April 2019:

These are the suggested hymns for the month of April, selected from the Southwark Diocese Music Planner. We will rehearse on Mondays and depending on rehearsals and availability of musicians will then choose the repertoire, therefore the hymn numbers may be subject to change. 

The final selected hymns will appear on the main web page Hymns. Updates of the final version will be posted 24 hours after the Thursday rehearsal. 

The hymns below are suggestions and subject to change.
