We meet in the Reid large hall, West Savile Terrace, Edinburgh EH9 3HY for an afternoon of our favourite hymns accompanied on the grand piano by Huw Thomas, and followed by a cup of tea. It would make the afternoon very special if you could suggest your favourite hymn, and even better if you would say a few words to introduce it. Social distancing will be observed and masks worn if possible please.

For either of the above face-to-face meetings it would be appreciated
if members could do a lateral flow test prior to attending if at all possible please.


I hope you are all keeping well and look forward to seeing you soon.
