Second Thoughts Series 2018


Peter Lutton       Of Hymns and Hymnbooks

Peter writes: ‘I want to speak about the gradual evolution of our hymnody from the paraphrased psalms through the non-conformist contributions and the addition of religious poems such as those of George Herbert. I can show examples of the old metrical versions from two bibles I have and I hope to produce an original Hymns Ancient and Modern, as well as examples of hymns and books that we do not use today, for good reason. There will no doubt be time for some consideration of where hymnody is now.’


Peter’s background is straightforward. He taught music at St John's, Leatherhead for 35 years, and has been organist at Weston Green and St Mary's, Ewell and is now at St Nicolas, Great Bookham.

Forgetting but not forgotten, A dementia friends Information Session

Tony will talk about Dementia, how it can impact on people and also how we can help support people living with dementia.

My role at the diocese is to support parishes over how they support people in need in their community. My background is in Social work and Social care particularly for older people and I have a passion for ensuring that our churches recognise and value the contribution that older people can make along with recognising their needs
