It’s not everyday that a group of amateur carol-singers get asked if there is a CD of their singing, – but one member of a small crowd of appreciative listeners in Poplar Way one Saturday before Christmas did actually ask, which was encouraging to the 25 or so Christadelphians from Solihull, Shirley and Knowle and Dorridge. Equally encouraging was the fact that one bystander asked to borrow the carol book and joined in!
“We’re not a choir,” said John Botten, Bible Learning Centre co-ordinator, who had organised the event, “but we love having the chance to sing together, especially since most of us can sing harmonies, an ability which is increasingly rare these days. We were also so glad to be able to draw people’s attention to the truth about the Lord Jesus Christ at a time when he is often forgotten in the rush of present-buying and giving.”
The carol singing was also to raise money for the Air Ambulance Service and the group was even more delighted with the £208 collected!
