8th September 2021

After our enforced postponement of our meetings due to the Covid restrictions it was with great pleasure that we could invite members to join us again to our September meeting.

The committee was pleased by the number of members that were able to attend the first meeting of the winter session.

Our first talk was about Henry Francis Lyte, who wrote the very famous hymn  “Abide with Me”.  The talk was, given by John Lyte, a descendent of this very talented and inspirational man.  He was assisted in the presentation of the talk by his wife Joan.

Henry Francis Lyte wrote over 300 hymns and a number of poems.  A great number of the hymns are still sung in our churches today and at other gatherings.

John gave us an insight into the life of Henry Francis Lyte, from his childhood, to his calling to the work of the Church and his life in Brixham. 

This was a very interesting and informative talk and was enjoyed by those that attended.

You will be pleased to hear that your Committee has been working tirelessly over the last few months to get everything in place  to enable our monthly meetings to recommence  –  and we’ve done it! 

Our monthly meetings will start again on Wednesday 8th September 2021 at the Elland Working Men’s Club, South Lane, Elland at 7.15 pm.

We look forward to welcoming old and new members to our meeting in September.

Everyone who is attending any meetings needs to be mindful of others. If you are feeling unwell it would be preferable if you remain at home.
