Mulbarton Community Choir - Lyric Writing Competition

Mulbarton Community Choir are holding a 'Lyric Writing Competition' to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War One.

The choir are looking for a school student to write new words to the chorus of ‘Song of Liberty’, a poem set to Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No.4.There will be two categories: primary school age and secondary school age. One winner from each category will be chosen. Both winners will hear their lyrics read out during Mulbarton Community Choir’s Remembrance concert on Saturday 10 November in St Remigius’ Church, Hethersett. There will be one overall winner, whose entry will be performed by the choir at the Remembrance concert. The overall winning entry will be announced on the night of the concert. The winner of each category will win £25 for themselves and two complimentary tickets to Mulbarton Community Choir’s Remembrance concert with Norfolk Wherry Brass. They will also win a WW1-themed book for their school’s library, to be presented to the school by representatives of the choir. The overall winner will win an additional £25 for themselves. It has been possible to run this competition due to the award of a grant from South Norfolk Council.

The closing date for entries is 5pm, Friday 19th October. Entries should be sent to Lin Goram, either by email at mcc-competition@outlook.com, or by post to 31 Catmere Herne, Mulbarton, Norfolk, NR14 8NU.

Meditating on the Fruit of the Spirit

After an inspiring 5th Sunday meditative service at the end of April, led by Rachel, at Mulbarton Church, some people asked to see the powerpoint, so here it is. The passage was John 15, where Jesus describes himself as "the true vine", and his followers as fruit-bearing branches.
