Platinum Jubilee Weekend

Our Platinum Jubilee Celebrations began on Thursday 2nd June as our Church Choir joined with the choirs of Nottingham RC Cathedral and Derby Cathedral for a concert a musical celebration of Her Majesty the Queen in St. Barnabas Cathedral. This included a range of music connected with royal occasions as well as the piece, A life lived with grace, written to be sung as the Jubilee beacons were lit across the Commonwealth.

On Sunday 5th June, as well as celebrating Pentecost, morning worship marked the seventy years of service of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
During worship, we received the beautiful Jubilee Bowl, commissioned from Sophie Robins, using some of our grant award from the Arts Councils’ Let’s Create Jubilee Fund.

Following worship, we gathered (mostly in our halls due to the rain and cold) for our Street Party to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
