Celebrating 150 years of the Clumber Church Building in 2017

Clumber Church


Set aside the dates of October 21 and 22 2017. You are heading to Clumber Church! We are going to have a Celebration of note.What are we celebrating? A major event - 150 years of existence of the Church building. Now that is something to celebrate. The planning of our 150 year Celebration is well underway. On the Saturday, October 21, we will have a day of music and song and a Celebratory Holy Communion on the Sunday, October 22, followed by a tea.

Thanks to Freda Bradfield for coordinating the event. Her fabulous Saturday music programme includes the Graeme College Steel Band, Merrill Baker on the organ, the Alfred Mnaba Choir from Nemato in Port Alfred, St Andrews School musicians and soloists, the choir as well as soloists from Diocesan School for Girls and the superb Kentones, an all male choir from Kenton on Sea.

On Sunday October 22 our Rev Kalipa and our District Bishop will be officiating at a Celebratory Holy Communion. This will be followed by a Social Tea.

The Clumber Community is so appreciative of the wonderful support they have received from the wider community in restoring Clumber Church, that we are now giving back to the public by opening our doors wide over this weekend with a "no fee" admission. Not only will this music programme be free of charge, but we will also supply a light lunch, also at no charge. We plan to start around 11h00 and finish around 15h00. Now that is an offer you simply cannot refuse! Join us as the Mount Mercy hill resounds with Music.
