certificates to our young people who completed the School of Music which we held this summer. We want to thank the young people and their parents for their willingness to participate in what has been a new venture for us as a parish. This was made possible by Elaine Coey - Director of Music and our worship group leaders Peter Blake and Richard McCrossan.Ē

In the childrenís address, puppeteers Rosemary Orr and Emma Carson introduced puppets Betty and Alex who spoke about the importance of going out of your way to make friends with people who are new to us. This was aptly supported in an address by the Rev James Carson who told the story of Ruth and how she was accepted as a stranger in a foreign country.

Liz Sloan led the prayers; and Peter Blake - Praise Band leader and Elaine Coey - Director of Music and members of the worship group led the praise. Worship songs were: Far and Near, Lord we lift your name, Hosanna, Power of your Love and Jesus be the centre.
