Callum Gubby, Organist at Liberton Kirk, writes: “I… invite you and your congregation to Evening Songs of Praise on Saturday 10th November at Liberton Kirk to commemorate the Centenary of the Armistice.
It will be an opportunity to sing the beloved evening hymns so seldom heard nowadays, including the stalwarts of ‘Abide with Me’, ‘The Day Thou Gavest, Lord, is Ended’, ‘Saviour, again, to Thy dear name’, whilst reflecting upon the theme of Remembrance.
The event will follow a similar format to a Service of Nine Lessons and Carols, with evening hymns interspersed with lessons, poetry, testimony, and reflection. It will surely be a very meaningful night, particularly as November 11th serendipitously falls on Remembrance Sunday the following morning, and thus the evening will bring forth the passing of the Great War from recent history.
The event is free, non-ticketed, and open to all. I hope you will also be able to attend Evening Songs of Praise.”
