Queen Street Methodist Church came alive when Lurgan Musical Society came to visit.

The Church council had agreed to hold a concert, organised by one of its members Mr John Patterson JP on Friday, March 11, when the Church hosted Lurgan Musical Society with its Musical director Michelle Harte.

Lurgan Musical Society is a cross community choir which has held performances in many venues for various causes and charities, raising thousands of pounds in the process.

The programme included two of Wesley’s great Hymns, ‘O for a thousand tongues to sing’, as well as, ‘And can it be’ and Newton’s ‘Amazing Grace’.

The society’s repertoire comes from many sources such as opera and operetta, as well as beautiful popular melodies such as ‘Bring him home’ from Les Miserables and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Love changes everything’.

Perhaps the highlight came when Michelle Harte gave an amazing rendition of ‘The Holy City’.

Proceeds from the concert went to the Musical Society’s preferred charities and Queen Street’s building fund.

Afterwards everyone was invited to a sumptuous supper in the church hall – something that thanks to friends of Queen Street and ladies of the congregation is always a treat.
