On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 24th, 25th and 26th May, the Revd Bethan Scotford sang her way through all the psalms in the Bible’s Book of Psalms to raise funds for the ‘Guilsfield Church Heating Boiler Appeal’. This event raised approximately £1700. There are 150 psalms in the psalter, and they all vary in length. The shortest psalm, containing only two verses, is psalm 117, whilst psalm 119 contains 176 verses. The total number of verses from all the psalms amounts to 2,413. Bethan will be chanting the psalms in English and in Welsh; some of the settings will be metrical and others will be intoned. A short video clip of Bethan singing can be see here:
The event was well supported with people attending on each of the days to follow the psalms and in some cases join in. Tea, coffee, cakes and scones were served on the Saturday.
We had an exciting and exhausting couple of days on Tuesday and Wednesday 20th – 21st March sharing the story of Easter with the children from Guilsfield School. See Experience Easter 2018 for more information and pictures.
