St.Mary's is affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM), and this was one of our chosen charities for last year. Because of the problems with the organ, we postponed a collection until such time as the new organ was in place. The RSCM has a Music Sunday every year, when funds can be raised both for the RSCM, and all that it does to support music in our Churches, and also for music in our own Church. Her Majesty The Queen is Patron of the RSCM, so this year we will be marking a double celebration. There was a retiring collection for the RSCM's 50:50 Appeal after the 9:30am service on Sunday, 12 June 2016, so that proceeds could be split between the charity and our own musical needs.  There was a strong focus on music within the 9:30am service. Thank you to everyone who contributed, and who came and supported the choir and organists!
