The year 2016 was another eventful on for the Chapel Choir. There were a few changes in the choir schedule in 2016 after a subdued end of year 2015.
The annual Choir workshop and retreat outside of the Chapel premises did not hold during the recess, but there was a one day retreat in May for the choir, with the Very Revd. (name to be attached) of (station to be attached) leading. We had the benefit of the presence of Very Revd. William Allotey-Pappoe as usual and the CRM joined us in the course of the retreat. It was another fruitful experience in the spiritual development of the Choir.
Earlier, the choir participated fully in the Mission Week program, ministering in all the programs excepting the Vigil service which was served by One Heart One Voice.
The Easter concert for the year 2016 was another successful outing to the glory of God. We continue to appreciate the efforts of the Fellowship of Love in seeing to it that this program remains a staple in the Chapel Calendar.
There was no Choir Concert in 2016 but the Choir Festival was indeed a glorious service with the Venerable Emmanuel Fregene delivering a wonderful address and the choir ministrations living up to the expectations of the congregation to the glory of God.
As usual, thanks to the Chapel authorities, there was a celebratory Choir Feast hosted by Arc. Femi and Mrs. Ebun Ayodele. We acknowledge their hospitality and thank all who contributed to the events in one way or another.
We remain grateful to all who support the work of the choir in diverse ways, especially those who silent generosity continuously propel the choir’s activities and the moral support from all quarters.
